2302896 - Missing Authorization for Partner Company Details

Symptom

You have created an intercompany supplier invoice, however you are not authorized to view the partner company details through the journal entry.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to Invoice and Credit memos view
  3. Edit the invoice and click View All
  4. Select Document Flow Tab
  5. Click journal entry icon in Supplier Invoice Box
  6. Click the partner company hyperlink

You'll see the following warning: You are not able to open this link due to a missing work center view assignment

Cause

You do not have access to the Partner Companies view under General Ledger.

Resolution

In order to access the partner company details, you need to assign the Partner Companies view (FIN_PARTNERCOMPANIES) to your user.

In case this access right is not listed in the system, you need to scope this element in your implementation project. This access right is enabled once Consolidation Preparation is scoped, which you can find under Financial and Management Accounting -> General Ledger scoping elements.
