2820579 - Deactivate Event-base Revenue Recognition postings


You don't want to have Event-base Revenue Recognition postings that are generated simultaneously with the transactions.




Event-based Revenue Recognition function is active by default.


As for blocking revenue recognition posting for projects, you could have a look at suggestions for the following situations:

1. If you want to block postings for new projects, you need to make sure that there is no Recognition Key assigned to the objects.
    To do this, you have to remove all the Recognition Key via below SSCUIs, leave them as blank.

  • 102517 Derivation of Recognition Key for Projects
  • 102968 Derivation of Recognition Key for Service Documents
  • 103198 Derivation of Recognition Key for Sales from Stock

    And once no Recognition Key is assigned to a project/item, it will NOT post revenue documents.

2. If there are existing revenue recognition postings and you want to cancel these postings, you need to replace this Recognition Key with the Corresponding "No rev rec" key using one of the monitoring apps Revenue Recognition (Event-Based) and run Period End Closing again to clear the posting. You need also to use App Revenue Recognition Reversal to reverse all the documents generated in event-based revenue recognition previously.
