2979465 - The field enabled in data source extension can be only displayed by means of 'Issue Output To' when the output item status is 'In Preparation' - SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Symptom

You enabled a field by extending data source SD_SLS_FDP_V1_QUOTATION_SRV or FDP_V1_ORDER_CONFIRM_SRV for a custom form template.

However, when displaying the PDF in the output item whose status is 'In Preparation', the field is only displayed by means of VA02/VA03 initial screen - menu bar - Sales Document - Issue Output To - Choose the output item - Display PDF. It won't be displayed in any other approach to the output item.

Environment

  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. A field has been enabled for a specific data source extension of sales document in Custom Fields and Logic app.
  2. A custom form template is prepared using this extended data source.
  3. Create a sales order and there is also an output item prepared with output item status 'In Preparation'.
  4. When open this sales order via VA02/VA03, the enabled field in 'In Preparation' output item can only be displayed by means of VA02/VA03 initial screen - menu bar - Sales Document - Issue Output To - Choose the output item - Display PDF. Any other approach to display the PDF will not display that field with value.

Resolution

It's known and documented in the following URL:
How to Extend a Custom Form Template with Standard Fields
>> When you add fields to custom form templates using data source extensions, these fields are not displayed in the PDF preview, only in the final output.

If you're using an extended data source for PDF output and it's expected to check the extended field for output item whose status is 'In Preparation', please use the approach by Sales Document - Issue Output To rather than the other ways.
