The tenant is an old configuration Change Test Tenant with a Change Project that is not working anymore, because the logical connection to the Production tenant is already cut off.

This connection is required in the current state of the tenant.


You may choose one of the below Options:

Option 1:
You can create a new Change Project in Production and use Copy Solution Profile to copy it to this tenant. This will overwrite the current configuration in the tenant and re-establish a logical connection.

If your choice is Option 1, then you can trigger it yourself.


Option 2:
To allow configuration changes in this tenant, it needs to be repaired. We will turn this tenant into a normal Test tenant with the current configuration. This will prevent the tenant from being used as BC Change Test tenant in future, but the configuration can be changed at will.

If Option 2 is required, you may report an incident to SAP for us make the necessary changes in the tenant and remove the logical connection to the Production tenant. Thereafter, the Business Configuration will open as in non-BC test tenants.
