2472143 - Business Configuration Inconsistencies Due to Missing Cost Center Types

Symptom

The by SAP delivered Cost Center Types:

  • 10 Production
  • 20 Sales
  • 30 Administration
  • 40 Management
  • 50 Research & Develop.

are the basis for many country-specific Accounting Content also provided by SAP, e.g. Functional Area Determination for the country specific Accounting Principles etc.

Whenever these cost center type entries are deleted in a customer system, this can lead to issues when new country content gets delivered as for a pre-localized country or a new country is scoped in the system.

Hence, even though these by SAP delivered Cost Center Types (10 to 50) can be removed in the BC activity Cost Center Types, it is not recommended to do so.

Reproducing the Issue

When trying to access the Business Configuration, the error Some technical issues and inconsistencies have been found in your solution profile. Please find additional information below.is shown.

In the detailed information the following error details (all or just a few of them) are provided:

Foreign key error in node A1S_FIN_FUNCADETFIAC_FDCOSTCTR; field COSTCENTRETYPE; Application component: AP-ACC

Cause

The delivered Cost Center Types 10 to 50 are part of every country-specific Accounting Content provided by SAP. Removing them or just part of them will cause foreign key issues whenever new accounting content gets provided or activated for the system, e.g. when scoping a new country.

Resolution

Do not remove these delivered Cost Center Types 10 to 50. In case you do not want them to be used, rename them with e.g. "DO NOT USE" or similar so that colleagues know that they shall not be used within your company and then add your own Cost Center Types and adapt Accounting Content etc according to your wishes.

 

In case these Cost Center Types are already deleted and you can still access the Business Configuration:

Open the BC activity Cost Center Types and there use the button Restore Default:

You can select explicitly which configuration entries you want to have restored.

In case these Cost Center Types are already deleted and you cannot access the Business Configuration anymore yourself:

Please contact the Cloud Support via incident and provide us also the approval to restore the missing default values. The development support team will then restore them, and once the inconsistencies are solved you can again access the Business Configuration and name these values according to your wishes.
