Reproducing the Issue

Schedule payment in app Manage Automatic Payments


BCM is delivered as always integrated with BAM (Bank Account Management).

The Grouping Field House bank account ID (ID for Account Details) = HKTID is an integration requirement for the 2 solutions to cooperate.

In BAM the signatories (approvers) are kept at account level, hence it is necessary to ensure that batches are generated per House Bank Account.


System working as designed.
