Reproducing the Issue

Create a Purchase Order using the webgui tile “Create Purchase Order – advanced”.

This is covered in the SAP note 202173, in the cloud environment this customising is not available and cannot be set up.


  1. The feature of automatically updating/creating inforecords is also available in the cloud, in all editions except the professional services edition.
  2. This can be achieved using the “Create Purchase Order – advanced” WebGUI tile and manually setting the InfoUpdate flag at item level.
