3006244 - Characteristics group Validation not happening through BAPI nor batch input


The characteristics group XXXX validation is configured for some mandatory fields in the profitability segment. This works fine from standard transaction FB50, FB01 etc. While doing the posting / Check using the BAPI BAPI_ACC_DOCUMENT_CHECK the related error is skipped considering the dialog flag when you use a transaction code to upload a Journal for example.  GS_STATUS_FLAG-DIALOG does not find any value hence characteristic group validation for account is not validated when mandatory field is missing in file and the System posts into the journal. However, you are expecting the system to generate the error as missing characteristic.
