  • You have a 3-System Landscape and you're using a Development System
  • You're trying to create a Business User but there are no Employees to choose 


SAP S/4HANA Cloud (3-System Landscape)

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to "Maintain Business Users" app
  2. Click on "New"
  3. No employees available to choose, the pop-up view is showing "No data" message


You have not created Employees with the Manage Workforce app.

If you have not completed the required steps in the Onboarding guide, the application will not be available because you will not have the necessary scope items activated. 


Please, use the Manage Workforce app to create your employees.

If you have not completed the required steps in the Onboarding guide and the app is not available in your system, you need to complete the prerequisites described in the documentation SAP Help Portal | Development System - Steps for the Initial Admin User in your SAP S/4HANA Cloud Development System.

After you complete these prerequisites steps, the scope items will be activated and you'll be able to create new Employees and after that, to create new Business Users.

If you have any concern about the Employee Creation, you can check the "Creating a worker with a business user" section of the documentation,
