Reproducing the Issue

Prerequisite: A Party Role XYZ (XYZ stands for a Party Role name) that is defined Mandatory in the Involved Party Determination.

  1. Go to the Sales workcenter.
  2. Go to the Opportunities view.
  3. Open any Opportunity.
  4. Go to the Sales team facet.
  5. Enter a party role that is not XYZ.
  6. Save.

Result: An error message is displayed "Please Enter a Party With Role XYZ" but you are able to save anyway.


As per the current system design, Opportunity is an Error Tolerant Document and therefore it is allowed to Save the document despite the error message. However, the system will always pop up the error whenever you open the document in order to alert you.


If you want to prevent the document from being saved then PDI customisation is recommended.
