On a multi-currency enabled system, when the idea financial currency and billing currency differ, the Convert Idea to Project fails if this has got a Benefit Plan.


  1. Set a multi-currency enabled system
  2. Entity home currency is set A (let say USD currency)
  3. Activate a different currency (let say EUR currency)
  4. Create an idea and financially enable it. Home currency here is USD
  5. Set its billing currency to EUR
  6. Create a Benefit Plan and populate it with some benefit figures
  7. Convert the Idea to a Project

Expected Results: Idea is successfully converted to a project
Actual results: You get an error: API-1019 : Could not process the request due to internal error

app-ca.log file contains following entries:
