Changes have been made for scoping element:"Sell Consignment Products" via Merge project however status is not Completed.

Activity "Activate Solution Capabilities" in the merged change project under Go-Live tab should be with status Completed.Once this activity is compeletd, object would be active.


If you did the changes through a change project, then it is always mandatory to merge the change project in order to reflect the changes into the system.

The status of the change project should be Merged (in some cases, the Activate Solution Capabilities activity must be completed after the merge, which will cause the final status to be Activated). Repetition Required activities should also be re-configured after merge.
