3027679 - Data Change made by Custom UI Action not Saved


You have bound a Custom Action as a button on a UI Screen responsible for changing data. The value changes in the UI when triggering the action but on Save, nothing happens or you receive the below warning:

"No changes detected, save not executed"


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

Reproducing the Issue


  • You have created a Custom Solution.
  • You have created a Custom Action on a Business Object or Extension Business Object.
  • You have bound this Custom Action to a Button in the UI Designer.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Log into the UI.
  2. Open the relevant UI Screen.
  3. Click the Button bound to the Custom Action.
  4. Click Save.


You have not selected Relevant for Work Protect in the created Event Handler. The Event Handler can be viewed in the Controller tab in the UI Designer.


  • For a Custom Screen, you can select Relevant for Work Protect in the Event Handler directly.
  • For a Standard Screen, you need to rebind the Custom Action via the Extensibility Explorer making sure Relevant for Work Protect is selected.
