3008086 - Purchase Order Status Rejected and Output Still Sent to Supplier


User is able to send the output to supplier while the PO status is rejected.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. App: Manage Purchase Order
  2. Select Purchase Order which is with Rejected status
  3. Navigate to Output Management > Edit > Add > Fill the new line with output details
  4. Submit  > Send output > order

Newly created output line is with status -> completed while the purchase order status is rejected.


When a purchase order is with the rejected status then actual processing status changes from <release completed>  to <rejected>

Unless a valid change to the PO is done only then the processing status related to workflow will trigger again and resets it from rejected status.


It's not possible to restrict sending the mail to the vendor.This is the standard behavior.
