2231755 - Business Function(s) deactivated (switched off) after activation in SFW5


You are activating Business Function(s) using transaction SFW5 as per SAP Note 1641394 - How-to activate Business Function in Switch Framework (SFW5).

After hitting "Activate Changes" button, you get a screen, informing you that one/some business function(s) is/are to be de-activated (switched off), which is not what you want.

You just want to activate some business functions, you do not intent to de-activate any already-activated business functions.


For example, you want to activate Business Function /IBS/EAFS_RBD_BUSOPR and /IBS/EAFS_RBD_BUSORP5. You select "Planned Status" for them, then click "Activate Changes" button.

you get the screen below:


Business Function /IBS/EAFS_RBD_BUSOPR and /IBS/EAFS_RBD_BUSORP5 are to be activated, but Business Function /IPRO/FND_DOCB_FILLINS is to be deactivated (switched off).


You are wondering, "I do not want Business Function /IPRO/FND_DOCB_FILLINS to be de-activated, why is it to be de-activated? What was wrong?"


Generally in such cases, you should choose "Cancel", and check whether it is really necessary to de-activate business function /IPRO/FND_DOCB_FILLINS.

But if you continue with clicking "Activate Changes", after that via SFW5 -> Goto -> History, you will find that business function /IPRO/FND_DOCB_FILLINS was deactivated together with the activation of /IBS/EAFS_RBD_BUSOPR and /IBS/EAFS_RBD_BUSORP5.
