Symptom

How to import Extension Fields also known as  Z-Fields using OData Services

Reproducing the Issue

  • Select the button Adapt to enter Adaptation Mode.
  • Select Edit Master Layout option.
  • Select a Field and Change Properties
  • Maintain the Fields Definition
  • Choose tab: OData Services and activate the Fields

 

Cause

There are no Extension Fields available in the "c4cdataworkbench" service, hence not available in the file.

c4cdataworkbench was a 'Mega' Services which has been split into Business Object specific Service, of which Opportunity and Lead for example are released.

 

Resolution

 You have to look for Service for the respective Business Object in place of c4cdataworkbench (activate field c4cdataworkbench) and this is the case for all OData Services from Contracts to Customers.

Every Extended Fields have to be added to the respective Business Object from Customers to Contracts. For example in case of Opportunity Extension Fields it Needs to be added in Opportunity Service.
