2171346 - Message: Development of Solution &1 Not Permitted as Long as Backup Tenant Exists


When you login to Cloud Applications Studio or when you try to open a particular PDI solution in the Studio, you receive the warning message:

Development of solution YABC_ not permitted as long as backup tenant exists (Where YABC_ is the solution name)


  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio
  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SAP Cloud Applications Studio.
  2. Open the solution.
  3. You will receive the below warning message in a pop up window.


This warning message occurs in a development tenant, where you have 2 tenants hosted on the same phisical system.

In this case you would not be able to edit the solution, because these are cross clients and editing the solution in any of these tenants might results in inconsistencies in the other tenant.



You should either request for the deletion of the backup tenant or delete the solution from any of the tenant. Then, the solution will be in development and will allow you to make changes.
