2156284 - Link to extended collection not visible in Repository Object Browser – SAP PD 16.5


  • An Extended collection is defined in an eXtended Model Definition from an extended attribute.
  • When the model is checked in for the first time in the repository, the connection between the parent and child objects is visible: the extended collection is displayed in the Repository Object Browser.
  • Then a new parent object is created and associated to either a new child object or an existing child object.
  • When the model is updated into the repository, the parent-child connection is not visible in the Repository Object Browser for the new object.
  • Refreshing the repository or reconnecting does not make it appear.
  • The Impact and Lineage Analysis does not display any connection for the new object.
