1943618 - Error Message: Enable The administration mode For The Solution.

Symptom


You are trying to edit /Change the form template and the error message is displayed : Enable The administration mode For The Solution.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Application and User Management Work Center.
  2. Go to Form Template Maintenance view.
  3. Find the Template.
  4. Edit the desired template.


when you try to edit the template the error message will be displayed.

Cause

The User you are using to edit the template  is a developer user.

Resolution

To solve the issue you have two options :

1. Add-on solution adaptation.

Adaptation is a key user activity which can become part of an add-on
solution when the user is an SDK user. However, you have to switch on
the user within SAP Business ByDesign Studio. You will find this option
in the SAP Business ByDesign Studio under the menu path:
 -Go to Administration.
 -Switch on/off Admin mode in SAP Solution.
 -If you switch on the Admin mode for your SDK user, the error message
'Logon user is not the key user enabled for the solution' will no longer
appear and the adaptation can be done (and will become part of the
add-on solution).
Unable to click on the option "Switch on/off Admin mode in SAP Solution
or not active because the user is defined as a developer for the SAP
Business ByDesign Studio, but it is not assigned the Key User Mode.
Either use another user which is not a developer and it should have key
user mode for the Studio or assign the Key User Mode to this user in the
Studio (in the context menu of the solution node).

2. Regular adaptation

If you want to do a regular adaptation (without recording it in an
add-on solution), then you have to use a user which is not enabled for
the SDK (which does not have the work center Partner development
assigned but the Application and User Management should be assigned), if
you login as a key User the error message 'Logon user is not the key
user enabled for the solution' will no longer appear and the local
adaptation can be done in the tenant. We recommended to use dedicated
service agents for partner development activities and not to mix partner
development and key user activities with one user.
