Cause

Resolution

In the SAP S/4HANA system, cloud starter edition or sales demo partner, extensibility for key users is deactivated by default.

Extensibility for key users can be activated.

However, extension items that are created in this S/4HANA system cannot be transported into other systems. Extension items that were created in this SAP S/4HANA system get lost as soon as system is decommissioned.

You can activate extensibility by yourself. Open the Fiori application "Extensibility Settings" and follow the activation process.
