Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center
  2. Click on Implementation Projects
  3. Select First Implementation project
  4. Click on Open Activity List
  5. Search for Go Live
  6. Hover over the icon next to Confirm Go Live activity
  7. Note: Status of the activity is Closed.
  8. Search for Close project
  9. Hover over the icon next to Close Project activity
  10. Note: Status of the activity is Closed.


This issue is caused by inconsistent data. For example, due to a temporary deletion, Confirm Go Live and Close Project activities were incorrectly closed some time ago, or the activity Confirm Go Live were selected ahead of time.


Please open an incident so that we can perform a backend correction which will change the status of the two activities Confirm Go Live and Close Project from 3 (Closed) to 1 (Open).
