The Custom Business Configurations app serves as an entry point to the configuration objects provided by different applications or partners. You can use the app to adjust these configuration objects to change and influence the system behavior.

The required business catalog is contained in business role template SAP_BR_BPC_EXPERT (Configuration Expert - Business Process Configuration). Ensure the user responsible for maintaining the error codes has this role assigned.

Hint: The trial user in SAP BTP ABAP trial system already has the required catalog.

  • Step 1
    1. Start the SAP Build Work Zone. You can start the SAP Build Work Zone from ADT if you right-click on your ABAP system in the project explorer and select Properties, select ABAP Development and click on the system URL.

    2. Logon with the user responsible for maintaining the error codes.

    3. Select Custom Business Configurations tile.

      Start Custom Business Configurations app
    4. Select your business configuration.
