2194540 - Unable to Close a First Implementation Project in Test System

Symptom

You have a First Implementation Project in a Test System, through which a Productive System was created. Now, you wants to close this First Implementation Project in Test System. But there, is no Close Project button and Close Project activity.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center
  2. Select Implementation Projects view

Resolution

This is a expected system behavior that the last status is Tested for a First Implementation Project in the Test System.

The prerequisite to perform the Close activity in a First Implementation project is to perform the Go Live activity. So we decided to remove the Close activity in the case that the First Implementation project is in a test tenant.

The further details are as follows,

It is very important to know how you wants to use this test tenant in the future. If you wants to use the test tenant as standalone test tenant without connection to the production tenant it makes no sense to close the First Implementation project because after closing the project it is not further possible to make any Business Configuration changes in this test tenant as the First Implementation project has the status Not Live and therefore it is not possible to create change projects.

The First Implementation has to remain open for immediate changes or scoping/FT changes in the project. For this, you have to reset the status "TESTED". This is possible for you via the activity list.

If you wants to use the test tenant for remote change projects coming from the production system we should close the First Implementation project because then it is not further used as main workspace. Instead the remote change project is used in the test tenant as main workspace.
