3467429 - WBS element ID is not auto generated in Project Planning App

Symptom

While creating new WBS element in App Project Planning the WBS element ID is not getting auto generated.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open App Project Planning.
  2. Select the Project/Wbs Element and Click on Create.
  3. WBS element ID is empty.

Cause

The coding mask value is maintained in such a way that there is No scope to create next ID.
Whenever a Child/WBS element is created in a project, to get the ID auto filled or for next ID generation it checks whether there is any further scope to create the next ID using it's parent name.
For Example : If a project is created with A/XX/00/00/00/00 coding mask, then project ID will be created as A/XX because after A/XX there is "/" separator and
the WBS ID will be created as A/XX/00 and it's child as A/XX/00/00 and so on. In this case 4 children can be created using this project ID

Resolution

Maintain the coding mask pattern properly for the project.
