3395176 - Why scope item 2Q2 is not activated?


You are running SAP S/4HANA Cloud with an installation before the year 2021.

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."



Reproducing the Issue

You  open Manage Your Solution app and recognize within View Solution Scope that the scope item XX_2Q2 "Data Migration to SAP S/4HANA from Staging" is not activated but instead the retired scope item XX_BH5 "Data Migration to SAP S/4HANA from File" is activated.

The image below shows an example:


You wonder why you can use the app Migrate Your Data and other data migration tools although 2Q2 is not activated.


The scope item 2Q2 "Data Migration to SAP S/4HANA from Staging" and the retired scope item BH5 are documentation-only scope items. That means that there is no configuration delivered with that scope items. They are initially build only to deliver a documentation in the beginning of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Therefore you can use the Migrate Your Data - Migration Cockpit app and other data migration related apps although it is not activated.

There is only only dependency at the moment that requires 2Q2 being activated: 

  • If you use the Remote SAP HANA Database Schema option on an SAP HANA database within SAP BTP you must have the scope item 2Q2 being activated to use the communication arrangement SAP_COM_0678

As 2Q2 is a standard scope item it is automatically activated during the initial systems activation. If you have installed your system before the year 2021 when the new scope item 2Q2 replaced scope item BH5, you will recognize that 2Q2 is not activated.

New standard scope items will not be activated automatically once they are released to host. Instead the user must activate such new standard scope items by themselves.


Let the scope item XX_2Q2 being activated in your system.
