3260878 - Filter Assign To in Purchase Request View it is not Working as Expected


When you open the advanced filter in the Purchase Request view and select the Assign To as Sales Order and enter the Sales Order ID, the system does not show any results.

Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase Requests and Orders work center.
  2. Go to Purchase Requests view.
  3. Filter for Open Purchase Requests.
  4. Open Advanced Filter.
  5. In Assigned To select Sales Order.
  6. On Sales Order ID enter the relevant ID.
  7. Click on Go.

See no records found.


The results will only show Purchase Request that has the Sales Order assigned as Account Assignment Type as you can see on the screenshot.


Even though the Sales Order is linked to the Purchase Request, the document has other type of Account Assignment rather than SLS - Sales Order. Hence, it will not be shown in the results of the search.
