3040874 - "Print Scheduled Purchase Orders" App timeout

Symptom

When running the APP "Print Scheduled Purchase Orders" to generate Purchase Order print out or email transmissions, the system hangs and can sometimes timeout before completion.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud All versions

Reproducing the Issue

1) Open the "Print Scheduled Purchase Orders" App
2) Enter the Output type PURCHASE_ORDER and the Channel (PRINT or EMAIL) 
3) Execute the Job

Cause

The steps that are carried out in the APP can be performance intensive, in particular the rendering of the PDF. If you have many purchase orders with many items 
the processing cannot complete in the foreground before the default 10 minute time out period.

Resolution

As of CE2105 a new APP is available. 'Schedule Release of Purchase Order Outputs' This APP is enabled for background processing and recurring scheduling.
