3095959 - Save rejected by validation


The below error message prevents a document from being saved on Cloud for Customer and Business ByDesign solutions:

Save rejected by validation (Solution YABCEFGY_, Business Object ABC, Node XYZ) (where YABCEFGY_ represents an add-on; ABC represents the BO name and XZY the node name)


  • SAP Cloud for Customer
  • SAP Business ByDesign 

Reproducing the Issue

  • Open any work center and view.
  • Select any document ID.
  • Edit the document.
  • Click on Save button. 


The error happens due to the add-on solution mentioned on the error message.

On this add-on, there is a Validation-OnSave ABSL script created for the Business Object and Node stated on the error.

If this validation script rejects the save and no message is raised from the script coding, the system generic message is shown instead.


The partner responsible for the add-on has to enhance the code logic from the Validation-OnSave script by raising a meaningful error message in case the save is rejected, so the user knows why the document cannot be saved.
