3207661 - Edit Button Missing For A Particular Workcenter View List For All Users


You are unable to make mass changes to an Object Work List (OWL) because the edit button is missing.


SAP Cloud For Customer

Reproducing the Issue


  1. Open Sales Workcenter.
  2. Open Sales Quotes View.
  3. Here you notice that the Pencil Icon for editing is missing for the list.


This button can be missing for some users due to access restrictions. However, if it is missing for all users including key users, It is likely a key user change was made to hide this button.


  1. Go to Administrator WC.
  2. Go to General Settings.
  3. Layout Change History(Under Adaptation Changes).
  4. Click File Path Header.
  5. In the Filter, type  "allowmassedit" and enter.

Here you will get results if any change has been made. It will start with /SAP_BYD_UI_FLEX/CHANGE_TRANSACTIONS/KeyUser/AddPostCondition/AllowMassEdit

You can double check the UI component column to ensure that it is the same screen. In my example above, it would be Sales Quotes so it would show:/BYD_COD/SalesOnDemand/Quote/COD_Quote_OWL.OWL.uicomponent

Open up the relevant Change Transaction by clicking on the link. If it says Changed Property = AllowMassEdit and New Property Value = false, you can go ahead and delete this CT in order to resolve your issue.
