2573814 - "Go To Generated UI" Cannot Be Selected

Symptom

  • The Go To Generated UI button is greyed out in the Custom Business Objects app in production
    OR
  • The Go To Generated UI button is greyed out in the Custom Business Objects app in the QA system

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a Custom Business Object using the Custom Business Objects app in the QA environment 
  2. Select the Generate UI button before publishing the new object
  3. Add the business object to a catalog by clicking on the Maintain Catalogs button or going to the Custom Catalog Extensions app
  4. The UI is now accessible in the QA environment
  5. Transport the business object to production
  6. Now in production the business object is available in the Custom Business Objects app, but the Go To Generated UI button is greyed out

Cause

  • In QA Systems, Custom Business Objects are automatically added as extensions for the business catalog SAP_CORE_BC_EXT_TST
    • These extensions are created for convenience only and are NOT transported to production
  • The Custom Catalog Extension must be attached to a Business Catalog and published
  • The Custom Catalog Extension must also be transported to production
  • Custom Catalog Extensions cannot be added once you are in production

Resolution

  • Be sure that the Custom Catalog Extension is assigned to a Business Catalog
  • Transport the Custom Catalog Extension to production as well if the button is greyed out in production
  • Make sure you have added the business object to a catalog that your user has access to if the button is greyed out in the QA system
  • If you have already added a custom catalog extension that your user has access to, you may also need to republish the catalog extension if it is still greyed out
    1. Go to the Custom Business Objects app
    2. Select the Custom Business Object
    3. Click on Maintain Catalogs
    4. Select the catalog that you have added for the catalog extension and click Republish

    5. Once the Status shows as Published, as long as you have access to this catalog the Go To Generated UI button should no longer be greyed out
