3136592 - wrong approvals in supplier invoice


Approvals are not rechecked when extension fields are filled up with values in supplier invoice


Though extension field is filled up the Supplier invoice still goes for approval


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue


1.Create extension field.

2.Approvals conditions are set such that invoice goes for approval if extension field is empty.

 Steps to reproduce:

Invoice 1 created without values in extension field thus as expected it goes for approval

Invoice 2 enter values in extension field  but it is  still going  for approval wrongly

also  if you  invoice 1 and enter the values for extension fields but it is still going  for approval  wrongly.


currently system is developed where supplier invoices don't support this extension field values for triggering approvals.

 if you take same example for Goods receipts you will see that  its works as expected. so  the issue exist in Supplier invoice but that is the way system was developed from the beginning


Kindly ask your partners to help fix the issue in supplier invoice approvals.
