    Hi Siwei,

    you have to create the .ref file ("References to Customer-Specific Fields", You can add it via Developer Desktop > Solution Explorer > Add New Item > References to Customer-Specific Fields) in the SAP Cloud Application Studio (PDI/SDK) and in that file you will find the KUT filed under the Business Object and related node. you click the used check box for that field in .ref file, then you can use that KUT filed in your ABSL script logic.

    Hi Vignesh,

    thanks again, I created the .ref file and was also able to see the new field. That is fine. :)

    But this field does not appear in UI designer yet, so that I can not make for example a value help for this field.

    In my understanding this field can only be used in context of absl script, isn' it?

    Best wishes.

    Hello Siwei,

    It happens because the content created in frontend are stored in an application layer called KUT and the content created from SDK will be stored in the application Layer for the respective add-on.

    You may not be able to manipulate things from a different application layer in order to avoid inconsistencies on backend.
