However, when extending the work package via API /CPD/SC_PROJ_ENGMT_CREATE_UPD_SRV, it will always update with "Retain Total Efforts and Quantities" by default.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud 

Reproducing the Issue

Call API /CPD/SC_PROJ_ENGMT_CREATE_UPD_SRV/WorkPackageSet to update the duration of Work Package.

Cause

Currently, there is no option to use "Retain Efforts and Quantities for Common Months" in the API.

Resolution

You may submit a feature request following KBA 2716534.
As a workaround, before updating the duration, using entity "Resource Demand Distribution" to retrieve the distribution data for common months first.
After extending the duration , using the retrieved data to update the distribution data back to before.
