2935386 - Cannot update Functional Area in Project Builder app


Once the WBS Element has status Released, it is no longer possible to update the Functional Area field in Project Builder app


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Use Project Builder app to create a project structure
  2. Functional area field is not filled on a WBS
  3. Release WBS
  4. Now Functional Area field is greyed out and cannot be updated


Use the Project Control app and edit the WBS in Project Planning.

Within Project Planning it is possible to update the Functional Area.

Note: If Public Sector Management (PSM) is not active for the Company Code, it is not possible to edit the Functional Area once it has status Released, Closed, Technically Completed or Locked.
