2784171 - Cannot change "Post Automatically Only" option in G/L account master data


When editing the G/L account master data in fiori app "Manage G/L Account Master Data" app, the "post automatically only" option is not available for editing.


S/4 HANA Cloud


The "post automatically only" attribute can be edited only for G/L accounts of "Account Group"
•Income Statement Accounts
•Materials Management Accounts


It's the system design that other account groups' G/L account are not supported for editing.
A workaround is to temporarily change the account group to "MAT.". However before changing account group, please ensure that there is no open balance of this account.
Use SSCUI "Manage G/L Account Master Data" (150001) and change account group to "MAT." And then try to change the "post automatically only" flag. After the required changes are done, restore the account group back to SKAO, to avoid any inconsistencies.

It's a modification and customer will be fully responsible for this change.
