Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Select the Purchase Orders view.
  3. Select New Purchase Order from the Common Tasks.
  4. Enter the needed data.
  5. Click Order.
  6. Open the Purchase Order ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Purchase Order created).
  7. Navigate to the Document Flow tab. 

Sales Order XYZ is created, but remain In Preparation. (XYZ represents the ID of the Sales Order).


The Project Based Sales Order is not released automatically, since the system is not able to create a Project to the scenario.
This happens because the Organization Unit being used in the scenario is not marked a viable/valid Cost Center.


This is the system expected behavior for Project based items (Entitlement and Service Project).

Please mark the Organization Unit as a Cost Center under the Org Structure view, in the Organizational Management work center.
