1849066 - Unable to Search and Find Business Partners with Both Account and Supplier Role


When you try to search for a Business Partner which has roles Supplier and Account, system returns only Business Partners which has Accounts role.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Partner Data work center.
  2. Go to Business Partner view.
  3. Select Advanced Search link.
  4. Select Supplier and Account in the Business Role.
  5. Select Go button.


This is currently not possible because the contrition not equal to Supplier is true for the other role. Hence, it is not possible to search the Business Partners with role Account and Supplier.

To make an OR for different query parameter values of the same parameter options is the default behavior and can not be changed.
