Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Administrator work center > Transport Management and create New Transport Request.
  2. Provide Transport Request Name > Save and Open.
  3. In Transport Objects tab Click on Select under Available Transport Objects and Select Transport Object type Analytical Content.
  4. Then click on Add Selected and this will add the object selected to the Selected Transport Objects section below.
  5. After saving it, you may face an error message like 'Unexpected Error' or 'Data type of data source field XYZ is not available' or 'Key Figure is invalid'


This import error is due to the content incompatibility in your XML model file. The template file contains customer or partner created Extension fields, which are not supported by the standard Key User Analytics tool.


Upload is failing as the referenced extension fields ( Partner/KUA) present in source system is not present in target system.

  1. Key User Analytics extension fields: A page Transport Management should be done from source system to target system first. This will ensure that extension fields are created in target system with same IDs as in source system. After that, KUA report/data source upload to target system should work fine. Just make sure that these extension fields are not disturbed(removal and adding again) in target system after page upload.
  2. Partner extension fields: PDI solution download/upload should be done from source system to target system first via PDI studio. After that, KUA report/data source upload to target system should work fine.
