You want to migrate contracts into system with different status, but in the migration template, you cannot find a field to put the status.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Business Configuration work center.
- Go to the Overview view.
- Search and find activity Prepare for Data Migration.
- Click Download Templates, then download the template Open Customer Contracts.
You find there is no field to put the contract status.
SAP Business ByDesign system does not support importing status, the functionality is only for Open Customer Contracts, hence when a contract is migrated, it will be created with status In Preparation always.
You have to release the contract manually in the system.
