"Cannot delete XXXX since it has been used in project planning"


  • SAP Commercial Project Management (CPM)
  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud All Versions
  • SAP Fiori

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open "Manage your Solution"
  2. Go to SSCUI map resources to resource types (103299)
  3. Choose the resource type id for which the resource types need to be deleted.
  4. Select the resource ID 
  5. Click on delete button 
  6. Save


The resource IDs are been used in the customer/internal projects.


Please note that the resource id's can be deleted if they are not in use, so please delete the resource id in projects which is been used and also update the version of the project from baseline version to current version (i.e. sync the data to finance with the option present in the versions tab of the "Plan Customer Projects" application).
