Unwanted error: Maintenance planning plant xxxx not permitted


Business complained that whenever they are adding a notification to a work order, they get a pop up error “Maintenance planning plant XXXX not permitted”. At the first glance it seems some data is not maintained. But the actual issue is in the standard code.


Steps to replicate the issue

Step 1: Go to t-code IW22 -> Maintenance Notification -> Order -> Assign. (optional: if you get Status check error, make sure to change to relavant User Status, say WP Waiting Planning)

Step 2: Provide the work order number and hit the Assign icon. You will get the error.

Root Cause: Issue is in the standard function module “WCFX_WCMOBJ2ORDER_CHECK”.

Solution: Implement the SAP Note 2018347, WCM: Undesired message.

It would make the below correction in the code and you would not get the dreaded message “Maintenance planning plant xxxx not permitted”.

Have a good day.. 🙂
