Cause

These migration objects only support external number ranges.

This is mention in the online help.sap.com documentation at 'QM - Inspection method' and 'QM - Master inspection characteristic'

SAP provides  pre-defined fixed internal number ranges  for Master Inspection Characteristics and Inspection Methods

Using internal number assignment for these  Migration Object could lead to the number range to be exhausted and result in dumps to occur when trying to create Master Inspection Characteristics and Inspection Methods manual

There currently is no SSCUI or Expert Configuration available to Extend the internal number range.

Development are aware of the issue and are planning on introducing an SSCUI for Number Ranges in a Future Quarterly Release . This is subject to change and may be changed by SAP at any time for any reason without notice.

Resolution

Please use External Number Assignment

If there is already objects with internal numbers  , please use external numbers with prefix like “C” or “Z” in the Migration Template.
