Reproducing the Issue

  1. Navigate to Installed Base work center.
  2. Click on New.
  3. Add all details.
  4. Click Save or Save and Open.
  5. See the Installed Base get's created with status In Preparation. You would like to change this, so it get's created with status Active.


At the moment, the installed Base will be created by default with the status set as In Preparation, since in case mistakes are done during the creation, it is still possible to delete the same.

This also avoids other system dependencies inconsistencies. This cannot be changed even with use of Workflow Rules.


This is the system designed behavior.
