3204080 - Confirmation of production order cannot be cancelled due to message CO_MES_INT005

Symptom

The confirmation of production order cannot be cancelled due to message :
Message no. CO_MES_INT005.
'Order xxxxxxxx has been distributed to MES; cancell. of confirmation restricted

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

Go to app Cancel Production Order Confirmation(CO13) to cancel confirmation.

Cause

If the production order has integration with MES and it has status DISB (Distributed to MES) , the expectation is that responsibility for the order has passed on to the MES system.
If the confirmation was performed on MES through ODATA API, the confirmation needs to be cancelled in MES system, which would then trigger the ODATA API for Production Order Confirmations and send the cancellation back to S/4HANA Cloud.

Resolution

Cancel the confirmation on MES side rather than S/4HANA Cloud .
