    Problem – Activation Not Appearing

    When creating your process chain you may encounter an informational message that claims “No variant exists to activate your DSO”.  I don’t see an easy way to manually add the variant of activation to ZBREW_01. We’ll need to create a new custom variant that takes care of this for us.  Here’s what your screen may look like:


    You’ll need to click on the blank paper icon and create a brand new activation step (given it’s a fresh install). That should allow you to move forward. This will allow you to create a new process variant (ex. zactivatedso) that contains the data store activation job. Within the process variant, you should be able to specify the DSO name.

    Hello Rob,


    Very nice course with details. I used your material with e-books espresso, and I deeply recommend the course. However, the missing part that is actually needed most sought is that end-to-end process from ECC to BW. Please if you have that elsewhere, it will be a completion for the course.


    Best Regards
