1892945 - Employee With Read Access to the Customer Invoicing is Not Able to Release the Invoice


Employee with a Read Access to the Customer Invoicing is not able to Release the invoice.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Select and Edit any not-release Invoice.
  4. Select the Release button.
  5. The user is not able to release the invoice though the user have the Read Access for the Customer Invoicing.


Releasing or Posting a customer invoice do change the status of the invoice, hence a write permission is required for such operation or action.
The read permission is only meant that user can see the data but cannot do any changes and also cannot perform any action on the document.


This is the expected behavior of SAP Business ByDesign system.
