Purpose

The following WIKI page is designed to explain most of the known issues related to App Variants specific and be able to know how to resolve most known issues

Overview

In this WIKI you will find all the steps needed in order to troubleshoot or fix a known App Variants issues..

Option 'Adapt UI' Inactive

  • Symptom
    You have created an app variant but when you want to change it again the option 'Adapt UI' is inactive.

  • Reason
    Looking at the http trace of your browser select request /sap/bc/lrep/app_variant_overview/. When you open the response look for the status of the app variant. This is field 'appVarStatus'. If the status is 'U', which stands for unpublished, it means that for some reason the corresponding custom catalog extension was not created during the creation of your app variant.

  • Solution
    1. Go to the app variant overview, select your app variant and chose option Actions → Copy Id
    2. Now return to the home page of Fiori Launchpad and navigate to group 'Extensibility'.
    3. Select app 'Custom Catalog Extensions' and paste the app variant id into the search field. Press the 'Go' button.
    4. This will show your app variant. Observe that no catalogs are assigned to the variant.
    5. Now click the 'Add' button and select one or more catalogs. Press 'OK'.
    6. Press the 'Publish' button and wait until the process is completed. Depending on your system load this might take a few minutes.
    7. Option 'Adapt UI' is active again.

Consistency Check of Software Collection Fails

You have created an app variant and want to export it. 

  • Symptom
    1. Pressing the 'Check' or 'Export' button in software collection <YY1_xyz> produces one or more of the following errors:
      Item YY1_<obj1> of type Custom Catalog Extension depends on object YY1_<obj2>_FLAV of type SIA6
    2. Pressing the 'Add item' button in software collection <YY1_xyz> and specifying the app variant id in the search field (or specifying type 'UI Flexibility Variants and Changes') does not return a hit.
    3. Pressing the 'Add missing items' button in software collection <YY1_xyz> and specifying the app variant id in the search field (or specifying type 'UI Flexibility Variants and Changes') does not return a hit.

  • Reason
    In S/4 Hana Cloud when you create an app variant an IAM app is also created which points to the app variant. Technically the IAM app is stored under name YY1_<obj2>_FLAV.  When assigning an app variant to a catalog, a catalog extension is created under name YY1_<obj1>. The catalog extension, however, points to the IAM app but it this case it does not exist.

  • Solution
    1. Navigate to the app variant, click on 'Adapt UI' and press button 'Publish'. This will create the IAM app. 
    2. Go back to the software collection (group 'Transport Management', tile  'Export Sofware Collection')  and press button 'Add items'.
    3. Select the IAM app YY1_<obj2>_FLAV and recheck. The error shoud be gone.
    4. Press 'Export' button.
