3148357 - Error "A result already exists for insp. lot , operation , characteristic" when using API API_INSPECTIONLOT_SRV with entity A_InspectionResult

Symptom

  • Error "A result already exists for insp. lot , operation , characteristic" when using API API_INSPECTIONLOT_SRV with entity A_InspectionResult
  • No results are recorded for an Inspection Lot but the API API_INSPECTIONLOT_SRV and Entity A_InspectionResult returns an Error when using method POST

Environment

  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • Quality Management

Reproducing the Issue

Call API /API_INSPECTIONLOT_SRV/A_InspectionResult with Same Payload and Method POST
{
"InspectionLot": "40000000000",
"InspPlanOperationInternalID": "1",
"InspectionCharacteristic": "10",
"InspectionResultStatus": "5",
"InspResultFrmtdMeanValue": "1",
"InspResultValidValuesNumber": 1,
"InspectionResultText": "SAPTEST"
}

Cause

The process "Record Inspection Results in an External System" (SAP Help Documentation) has been setup and followed

With this process you request locking of the characteristic by creating the results record with status '6' using a POST Request

This means the results record is already existing when you want to record the result. With the POST you would create the results record but since it is already existing you get a corresponding error message as response

Resolution

Please use Method PATCH  , instead of POST to record the Results.
