You set up a Renewal for Contract with multiple line items. During renewal for each line item a new recurrence pattern is created.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a contract ABC with renewal rule and 2 line items (ABC represents the contract ID)
  2. Create an invoice schedule for both line items.
  3. Assign the invoice schedules to one Recurrence Pattern.
  4. Release the contract and wait for items to be renewed.

Each Line Item creates a new recurrence pattern, which is identical to the originally used recurrence pattern.

  1. Navigate to the Sales Order workcenter.
  2. Open the Contracts view.
  3. Open Contract ABC.
  4. Navigate to the Pricing and Invoicing tab.
  5. Select the Invoice Schedule subtab.
  6. Edit Invoicing Time Frame.

You can see the original recurrence pattern and a recurrence pattern for each renewed line item.


  • This is the expected system behavior.
  • During renewal, a new recurrence pattern is created for each line item, which contains the information from the original recurrence pattern.
