You have created a custom field for the Business Context Master Data: Business Partner and want to extend it to the OData Service API_BUSINESS_PARTNER. In the Custom Fields app, you are unable to find the OData Service API_BUSINESS_PARTNER in the tab OData APIs.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the app Custom Fields
  2. Open the custom field xyz
  3. Go to the tab OData APIs
  4. There are no entries in this tab
  5. Go to the tab UIs and Reports
  6. Able to see the API_BUSINESS_PARTNER – Odata extension model for Business Partner API

where xyz represents the custom field


    The service is registered as UI/Reports instead of for API.


    Currently, this service is registered as an API due to technical limitations.
