2998099 - Document Owner for Printing changes for Customer Invoices with approval task


You can see that the Document Owner for Printing is set as approver of the Customer Invoice and you expect the creator of the customer invoice to be set as Document Owner for Printing


SAP Business Bydesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. User AA creates the Customer Invoice Requests XX and then Releases it( AA is the ID of user who creates Invoice and XX is the Customer Invoice Request ID).
  2. Invoice XYZ is created.(XYZ is the ID of Customer Invoice) and approval task is sent to the user BB(BB is the ID of the approver of the Customer invoice)
  3. The User BB approves the Customer Invoice  XYZ.
  4. Now open invoice and Check the output history tab
  5. Sender is User BB.
  6. If you check the Print Queues, you can see that the user BB is set as document owner


This is system standard behavior.
