Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the Supplier Invoices List app.
  2. Filter the invoices by status: Parked.
  3. Open a parked invoice. The Post button is active.



1. Execute App Maintain Business Roles, create a custom business role by copying standard role SAP_BR_AP_ACCOUNTANT

2. Select these threecatalogs and remove them:


3. Click the Save button.

4. If the user has SAP_BR_RECEIVING_SPECIALIST role assigned, then catalog SAP_LO_BC_LFE_CRT_INTF_PC should also be removed from this role.

5. If the user has SAP_BR_AA_ACCOUNTANT role assigned, then catalog SAP_FIN_BC_AA_DOC_PROC_PC should also be removed from this role.

6. Open a parked invoice or create a new one

Post button is missing

Now the user has no authorization to post an invoice, only to save and park invoices.
