Can't delete OData service from "/n/iwfnd/maint_service"

This is a custom OData gateway service that I imported from a transport from a different system.

If I go to /n/iwfnd/maint_service and try to delete the service it says:

Service cannot be deleted, delete ICF Node first

If I try to delete the ICF Node I get:

ICF node 'ZAPMEXTERNALDATA' could not be deleted.
Reason: 'Node is not in original system'


  • Here's how I got it resolved.

    To delete the service:

    1. Goto TCODE: SE03

    2. Choose IWSG and IWOM with “ZAPM*” as shown below. ( the start of the name of your service ) You can see in the image below that they are "SAP Gateway: Service" and "SAP Gateway: Model M..."

    1. Click execute.

    2. For each of the two object directory entries change them to the current system that you are in and save. In this example, I am in RS9 and want to delete the service.

    3. After this you should be able to delete the service from /n/iwfnd/maint_service
