3071970 - Partner search help with name of employee doesn't work on S/4HANA


You are trying to add an employee related partner function (e.g. Employee responsible, Sales responsible) to a sales order.
You enter the name (or part of the name) to the 'Partner' field and press enter. You expected the search help to show the list of employees containing this name, but the list of all employees is shown as result on S/4HANA.
If you use a wildcard character (* or +) in the name then system issues an error message (The partner number DUMMIE* can not be used for the partner function Sales employee. VP124).
