3023803 - Action Validation-Release for CustomerInvoice and InvoiceRequest are not Being Called when Releasing Customer Invoices

Symptom

 Action Validation-release for CustomerInvoice and InvoiceRequest are not being called when releasing customer invoices.

Environment

 SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

You are creating PDI solution and added two scripts as below, however they are not getting called when performing Release on inovice.

/<PDI>_MAIN/SRC/EXT_CustomerInvoice-CustomerInvoice-ActionValidation-Release.absl

/<PDI>_MAIN/SRC/CustomerInvoiceRequest-CustomerInvoiceRequest-ActionValidation-Release.absl

 

Cause

You have approvals scoped. As such when the user releases an invoice it will not execute the release action by default. Instead it will execute the submit for approval action first. It will then go to approver to approve the document.

Once the document is approved the release action will be called. Please note that if approval is not needed it will execute the release action.

 

Resolution
