The reason for the In-conflict invoice request in this case is due to the fact that the Outbound Delivery was canceled after the release of the invoice. In general, if the status of the Outbound Delivery is reverted to Released then a message should be sent to invoicing and the In-conflict status will be reset. However, in this case it is not possible to send the message again since the quantities have become 0, and the Warehouse Request is in the Rejected status.
