2605264 - Unable to Extend Account Hierarchy Business Object


You have the requirement to add extension fields to the Account Hierarchy OWL and TI, however when you try to add the same using the SDK or the Account Hierarchy OWL and TI, you don't find any way to do so.


  • SAP Cloud For Customer
  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the SDK.      
  2. Go to the Account Hierarchy business object.

There is no possibility to add any extension field.

The button Add Extension Field is not present in UI Designer.

When you try to add KUT fields from Accounts Hierarchy OWL and TI, you don't find any fields available for selection.


The Business Partner Hierarchy business object is not extendible. That is the reason you do not see this option while trying to extend a field using PDI or KUT.


Extending the Business Partner Hierarchy business object is not supported. If your company requires change to this behaviour, you can post this new request on our influencer page (please go to 'Help' at the top of the screen and choose 'Make SAP Cloud for Customer Better' /

Please note that it is not possible for our Support Team to provide you additional information regarding the availability of this feature in a future release.
