You want to change the Life Cycle Status for a Custom Status for Opportunities.
SAP Sales Cloud
Reproducing the Issue
Go to the Business Configuration.
- Find the Activity Opportunities and open Custom Status.
- In an existing Custom Status, edit the Life Cycle Status.
Result: error "Change is not possible due to existing opportunity data".
The Custom Status is already used in an Opportunity.
It is the designed system behaviour that the Lifecycle Status of a Custom Status cannot be changed once it is being used in an Opportunity, to avoid inconsistencies.
