Validation to restrict creation of wbs upto 4th level

In any SAP PS Project usually we get requirement related to Validations. So i am describing one of my Experience where Business does not want to create WBS beyond 4th Level.

Document describes How to create validation to prohibited Max WBS level code is 4 in project structure.

if client have kind of requirement like system prohibited to create <=4 level wbs in project.

hope this will help directly if any one get same requirement. generally this kind of requirement consultant face always

Validation: You can check values and combinations of values as they are being entered in the SAP environment. Validation rules are stored in the Rule Manager; as data is entered, the Integration Manager validates the data against the validation rules stored in the Rule Manage.

      Hi Sanjeev,

      To restrict WBS element upto 4th level why we need validation, we can restrict it by coding mask only.

      we will create Coding mask for upto 4th level only For Ex. A-XXXX.XXXX.XXXX.XXXX..

      In this case my root level is same as project definition.

      Coding Mask is just a guideline for numbering. It does not restrict the level at which the WBS is created. It only restricts the numbering. As an example, you can create a Level 5 WBS and number it "C.123456.05" and it will be accepted as long as it fits within the coding mask of "C.xxxxxx.xx.xx.xx". Makes sense? I still do not know if we can use Validation as a method for restricting the number of levels.
