2926726 - Payer/Payee Details not Displayed in Journal Entry Resulting from Payment Allocation


You have allocated Payment to G/L Account in Payment Allocation and have maintained Payer/Payee field. However, you are unable to see Payer/Payee details in the Payment Allocation Journal Entry.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payment Management work center.
  2. Go to the Payment Allocation view.
  3. Show All Payment Allocations and find the respective Payment Allocation.
  4. Go to Allocation to G/L Account tab.

You could see that the G/L Account and Payer/Payee details are maintained and choose post.

The Journal Entry which gets created does not show Payer/Payee details (for example, Partner Company ID and Partner Company Name).


The Payer/Payee entered in the payment allocation is a partner company, hence you expect the system to derive the data in the journal entry. However the G/L Account entered is a balance sheet account (for example, of G/L Account Type OASSET - Other assets). For balance sheet accounts they system only derive the partner company if the G/L Account is open item managed.


The system behaves as expected here.

To have the Partner Company entered in Payer/Payee field in the payment allocation derived in the journal entry, the G/L Account entered along with it should not be a balance sheet account, OR, in case of a balance sheet account, it must be open item managed (Open Item Management checkbox flagged in Chart of Accounts).
