  4. Then try to select the BusinessDocumentFlow Business Object from the next dropdown, but nothing shows in the dropdown list.

  2. If the technical category is configured as Transformed object, then this Business Object will not be visible in dropdown in Partner system. 
  3. If the BO is not showing the release status and will not be available in dropdown.
