2862975 - Second level WBS element cannot be set as Billing Element

Symptom

When creating second level WBS element, indicator "Billing Element" is grayed out and we cannot set it ON.

Environment

  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open APP "Project Builder".
  2. Create a new project and first level WBS element.
  3. "Billing Element" indicator is flagged on for the first level WBS element.
  4. Create second level WBS element.
  5. "Billing Element" indicator is grayed out and cannot be edited.

Cause

The system is working as designed.

Resolution

Please read the help documentation for App "Project Builder":

As you can see under paragraph "Project with Revenue", presently, only the root node of the project can have the billing element set. The values associated with responsible cost center, company code, profit center, and functional area are identical across all objects in the project structure.
