2625662 - Custom Change History Does Not Work

Symptom

You have enabled the Change History for a Custom Business Object you created on SAP Cloud Applications Studio and you realized it stopped working.

Environment

SAP Cloud for Customer - All its versions
SAP Business ByDesign - All its versions
SAP Cloud Applications Studio - All its versions

Reproducing the Issue

For the Custom Business Object you have created a screen. In this screen, the following scenario is reproducible:

1. Modify one of the fields you configured as relevant for the Change History
2. Save the document/screen by clicking on button Save
3. Check the Change History tab
4. You will see no change logs registered for the changes you have just done

Cause

This can happen due to miscommunication issues between SAP Cloud Applications Studio and the Backend.

Resolution

On SAP Cloud Applications Studio, take the following steps:

1. Open your Custom Solution
2. Activate the Custom Business Object responsible for this Custom Change History
3. Deploy Business Configuration of this Solution by right-clicking on the Solution name -> Deploy Business Configuration

This will resolve the miscommunication issues and the Change History may work normally afterwards.
