Reproducing the Issue

  2. Open PDI Solution
  3. Open UI Designer
  4. Open the standard ui component
  5. Go to extensibility explorer 
  6. Select "Assign Component to View"
  7. Select Navigation Target
  8. Your Modal Dialog is missing 


Modal dialog can't be OBN navigation based. It has to be simple navigation. There should be a simple navigation given where inscreen flow happens. As it is a reusable component that is why it will not be part of assigned objects.


This is the system standard behaviour.
