SAP Cloud for Customer

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Service work center.
  2. Select the Tickets view.
  3. Open the Ticket ABC (ABC represents the subject of the Ticket).
  4. Check the Ticket Status.
  5. A status different than Completed or Closed is being used, but the Completion Date is set.


The update of the field Completion Date is triggered by the Assignment Status Requester Action or by the Assignment Status Not Assigned.

To check if the status being used has one of these Assignment Status, please follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Go to the relevant Implementation Project.
  4. Click Open Activity List.
  5. Find and open the Fine Tuning Activity Tickets for Customer Support.
  6. Open Maintain Status Dictionary Entries.
  7. Check if the status being used has the Assignment Status as Requester Action or by the Assignment Status Not Assigned. If yes, then the behavior is correct.
