Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration
  2. Go to Upload Code List
  3. Select the Upload Code List link
  4. Select the relevant Code List Mapping group 
  5. Select Upload and upload your file
  6. The message 'Run to Create Code List and Mappings is started. Please check Run logs' appears
  7. But when selecting the Application Log, there is no Application Log ID or further information


The issue might be caused by the logon language of the affected user.

The Upload Code List job fails, since the logon language of the user is  not installed in the system


  • The logon language of a user is DE, and DE (German) as logon language is not installed in the system. This user will not be able to upload the code list.
  • the logon language of another user is EN, and EN (English) as logon language is installed in the system. This user will be able to upload the code list.


Change the user's language to one of the installed languages in the system to avoid further failures.
