2981019 - Free selections are in parallel relation in Manage Automatic Payments


When creating the parameters in 'Manage Automatic Payments' app, the fields of 'Free Selection' are used, but no document is selected after scheduling the payment proposal.
In the free selection fields, the same selection field (i.e document number) are used in all of the four free selections.

Reproducing the Issue

  4. After scheduling proposal or payment, no document was found or selected.


All of the free selections fields (selection 1,2, 3 and 4) are connected to each other via an AND link (parallel relation).
Taking the above image as an example, this means that a document is searched which has the document number 1000000001 and also has the document numbers 1000000002, 1000000003 and 1000000004. The result of this selection is that no document can be found or selected for the payment run.


Each field can be entered only once in the free selection. That means that if you want to select the document number, you only need to use it in one free selection field. Multiple document numbers can be inserted in that selection.


Then in the other free selections, document date, fiscal year and etc. can be used.
