2771321 - Error:' Creating data not possible; creation disabled' When Adding Employee To An Org Unit

Symptom

When adding an employee to an organizational unit, you receive an error: 'Creating data not possible; creation disabled'.

Environment

  • SAP Cloud for Customer
  • SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access the Organizational Management work center.
  2. Select the Org Structures tab.
  3. Select the respective org unit ID.
  4. Click Add in the employee section.
  5. Error Occurs: 'Creating data not possible; creation disabled'.

Cause

Only one person can work on an org unit hierarchy at the same time.

Hence, if anybody maintains any org unit in the hierarchy below the root org unit, nobody else can maintain any other org unit in this tree.

Then other users will receive the error message 'Creating data not possible; creation disabled'.

If somebody locks the hierarchy, then the org hierarchy is read-only for all others.

Resolution

This is expected system behavior. Ensure nobody else is working on the same org unit hierarchy at the same time.
