Validity of Phase Control Codes

ValidityConsequence
ValidA valid phase control code can be used without any restrictions.
DeprecatedA deprecated phase control code is still displayed in the value help and can still be activated and deactivated. If the user selects this phase control code and wants to activate it, the system issues a warning message.
No longer valid

A phase control code that is no longer valid cannot be activated. This means that the user cannot select invalid phase control codes from the value help in any apps that allow the activation of phase control codes (for example, in the Change Maintenance Order app). However, an invalid phase control code can still be deactivated.​

Note that invalid phase control codes can be selected from the value help and displayed in apps that provide a list view. This allows you to use invalid phase control codes as a search and filter criterion.
