2557490 - Payment Method - How to Configure UI Rule for other Bank Transfer to Display Same Data as Bank Transfer (5)


We are facing an issue with the Payment Method for Payment Information portlet. We need a new Payment Method with the same characteristics of the Bank Transfer (5). But when we create a rule to include both Bank Transfer (5) and other Bank Transfer, the output is not as expected.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

In Manage UI, when the rule for visibility of the Bank Transfer(5) fields have the following configuration, all works fine



The expected fields are displayed


However - We want to use a secong payment method Bank Transfer (4) with the same configuration as Bank Transfer (5)

We Created our Altenative Bank Transfer (4)




Added it to the existing rule



But the output is not as expected



If your rule contains  ELSE IF,  a separate rule need to be created.

For example in the above rule. The logic in the rule "BankTransfer" is like this :


If Payment Method is not equal to Bank Transfer (5)

THEN Hide several fields

Else IF the Job Country is equal to country (ex-South Africa)

THEN set several fields visibility to yes/no

ELSE Set all the fields visibility to YES


If you are adding the ELSE IF/THEN condition to this rule then it is likely what causing the issue


Create a separate rule for the other Bank Transfer and for any additional one as follows:


IF Payment Method is not equal to Bank Transfer (04)

THEN - Hide fields

ELSE - Display the fields
