2936895 - Cannot Execute Proposal For Only One Item of a Payment Run (Payables)


You execute a Payment run. For a supplier, the run has in the Payment Proposal List created for example 4 line items with the same Payment ID: XXX (XXX stands for the Payment ID).

You decide that you want to make a payment for only one invoice and you select the line item of that invoice and perform the desired action. You notice that the performed action does not only happen for the line item you select but to all the line items of that same Payment ID.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payables work center.
  2. Go to the Periodic Tasks view.
  3. Select the Payment Runs sub view.
  4. Show Active Payment Runs and search for the run ID: XYZ (XYZ stands for the ID of the run).
  5. Under Execution Details, select the line of the Application Log.
  6. Select the button View Payment Proposals.

For a specific supplier, there is 4 lines of proposal created with the same Payment ID (in reference to for example invoices).

  1. Select one or two lines and select Execute Proposal.

The action happens to all 4 lines of the Proposal.


The 4 proposals (for the 4 invoices) are part of the same payment ID. Hence, the system process them all at once with the same Payment ID.


This is the normal system behavior. As the Payment Proposal ID: XXX has been created for the 4 invoices, hence all 4 invoices went to payment. Any action (Void, Postpone, Reverse etc.) perform to one of these 4 proposals will happen to all of the proposals.
