2585707 - Custom PDI BC Set Displaying as No Data or as Empty Lines in Fine Tuning


You have created a custom Business Configuration Set (BC Set). You are unable to open them, in HTML they display as 'No Data' and in Silverlight they display as empty lines, instead of as a hyperlink to open the BC Set view.

  • Business ByDesign frontend (All versions).
  • Cloud for Travel frontend (All versions).

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Overview view. 
  3. Search for, and open, the affected BC Set.
  4. You see the BC Sets display as the images below:
  • HTML:

BCSet no data html.png


  • Silverlight:

bcSet empty lines SL.png


This 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).


  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 this .bco file.
  4. Open the .bcc file.
  5. Activate this .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.
