2868471 - Confirmation Control Key missing in Scheduling Agreement


You have a Supplier that is relevant for confirmations. In the Supplier master data you indicate the confirmation category that is to be used, for example, 0002 'Rough GR'. When you create a Scheduling Agreement however the 
Confirmation Control Key from the Supplier master is not picked up. Either the field is not filled at all or there is a different Confirmation Control Key introduced.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Maintain a confirmation Control Key in the Supplier master data.
  2. Open the tile 'Create Scheduling Agreement' 
  3. Maintain the required master data entering the relevant Supplier. 
  4. After adding the item information you can see the 'Confirmation Control Key' is missing or incorrect. 


Standard Sytem Behaviour. The 'Confirmation Control Key'  is assigned to the item according to the following priority rules.

1) Reference document
2) Info record
3) Supplier Master data 

Note: Regardless of the Supplier Master data, if a scheduling agreement is created with reference to another business document eg: a contract or an info record exists. The system will default the 'Confirmation Control Key' from the contract or info record, even if it is blank. This priority is the same when creating a Purchase Order.


Maintain your master data according to your requirements.
