  • The revenue recognition was failing for a project-based sales order item, which did not have an associated invoice item created. However, if it was a part of a revenue accounting contract, and allocation was performed, an invoiced allocated amount was derived that was recognized as the final accrual.

  • The element LocalInstrumentCode in the object HouseBankAccount is now PSM read-released in the SAP Business ByDesign and SAP Cloud Application Studio implementations. (Hotfix ID: 1000012978)


Human Resources Management

Time & Labour Management

  • When trying to release a service confirmation (with/without order completion) for a service agent, the following error was being raised- 'Time entry for Service Confirmation not allowed for External Employee'. With the May 2021 release of SAP Business ByDesign, the service confirmation integration was available for internal as well as external fulfilment, including the intercompany service scenarios. When the relevant Business Configuration option was scoped, a service confirmation was creating a time entry, whether it was an internal employee or a service agent doing the service confirmation. This issue has now been fixed. (Hotfix ID: 1000013425)
  • In the mass re-assignment of project time recordings, some of the re-assignments were stuck in the 'In Process' status for a long time.

Supply Chain Management

Goods and Activity Confirmation

  • The consignment screens - Consignment Stock Overview, Consignment Serial Stock Overview, and Valuated Consignment Stock Overview were using incorrect value help for the Account ID selection criteria. Previously, the Party value help was being used because of which, when trying to select a party of Org Unit Type, selection in the value help was resulting in the ID changing back to the Party ID and not the Business Partner ID. This issue has now been fixed as the UI screens have been replaced with the BusinessPartner value help. (Hotfix ID: 1000014911. This fix has already been delivered as a patch.)


  • In Custom OData Service for the PhysicalInventoryTask, the parameter ResponsibleEmployee ID was not available for the SetResponsible business object action. This issue has now been fixed. (Hotfix ID: 1000014403)

Outbound Logistics

  • The fix provided ensures that the freight amount will not be considered in the 135 GBP Threshold comparison amount. Also, the Ship To location will be taken into consideration for the comparison rather than the contract.  (Hotfix ID: 1000015181)
  • The Product Rate per unit on the Delivery Note for the India Stock transfer order will now be generated correctly in the first instance. (Hotfix ID: 1000012237)

Production Bill of Material

  • It was not possible to create custom reports for data sources SCMITEMCHST and SCMPBOMU02, due to incorrect values in a technical parameter. With this fix, the values of the technical parameter have been corrected. (Hotfix ID: 1000013066)

Outbound Delivery Request

  • While creating an Outbound Third-party Warehouse Request through the automated action, '3PL Outbound Delivery Runs' under the Third-party Logistics work center, the contact party was not getting created in the 3PL request. This issue has now been fixed. (Hotfix ID: 1000015761)


Supplier Relationship Management

Supplier Invoice

  • From Partner Development Infrastructure/SAP Cloud Application Studio, you can now hide/delete application-specific buttons from the Supplier Invoicing work center. (Hotfix ID: 1000013214)

Purchase Requests & Orders

  • When creating a purchase request, if the supplier was manually entered first, and then the selected product was already assigned to the list/contract price and has a supplier maintained, the Source of Supply was automatically determined and the manually maintained supplier was overwritten. The system was also throwing the error, 'Only one supplier permitted'. The fix provided ensures that the Source of Supply is not redetermined if a supplier was already present. (Hotfix ID: 1000012149)
  • The Active List Price default set in the Supplier Overview view was showing inactive list prices as well. To fix this issue, the validity period has been added as a query parameter. (Hotfix ID: 1000013876)
  • In a scanned invoice, the fields such as tax code and product category were not reflecting for the items. Also, if the purchase order was in approval/ canceled/ finished status, the system was resulting in an application error during the invoice creation. With the fix provided, the fields are taken from the invoice scanning object items and an error message will be shown in case the purchase order is in one of the above statuses. (Hotfix ID: 4500015320)
