3279865 - Language Adaptation: Text Locked After LA Transport


After transporting language adaptations some text is locked/ grayed out and can no longer be used for adaptation.


SAP Cloud for Customer


The texts are locked by another Language Adaptation. Each text can only be changed once per language. It cannot be in the same context again.


  1. Preferably: do not collect/adapt the same texts into the same target language by multiple Language Adaptations.
  2. Always use the 'Cleanup' function - this releases texts for new adaptation if they weren't used. 
  3. Creating a LA via transport is not different from creating it manually. The first LA will fetch the write locks. 
  4. Reproduce the locks that exist in the source system by considering the chronological order when transporting.
