3292653 - Posting Date must be period end date in APP Postprocess Event-Based Postings - Product Costing

Symptom

Error 'Please enter period end date' in APP Postprocess Event-Based Postings - Product Costing.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Cause

For the event-based posting that is triggered with the logistic business events like goods issue, confirmation etc.
The posting date of the event-based WIP/variance is exactly the same date as in the original goods issue/confirmation accounting documents, that could be any day during the period.

However, for the posting date in app F3669 'Postprocess Event-Based Postings - Product Costing', the manual posting date must be the last date of a period.
To ensure the accuracy of order's cost, system need to retrieve to-be-settled cause on the order cumulatively 'period-based' and repost them to ensure the order is balanced in period-end.
Imagine if the WIP/variance posting date is what you entered anonymously, but the goods issue we retrieved not settled in this period is after that date,
that would be quite strange, for example, WIP capitalization date is before the goods issue happens.

Resolution

Kindly make sure the Posting Date is specified as the period end date in APP Postprocess Event-Based Postings - Product Costing.
