SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open SOAP UI
  2. Run the web service request to create Purchasing contract with one item and release it
  3. Now, run the  request XML to create new item and update old item in Purchasing contract simultaneously
  4. Response is not successful


The current behavior of the system doesn't permit simultaneous update and create of items as a part of payload.


So, you can make separate calls for creation of item and update for items.

Also, use Action Code as per the use case. Eg - 01 for create and 02 for update; Don't specify the attributes which are uneditable or read only.
