The cause for the issue could be that y you are trying to close the change project without Implementing it.


Before closing the project, you must implement it by either completing the Confirm Go-Live activity (in case of a first implementation project) or the Merge Changes activity (in case of a change project), which can only be completed after all other activities in the project are closed. If it is a change project and you would like to close it without implementing the changes, you can cancel it.

If the Confirm Go-Live or Close Project activity is already closed, then please report an case.
