Restrict task creation below project definition

Hello friends,

In my project we have automated creation of PS project through PPM Operation project once we create the project.

Now creating Task just below project definition creates WBS in PS project, we are not able to delete this as by this time it is already transferred.

My questions are

How we can restrict the user to create task just below Project definition in PPM Operational project?

Would also like to restrict the user to create the Phase manually as this copied directly from template?

Thanks in advance

Kailas

    Hi Kailas,

    Please check the configuration node SAP Portfolio and Project Management > Project Management > Structure > Define Project Type, where the Tsks/Chkl.f.ProjDef might be checked for your project type.

    Please try with not ticked.

    Regards,

    Anil

    Thanks Anil,

    The mentioned configuration is for not to add any task in the project, however my requirement is to restrict the user to create the task just below project definition. They can very well create the task under phase. Let me know in case you have any further inputs.

    Regards

      Hi,

      Thanks for the input. Actually I don't want to restrict the task creation under any phase. This configuration will restrict the user to create the task in the project.

      What I am looking for is restricting the user for not able to create the task under project definition, he should be able to create the task under any phase though.

    Hello Kailas,

    Restriction of users or project managers from creating task under project definition can be controlled at the project type configuration as mentioned by Anil, where you have to just untick the checkbox 'Tasks/checklist for Proj Definition'. But this would restrict 'checklist' creation under project definition as well. The other checkbox in configuration is available for tasks to be created under phases.

    To answer your second question on restricting phase creation manually, would like to understand why you would like to restrict project managers in creating phases other than ones in the project template. There could be possibility in many situation for many projects that they would like to add few tasks under a different phase other than the ones in template. How will you address those scenarios?

    Still if you want to restrict, there are no standard ways in restricting those actions other than doing an development by hiding those buttons of 'Create Phase' on various screens with 'Project type' as one of the input condition. But I do not recommend this as this would go out of standard & involves extra efforts during upgrades.

    Regards,
