3223826 - Open Item's Payment Block Indicator to be Accessible via PDI/ODATA


You are trying to create a custom PDI Solution or ODATA service that requires you to set/reset the Payment Block indicator of open items in the customer account monitor. However, you did not find the respective elements.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Receivables work center.
  2. Go to Customer Accounts view.
  3. Open the respective customer account monitor.
  4. Select any open item.
  5. Click Item Details.
  6. In the screen that opens, refer to the Payment Block indicator.

You wish to set/reset this indicator via custom add-on/ODATA service.


The payment block indicator is controlled by two actions: CreatePaymentBlock and ResetPaymentBlock
These actions are PSM write enabled via BO Path TradeReceivablesPayablesRegister -> Root -> Item -> ItemSplitItem. In this ItemSplitItem node, check the available actions "CreatePaymentBlock" and "ResetPaymentBlock"

Nevertheless, although the actions are PSM released, there is no query enabled so that a specific object can be selected. There is only one queryable node in the TRPRegister and this is TRPOverview. This is a display only node that has no actions nor associations. It would show the basic information regarding open amounts, clearing status, etc of an item. This is the only real interface that the system allows at the moment.

The payment block (and reset payment block) actions are on the ItemSplitItem and although the actions are released, there is no way to currently navigate to them through PDI. The ODATA service creation allows you to bring in all of these nodes, but without any queries its not possible to construct a mapping that leads to the actions.

This is ultimately a new requirement that would have to be requested via the influence page. It should be requested that an association from the TRPOverview to the PaymentControl and SplitItem should exist.

Therefore, please navigate through the Influence Portal ( to check if this idea has already been posted so that you can vote up. Otherwise, a new idea can be created for this requirement.
