Reproducing the Issue

  1. In Provisioning, under Succession Management
  2. Select Import/Export Data Model
  3. Select Import File > Choose File
  4. Click Submit


The setting "Enable Document Management Service (Requires Enable the Attachment Manager, Enable Generic Objects, Enable RBP)" is configured but the vendor is not specified.


The feature can only be disabled via Provisioning > Company Settings. Please reach out to your Implementation Partner or SAP Cloud Product Support team to disable the feature.

If there is no third-party cloud storage provider, disable the setting in provisioning.
