3406398 - Unable to add a section in the UI Adaptation mode

Symptom

You are not able to add a new blank section in Adapt UI of an application.

OR

You are not able to add a new section in the Adapt UI of an application because the "Add: Section" button is greyed out.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Start the application
  2. Click on "Adapt UI"
  3. Click on the tab where you want to add the section

Cause

In UI Adaptation there are only two ways to add new sections to the layout: adding predefined Sections that are available depending on the application or using the action 'Embed Content: as Section' (this can be used to embed other websites into a section). 

Resolution

If the "Add: Section" button is greyed out, this means that there are no predefined sections for this application.

Also, it is currently not possible to add a blank section and then filling it with content like Custom Fields.
