When editing and saving a Lead without Owner / Employee Responsible defined, the warning message "Please enter a party with role Employee Responsible" is raised.


SAP Sales Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales workcenter.
  2. Go to the Leads view.
  3. Open any Lead and edit it.
  4. Click Save.

Result: Warning message "Please enter a party with role Employee Responsible".


The Lead does not have an Employee Responsible. The system will perform internal validations after execute of the action "Save" and in case the Employee Responsible is not maintained, the warning message will appear.


This is the current system behavior. In case you need to suppress the warning message raised, you may contact your implementation manager to help with such request or approach directly the SAP Cloud Service Center.
