Reproducing the Issue

  1. Manage Debit Memo Request.
  2. Select a Debit Memo Request.
  3. Reject All Items.
  4. Try to change/modify the Reason for Rejection for another.
  5. An error message is displayed: Item rejection reason could not be changed for the document.


  1. The new action call will not update the document. If a rejection status is already set for an item, it will not be overwritten.
  2. The document is already fully invoiced and completed, it cannot be rejected anymore.


It is standard system behaviour that an error message is raised informing the user that a change is not possible.
