Reproducing the Issue

You will be performing any of the following actions:

  1. Copy Solution Profile
  2. Merge
  3. Tenant Move

Above mentioned error will be displayed but you will not be able to find any add on solution in the Custom Object Builder(COB) as you have not created any.


The KUT solution is implicitly created first time when a CBO(Custom Business Object) is created (in case of test tenant ) and CBO is uploaded (in case of productive tenant).

If you naviagte to the following path

  1. Login to frontend UI.
  2. Naviagate to Administrator work center.
  3. Click on Custom Object Builder link.
  4. Here only the custom objects can be seen and not the KUT solution name(Y name).

A KUT solution will get automatically created if you add any custom BO's in the UI, which will be created by SAP and you would not be able to see it in the frontend. If you login to SDK you will be able to see a KUT solution there, but you cannot perform any actions in this solution.

Download and upload of the custom solutions can be done through below path:

  1. Login to frontend UI.
  2. Navigate to the work center Custom Solution Builder.
  3. Here you can perform create/ upload / download.

In Custom Object Builder, you can create/download/upload/delete the custom objects. The KUT solution is implicitly created. Now if you want to upload this to the production tenant you have to raise an case with SAP Support.


In order to resolve the KUT solution mismatch issues and you do not need the Custom BO's created, you will have to delete the solution from Custom Object Builder. You can see the Delete Solution button in the top, which needs to be performed even there is no custom object available.
