3099625 - Custom CDS Views: Data cannot be created since creation is disabled


While making changes on a custom CDS view (e.g. make changes on the associations), you get the following error message:

Data cannot be created since creation is disabled





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 depending objects.


If the custom CDS view that you want to edit, does have 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: You can add new fields and associations.
