Case 1:

This issue is due to an inconsistency between the BAC (Business Adaptation Catalogue) element and the BCO (Business Configuration Object).


You didn't maintain a QA View (BC View) for one or more BCO (Business Configuration Object).

Case 2:

You have existing BCCs that are still marked "Values can be added in Fine Tuning" but purposely have not created/deleted a QA View (BC View).


Case 1:

  1. Check if the affected .bco file has a QA View (BC View) linked. If not, create the QA View (BC View).
  2. Open the affected .bco file.
  3. Activate the .bco file.
  4. Open the .bcc file.
  5. Activate the .bcc file.
  6. Repeat for all .bac and .bcc files that are missing in the fine tuning.
  7. Open the .bac file, hit Next > Next > Next > Finish.
  8. Activate the .bac file.
  9. Right click the affected solution name.
  10. Deploy Business Configuration on Solution level.

Case 2:

  1. Unscope the Solution in the UI
  2. Open the Solution in the SDK
  3. Open the relevant "No Data" .bcc
  4. In field values
  5. Untick everything that can be unticked
  6. Save and activate the .bcc
  7. Check in the .bcc
  8. Do the same for all the relevant files
  9. Open the .bac file, hit Next > Next > Next > Finish.
  10. Activate the .bac file
  11. Deploy Business Configuration on Solution level
  12. Re-scope the Solution in the UI
