  • SAP Cloud Applications Studio

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Deletion Patch in the SAP Cloud Applications Studio.
  2. Right click on a Custom BO.
  3. See that Check In and Check Out options are disabled (i.e. only delete available).



This is a restriction with Deletion Patches:

  1. Only fields on an XBO can be deleted
  2. Only the full custom BO can be deleted

See details from help documentation: Deletion Patch | SAP Help Portal



You would need to check your requirement and check if whole Custom Business Object Deletion is required.
