Resolving issues after changing a data type of your business object
In this video I show you the most important steps you have to do when you change a data type after the UI generation. In case you need to change the data type of an already active business object you need to do the following:
- Clean the already existing data in your database
- Update the model in the UI’s so that they work again correctly
Please note, the above steps are only possible if your solution is not yet assembled / deployed to production. In that case you cannot change a data type but must create a new field with the right data type and eventually perform a “mini migration” between those two fields.
Here you can find all videos of the new SAP Cloud Application Studio video series.
I needed to apply the above steps for this part of my video tutorial as I chose myself the wrong data type: Linking Business Objects via an “Association”.
