3226722 - Extension Field Does not Appear in Adaptation Mode


When trying to change or add an extension field to a certain screen, the field is not available in adaptation mode.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enter the screen where the field needs to be operated.
  2. Click the avatar icon on the top right of the system and click Key User Settings -> Start Adaptation Mode.
  3. Right click the section of the screen where the field needs to be added, or right click the field that needs to be changed.
  4. Click "+ Extension Fields".

A list will appear with the extension fields, however the desired field does not appear. 


The extension field was created as part of a PDI solution, instead of being created through Key User Tools.


The system works as expected. In these cases the extension field needs to be operated directly through the custom solution.
