2383986 - Shortcut of external full shortcut shows only Name/Code – SAP PD


  • The models have full external shortcuts within them, and these models are configured to show all properties of these shortcuts.
  • Some of those shortcuts are no showing their properties (like columns, keys etc.) and after some check-In/ check-out.
  • The external shortcuts lose their link to the replica object that they are based on.
  • If there are target models that are closed or detached from workspace and you try to create an internal shortcut from an existing external shortcut it will display only the name and code.
