You can't create an allocation cycle in the profit center allocation context with a primary or secondary cost element account type for posting.

Within the Profit Center context in universal allocation, amounts are allocated between different profit centers. In this context, the G/L account types applicable for allocation are restricted to the following:
- N Non-operating expenses/income
- X Balance sheet accounts
The Manage Allocations app won’t allow you to use different G/L account types other than N or X for posting.
In the postings within the Profit Center context, there are no references to cost objects. Because of that, the Manage Allocations app won’t allow you to use different G/L account types besides N or X for posting. Primary and secondary cost elements (G/L account types P and S) can’t be used because they require a cost object reference. This is in accordance with the Universal Journal concept and architecture.
Within the Profit Center allocation context, you can only use the P and S G/L account types in the following scenarios:
- To determine the balance on the sender side when using the Posted Amounts sender rule in Overhead Allocation.
- To determine the basis for allocating a portion to the receiver when using the Variable Portions receiver rule.
You can't use those G/L account types in any other scenario within the Profit Center context.
