    These materials need to be deployed when the above relevant Scope Items are in scope as they are part of the configurations to run the business process. There is no possibility to deselect the Scope Items and no possibility to remove or archive the pre-delivered materials.

    In addition, please do not change the default settings of the material master in the system via corresponding Self-Service Configuration UIs before the activation of Professional Services materials has been done in the Quality system (2SL) or Development system (3SL) and transported to the Production system (2SL) or Test and Production system (3SL) successfully.Any change would prevent the system from creating SAP pre-defined materials. Once the transportation process is done, the default settings can be fine-tuned as needed.

    For details, please see 2992729 - Activation and Transportation error of SERV/MAT materials due to fine-tuned settings - SAP for Me.

    Resolution

    The system works as designed. There is no possibility to deselect the Scope Items and no possibility to remove or archive the pre-delivered materials.
