In the source system, the logon language of PDI Development user: ABC has Non-English lanuage. Then, patch solution was activated and then assembled. Due to this, ABSLI corresponding to an ABSL script was incorrectly generated in the backend with an additional attribute:'SIGNATURE' in Non-English language. Non-English logon language made the ABSLI inconsistent.


In the source system:

    1.Change the logon language of your PDI Development user: ABC from Non-English lanauage to English.

  • Go to Application and User Mangement Work Center/Administrartor Work Center
  • Go to Business user View
  • Edit Atribute for user ABC
  • Change the lanuage to English

    2.Right Click ABSL://YPQR_/……/XYZ.absl -> Select option 'Clean Up'. On clean up,ABSLI will be deleted successfully.

    3.Re-activate ABSL script

    4.Similar steps should be performed to correct other affected ABSLI file(s).

In Target system:

    1.Upload the solution again
