"SP CL_XREP_PROVIDER_UICOMP failed to process file /YXXXXXX/<Path to your custom BO>/<Custom BO name>_QA.QA.uicomponent in solution $STAGING branch $DEFAULT

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Login to Cloud Applications Studio
  2. Open PDI addon by double clicking on it.
  3. Right click custom BO in Solution Explorer.
  4. Select Option 'Create Screen'
  5. Select 'Screen Scenario with Navigation'


This error happens when the BO contains one or more elements with a label containing '&' symbol. This symbol is not supported by system while generating screens for the custom BO.


Change the label by removing the '&' character. Once changed, you have to save and activate the BO.

After the BO activaiton, you will be able to generate screens without any error.
