2637251 - Automatic Proposal of Identified Stock in Pick Task


You want the system to automatically propose Idenfitifed Stock ID while confirming a pick task.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Outbound Logistics work center.
  2. Navigate to the Task Control view.
  3. Search and select the relevant pick task.
  4. Choose the Confirm button.

In the Confirm Pick Task screen you do not see any value populated in the Identified Stock field even though the product is marked for mandatory identified stock selection. You expect the system to propose the identified stock automatically.


You have not maintained the Allocation Scope value for the logistics area from which you are picking the relevant product.


  1. Go to Supply Chain Design Master Data work center.
  2. Navigate to the Locations view.
  3. Choose your Site and select the Edit Layout button.
  4. Select the logistics area in which you expect the system to propose identified stock automatically in the Site Layout screen.
  5. In the General tab, under the header Inventory-Managed Details choose the value in the field Allocation Scope as Specific Stock.
  6. Choose Save and Close button.

Once the above settings are maintained for a logistics area the system will propose identified stock automatically, provided proper material flow rules are maintained for the relevant site. Please note that this set up will work for Supply Tasks as well.
