Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration workcenter
  2. Select Implementation Projects
  3. Select Edit Project Scope
  4. Navigate to 3rd Step Scoping
  5. Select Human Resources and expand

You can't deselect as the check boxes are greyed out.



Human resource Module comprises of Personal Administration, Time and Labor Management, Compensation, Payroll.
You can choose to scope only Personal Administration out of entire HCM.

System can be de-scoped so as to reduce the HR scope to only Personnel Administration provided the system is not Live
and Application/Transactional Data (Time administration(TLM)/ Compensation(CMP)/ PAYROLL) is not created into the system for the other three options TLM/CMP/PAYROLL.


This is expected system behavior, You can't deselect if the system has gone Live or Transactional data related to TLM/CMP/PAYROLL has been created in the system.
