2843926 - It is not possible to activate rules in App 'Output Parameter Determination' - SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Symptom

In the App 'Output Parameter Determination', upon clicking on "Check" button, the following errors are raised:

  • DEC_TAB_FORM_TEMPLATE (Expression): Selected form template XXX is not valid for output type YYY. (Technical Details)
  • DEC_TAB_EMAIL_SENDER (Expression): Selected email template XXX is not valid for output type YYY. (Technical Details).
  • DT_CHANNEL (Expression): Selected channel XXXX is not valid for output type YYY. (Technical Detals)

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

Step 1:  Go to 'Output Parameter Determination' App.
Step 2:  Choose any rule from dropdown Show Rules for. For e.g.: 'Sales Document'.
Step 3:  Select any Determination Step. For e.g.: 'Form Template'. 'Email Template' or 'Channel'.
Step 4:  Click 'Check'.

Cause

BRF+ is not scope dependent, i.e. all business rules pre-delivered by SAP are always deployed. There is no way to make them country or scope dependent. However other settings (like ’Assign Form Templates’, 'Assign Output Channel' and 'Assign Email Template') are country specific or assigned to a scope item and do not get deployed if not scoped. This leads to issues when checking consistency in BRF+ (Form template not valid) because depending customizing is missing.

Resolution

The Form Templates, Channel or E-Mail Templates assigned to the Output Types in the App 'Output Parameter Determination' must be also assigned in the corresponding configuration step.

Follow the steps below:

  1. Go to App 'Manage Your Solution'.
  2. Click on 'Configure Your Solution'.
  3. Choose Application Area: 'Application Platform and Infrastructure' and Sub Application Area: 'Output Management'.
  4. Assign the Form Templates, Channel or Email Templates to the Application Object Type and Output Type according to the error encountered:
  • For Form Templates error, configuration step 'Assign Form Templates' (ID 102313) should be used. 
  • For Channels error, configuration step 'Assign Output Channel' (ID 102314) should be used in order to check which channels are supported for combinations of application objects and output types.
  • For Email Templates, configuration step 'Assign Email Templates' (ID 101945) should be used.

The other solution is to delete these rules from the App 'Output Parameter Determination'.
