2816881 - Error: Creation Failed as it Exceeds the Maximum Limit of 15 for Communication Scenario Definition


The below error prevents you from creating a communication scenario in SAP Cloud Applications Studio:

  • Creation failed as it exceeds the maximum limit of 15 for Communication Scenario Definition


  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio
  • SAP Cloud for Customer
  • SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to the Studio.
  2. Open the relevant solution.
  3. Open External Webservice Integration Wizard via New Item.
  4. Define Communication Scenario and click on OK.
  5. Error pop up appears.


The number of Communication Scenario Definitions (.csd) are limited to a maximum of 15 per solution from 1811 release.


The best practice is to build one communication scenario per system and use it for the multiple services being consumed from that external system.
The system allows you to assign more services to an existing .csd content in a patch solution.
