Project not created automatically after creation and save of Portfolio item

Hi All,

we are in the process of building PPM 6.0 system wherein we are facing the issue. By standard when Portfolio item is created project should be created automatically. However in our case even after creation and save of portfolio item project is not getting created. Although Portfolio item gets created but associated project is not getting created.

Can anybody guide us on this...

Thanks,

Sudhir Kesarkar

    Hi Sudhir,

    Can you confirm that you have:

    1. Activated the relevant switches under 'Override Default Global Settings',

    2. Maintained your Portfolio Item types with the correct configuration

    3. Maintained the mappings between your Item type/template and PS template/s?

    4. Maintained the Object Link Types correctly ?

    Please take a look at the above areas and let me know of particular areas should you have any questions. We can then take it down to more detail

    Regards

    C

      Hi Chatsworth,

      Can you suggest the correct Object link type. I suspect I may be wrong in configuring Object links type.

      Thanks,

    Hi Sergey,

    I am working on PPM 6.0 and I am talking about project creation in both SAP PS as well as at the portal.

    Hi Sudhir,

    Configuring PS project creation directly from item is required when creating only PS Project but not cProjects Project. In your case, you need both. So, do the following.

    1. Do all the configurations such that cProjects Project is created from the Portfolio Items.

    2. Define a Project profile 'CPR0001' in SAP PS.

    3. Do all the configurations such that PS Project is created automatically from cProjects Project (like Activating account integration at cProjects Project type etc.)

    Automatic creation of PS projects will happen with Project profile 'CPR0001'. However, 'CPR0001' is not delivered in the standard system. We need to create it.

    Rgds, Manjunadh.

    • Hi Sudhir,

      The error 'An error occurred while connecting to accounting system' will appear while PS Project is being created. This error can be resolved using the transaction 'COCPCPR' in the backend.
