Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Cloud Application Studio
  2. Open Respective Solution 
  3. Go to Implementation Manager
  4. Click on Activate  
  5. Above error pops up


The metadata of KUT fields are different from the source tenant and the Target KUT fields. As these KUT fields are being used in the ABSL script, hence the activation of solution is failing in Scripting Language Implementation.


To update the metadata in the target tenant,you have to use an unified transport managment for KUT fields.

It could be the cause where the KUT fields which are already created in the target system are not updated during activation of the .ref file and the query has not been updated by the respective services.
