2904625 - Global Data Type Fields Not Supported In PDI

Symptom

You created a new extension field of Global Data Type (GDT) using Key User Tools (KUT). Under GDT we have the following subtypes which can be used:

  • CountryCode
  • CurrencyCode
  • IntegerValue
  • MeasureUnitCode
  • Percent
  • LanguageCode
  • PhoneNumber

However when trying to use the new field on your PDI solution you're not able to as it doesn't show up in the references to Customer-Specific Fields file (.REF) in the Cloud Applications Studio.

Environment

SAP Cloud For Customer

Cause

GDT fields are not supported to be used in partner developed solutions.

Resolution

This is the standard behavior of the system.

An alternative option may be to check the SAP Customer Influencer Site to submit an idea.
