2804870 - More than 999 line items posting is supported in Journal Entry Posting API

Symptom

As of S/4HANA Cloud 1905, Journal Entry Post API (Synchronous and Asynchronous) supports over 999 line items posting, but there are some limitations below to be complied.

Environment

S/4HANA Cloud 1905 and higher.

Reproducing the Issue

Now it is possible to post more than 999 line items with Journal Entry Post API posting.

Resolution

As of CE1905,  Journal Entry Post API (Synchronous and Asynchronous) supports over 999 line items posting. But there are some limitations below to be complied.

  • If the document line item number is less than or equal 999, no compress will happen. The details are stored in both of Entry View and Ledger View.
  • If the document line item number is higher than 999 and the items exclude open item, cross company item and tax item, the items are only stored in the Ledger View without compress.
  • If the document line item number is higher than 999 and the items include open item, cross company item or tax item, the items will be compressed in Entry View. This is done by deleting the contents from the account assignment except for the function area. But the details are still stored in the Ledger View. However,  for the following cases, the items will not be compressed in Entry View:

a. CreditorItem or DebtorItem cannot be compressed.
b. The G/L Items with accounts which are open item management cannot be compressed if the G/L items are distinguished by assignment or account assignment or item text or any other value offered in the GL structure (besides amount fields).  If there are no difference among G/L items besides amount fields, they will be compressed.
c. If items have unique document item text or assignment,  these items cannot be compressed.

  • In case the document line item number is still higher than 999 after compress, the posting will fail as Entry View does not support over 999 line items.
