Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to SAP Cloud Studio.
  2. You will receive the below warning message in a pop up window.


This warning message occurs in development system, where you have 2 tenants in the same system.

In this case you would not be able to edit the solution, because these are cross clients and editing the solution in any of these tenants might results in inconsistencies in the other tenant.



In this case you should either request for the deletion of the backup tenant or delete the solution from any of the tenant. Then the solution will be in development and will allow you to make changes.
