2486985 - Not Able to Change the Account Assignment Type to Profit Center


You are creating a supplier invoice and is not being able to select the required Profit Center and everything is going to the Default Profit Center.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoice work center
  2. Go to Invocies and Credit Memos view
  3. Open the Invoice XXX (Invoice ID)
  4. Add the parameters
  5. Click Cost Distribution
  6. Add a GL Account

Account Assignment Type is filed automatically by the system and you cannot change it to Profit Center.


 It is the current system behavior that the profit center does not come as account assignment type.

Currently, you cannot choose the Profit Center by adding it to the Account Assignment Type field. Also you can't add it in the activity Mandatory Account Assignments as well.


There is no technical issue with the system. This is the expected system behavior.
