2926215 - Custom Codelist Translations are not updated


You maintain new translations for a Custom Codelist in the SAP Cloud Applications Studio and find that after assembling and deploying the solution in the target tenant the translations for the Codelist are not updated correctly.


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

Reproducing the Issue


  • You have created either a Codelist or a Business Configuration Object and a Business Configuration Set
  • You have maintained translations for the Codelist
  • In a new patch solution you have changed the translations for the codelist without changing the codelist values


The translations are not considered during the activation of the solution thus the changes made to the Codelist are not activated in the target tenant.


  1. Create a new Patch Solution
  2. Make a dummy change to the actual Codelist by changing the Value or the Description.
  3. Save & Activate the Codelist 
  4. Revert the dummy change made to the Codelist
  5. Save & Activate the Codelist 
  6. Assemble and Download the solution
  7. Deploy the downloaded solution to the target tenant

The above steps will ensure that the codelist will be considered for activation during the deployment in the target tenant.

This will then result in updating the runtime codelist values and translations.
