Reproducing the Issue

  • Update the accounting indicator S2 in your service document 
  • Complete the document and check option "Release For Billing" is available

  • Select the app "Set Material Price (Sales)
  • Choose the Condition Type DAI2


  •  Select the product / accounting indicator S2 and set a 100% discount

  • Go to item prices detail: there must a discount of 100%. If not, press button Reprice. 


  • Finally, BDR will be created with value 0. You can filter these the billing documents or delete them in the app "Manage Billing document Request"
