2820950 - Message type W and I does not work for BADI SD_SLS_CHECK_BEFORE_SAVE


A warning message is coded in BADi SD_SLS_CHECK_BEFORE_SAVE but the message is not raised during processing.


  •  Sales and Distribution (SD)
  •  Logistics Execution (LE)
  •  SAP S/4HANA Cloud All versions 

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Logon with user role 'Administrator'.
  2. Open App 'Customer Fields and Logic'.
  3. Add Custom logic - 'Sales Document Check Before Save' with message type Info or Warning.
  4. Logon with user role 'SAP_BR_Internal_Sales_Rep'.
  5. Select app 'Manage Sales Order'.
  6. Choose option 'Create' sales order.
  7. Add sales data to the order to trigger the BADI and message implemented in step 3.
  8. No message is displayed.


The Check Before Save Cloud BAdI should be used to abort document saving. If there is no 'E' message, the other messages will not be shown.


As an alternative option 'Sales Item Check' BAdI can be utilised instead. This BAdI will write all messages to the log of the Sales Document.
