2532992 - Error While Migrating Projects With Status Completed


You find below options in the text help for the Migration of Projects template in the Project Status field description:

Project Status*

An identifier that defines the stage a project has reached. Enter one of the following numbers to define the status: 
'1' (for planned) '2' (for started) '3' (for released) '6' (for completed)

However, you receive below error when you use status code value as 4.

"Error detected in source record with key value 'PRXXX'                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                           Goto Correction                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  Action FINISH not possible; action is disabled"

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business configuration work center
  2. Select Overview view
  3. Search Migration of Projects activity
  4. Select Migrate Projects using Migration Tool
  5. Execute Migration step by step


It is only possible to Migrate Projects which are not yet finished. It means Projects which are in status 1, 2 or 3 can be migrated using the Migration of Projects Activity.


Currently in help text for the Project Status field shows more values than we really support in the migration template. This is a mismatch to the values we really use in projects from User Interface:

  1.  In Planning
  2.  Started
  3.  Release
  4.  Stopped
  5.  Closed
  6.  Completed

Use the options 1(Planned), 2(Started), 3(Released) in the Migration Template and re-execute. We shall rectify the help text in the template in one of the future releases.
