2148660 - WF-BATCH assigned as user id (BKPF-USNAM) during FI document parking release


You use the SAP standard workflow for FI document parking release. The workflow has been configured by using the standard business objects and methods. While using these background methods the FI documents are getting posted with the user ID which is assigned to the background job (WF-BATCH) instead of the actual approver. The user ID WF-BATCH is being updated in the BKPF table under field BKPF-USNAM.

From audit point of view this is not satisfactory and you would like to have this field populated by the user ID of the releaser who released the parked invoice and thus has posted it.
