  • You have assembled this request in the Source system.

Cause

The business role in the Source system contains a restriction for an extension field that is not available in the Target system.

Resolution

You should either:

  1. Recreate the extension field in the Target system with the exact same properties (name, data type etc.) and try to activate the Transport Request again.
  2. Modify the business role in the Source system and remove the field restriction for the extension field. You can then create a new Transport Request and send to the Target system.  After doing this, you can maintain the same configurations.
