For all ‘Available Migration Objects’, check SAP Help at:

Known problem & solution
The SAP S/4HANA Data Migration content (migration templates and predefined mapping rules) is based on the pre-configured SAP S/4HANA Cloud business processes.
Therefore, it might comes to bottlenecks when using the transaction LTMC / LTMOM in On-Premise systems, as the Cloud product is a newly developed solution and not a copy of the On-Premise functions.
For more details read following KBAs:
- 2515151 – SAP S/4HANA Migration Cockpit: Migration objects or fields which you want to migrate cannot be found
- 2683477 – Why are fields on screens not available in the migration content? (SAP S/4HANA Migration Cockpit)
In specific circumstances there is the possibility to extend the pre-delivered migration templates with LTMOM, see KBA:
2576565 – SAP S/4HANA Data Migration – On Premise
However, the modified object falls outside of the scope of SAP Support. See also SAP Note:
2481235 – SAP S/4HANA Migration Cockpit (on premise) – restrictions and extensibility of pre-delivered migration objects
