New payment list form FIN_FO_PAYM_LIST_V2 contains watermark "TEST COPY"


To remove "TEST COPY" from payment list:

  1. Download the standard master form SOMU_FORM_MASTER_A4 for predelivered form template FIN_FO_PAYM_LIST_V2 via APP ‘Maintain Form Templates’ (App ID F1434)
  2. Open SOMU_FORM_MASTER_A4.xdp via ‘Adobe LiveCycle Designer’. 
  3. Remove $.FormMaster.WatermarkText from the Data Binding of txtWatermark on both FirstPage and SubsequentPage. Refer to the attached XDP file ‘SOMU_FORM_MASTER_A4 _Changed’.


  4. Save form example YY1_SOMU_FORM_MASTER_CHANGED.xdp
  5. In app Maintain Form Templates.
  6. Click on New
  7. Enter values for Form Template Name, Language,
  8. Select Form Template File Name: example SOMU_FORM_MASTER_CHANGED.xdp
  9. Data Source: FDP_OM_FORM_MASTER_SRV
  10. Form Type :Master

  11. In Manage Your Solution -> Configure Your Solution, Create the following new content via SSCUI Define Rules for Determination of Master Form Template  ID 101184.  Based on this customizing,  the new upload master form is linked to payment list form FIN_FO_PAYM_LIST_V2
    In Define Rules for Determination of Master Form Template Sender Ctry/Reg.: should be empty. See screenshot

    (For FIN_FO_PAYM_LIST_V2, it is predelivered templates with default configuration, there is no need to associate it to form template master SOMU_FORM_MASTER_A4 again in SSCUI 101184. The rule needs to be maintained in SSCUI if a new Form Template Master is created.)


  12. Based on those changes, retest the payment list cases in APP ‘Manage Automatic Payment’.   There is no watermark in new PDF generation.
  13. See blog Output Management – Customize Content Form for Outgoing Check regarding Q to P transport steps.
