2599524 - Invoice Run Is Too Slow


You have an Invoice Run maintained in the system and expect all the invoice requests to be changed from To Be Invoiced to Released status. However, you feel that the invoice run is too slow and is taking too long to process.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work-center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Requests view.
  3. Choose To Be Invoiced and click on Go.
  4. Thousands of invoices are in To Be Invoiced status.


The cause for the slow processing of the invoice requests is hundreds or thousands of invoice requests with a large amount of invoice items.
Some of the invoice requests will also have more than 50 line items and these will always take a longer time to process.


Split the invoice requests to smaller chunks and push them in the invoice run so that lesser invoice requests are pushed at once.
Also,it would be best to create an invoice run that will run at regular intervals to prevent a large number of invoice requests all to be invoiced at once.
