Environment

SAP S/4HANA CLOUD.

Resolution

In case you do not want the system to automatically create a purchase requisition as long as the sales document is in approval, you can indicate this for one or more approval request reasons, using configuration step 102751 - Define Reasons for Approval Requests.

Once the sales document is approved, the purchase requisition is created.

Note:

The automatic creation of the purchase requisition can only be deferred when a sales order is created in a standard process.

In a scenario where the purchase requisition is created during a scheduled or manual material requirements planning (MRP) run, the creation of the purchase requisition is not deferred, even though the sales document is in approval.
