Execute the Request payload for the POST method for the CustomerOrderCollection (where XXXXXX represents the tenant)


The error could be due to one of the below reasons:

  1. You are trying to create a Sales Order with a Document Type which has Maintenance Mode set as Internal in Maintain Document Types in Sales Orders activity in Business configuration.
  2. In the OData Request payload, the NetAmount is passed for header and item. 


It is not possible to create Net Value/Total/Tax for an Internal Order and it is an expected behavior. These fields are only to be set for Orders with Maintenence mode External only.
For Internal Order, these internal pricing details will be calculated automatically. To create Internal Pricing, you may use the object Sales Order Pricing in Data Workbench.

NetAmount should get calculated in C4C provided the price conditions are maintained for the item type. Create the Sales Order without the NetAmount in the Request payload.
