3099625 - Error "Data cannot be created since creation is disabled (/BOBF/FRW_COMMON/106)" occurs, while making changes on a custom CDS view - SAP S/4HANA Cloud


While making changes on a custom CDS view (e.g. make changes on the associations), error "Data cannot be created since creation is disabled (/BOBF/FRW_COMMON/106)" occurs.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to "Custom CDS Views" app.
  2. Click on the CDS View which needs to be edited.
  3. Click on "Edit" button.
  4. Error occurs.


When a custom view is used by other objects (dependencies exist), then the custom view has to be kept stable by not allowing INCOMPATIBLE changes that can invalidate the dependent objects.


If the custom CDS view has dependencies on other objects, there are editing limitations (listed below) to ensure stability at all times. 

(The dependencies of CDS views are displayed in the top left corner. Click on the number of dependencies, to display details about the dependent objects.)

  • Associations cannot be removed or changed.
  • Fields with dependencies cannot be removed or deleted.
  • Properties of existing fields can only be changed in a compatible way.

Only compatible changes are possible: adding new fields and associations.
