Add Extension Field to other object using Extension Scenario

Hello Experts,

I have a requirement to have data flow from Account to Target groups, I understand I can use Extension field and provide Extension Scenario to Target group, and I can add the field in there. This all is possible if i have a KUT field.

However, if i create an extension field using Studio, this doesn't work.

1) Created a PES.

2) Added the PES to the extension field in Account

3) Trying to check if this field is available in Target Group

Please support me on this

    When you add a field via PES to some other object then field will be extended to the BO but not to the UIs linked. Hence to see the field in UI as well you need to extend the screen via "Extensibility Explorer"

    Ex: I added a field LoyMemberID to Customer.XBO.

    import AP.Common.GDT;
    import AP.FO.BusinessPartner.Global;
    [Extension] businessobject AP.FO.BusinessPartner.Global:Customer {
        		node AddressInformation {
           		node Common {
    		[Scenario(ProcessExtensionScenario1)] element LoyMemberID : LANGUAGEINDEPENDENT_EXTENDED_Text;
           		node CurrentEmployeeResponsible {

    And created a PES to extend it to Target Group screen as well.

    After this step the field has been extended to BO but not in UI. So now we will extend UI using UI designer.And then i went to screen /BYD_COD/SalesOnDemand/Marketing/TargetGroup/COD_TargetGroup.TI.uicomponent via UI designer.

    save and active the screen. Field should be visible now.
