SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

1. Go to Business Configuration workcenter and Overview

2. Find Migration of Location and Logistics Area

3. Select Migrate Location and Logistics Area using the migration tool

4. Select template ABC(where ABC is the Migration Template with customer specific data).

5. Execute Migration Step by Step > Error is faced:

Invalid status value 3 in field -LifeCycleStatus


In the Migration of Location and Logistics Area it is only possible to add new records, meaning the enhance mode is not available in the migration object.

Obsolete status is not supported by the migration tool. This is why the error is raised in the simulation step for the Life cycle status.


There is no Standard webservice which can be used for triggering this action.

The Enhance/Modification is available only for a few Migration object, the Migration of Locations is not included here. 

This is the expected system behavior.
