Reproducing the Issue

For example, change a G/L account to a reconciliation account, when saving following warning message occurs:

"There is a cross-system veto check warning.

If you ignore it, the account will be blocked against postings in the production system."


The veto check is triggered to prevent from posting in the production system because G/L account is changed in the Q system and not yet released to P system. So modified G/L account will be blocked and automatically unblocked once transport request is arrived in P system.

So this posting block can't be released manually.

G/L account will be automatically unblocked when the transport is imported.


Choose "Ignore and Save" if you want to save the change, in this case, the account will be blocked in production system until the change transport is imported to production system. Or choose Cancel if you do not want to save the change.
