You want to know why Purchase request is still in status 'Not released' status though Purchase order is also created from it and every thing is working fine.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Project management work center
  2. Go to Projects view
  3. Open the respective project
  4. Go to Products tab
  5. Go to Purchase Request sub tab
  6. Select the respective Purchase request


The Release Status in the Purchase Request sub tab of the Project is only relevant, if the purchase request was created from the project (technically, an internal Project Purchase Request).

The Purchase request in your case was created from a Shopping Cart with the cost assignment to a project task (technically, an external Project Purchase Request).

So Ideally, the Release Status should be "not relevant" in case of an external PPR, but that was never implemented.


So you can ignore the status for such Purchase requests.
