Project Work generates duplicated line after creating Project Purchase Request.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Project Management work center.
  2. Go to the Projects view.
  3. Search and open the Project ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Project).
  4. Select the respective Project Task.
  5. Go to Work Tab.


System searches with the product of the Project Purchase Request item as service and the Service Agent of the Project Purchase Request item as team member to determine the appropriate work package of the project task.

Since the Project Purchase Request item does not have a Service Agent (you can see this by selecting the respective item in the Purchase Request and clicking on the Source of Supply), the system created a new work package with the Project Purchase Request item product as service, but without team member.


The service agent can only be entered during the manual creation of a Project Purchase Request.

In case you are using Project Purchase Request Runs to create the Project Purchase Request, we suggest to plan the work packages in the project without service agent as team member. Then the project purchase request run still creates project purchase requests without service agent, but the requested/ordered quantities are assigned to the already existing work packages and do not create new ones.

You can also propose a system enhancement in the SAP Influence Channel: or contact your implementation partner for a customized solution.
