3343078 - IRN not Generated for B2C E-Invoice


You have created an Invoice document in a B2C (Business to Customer) scenario and the IRN (Invoice Reference Number) was not generated.


SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Select the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Search for the ID ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Customer Invoice).
  4. Click Edit.

IRN is missing under the General tab.


For the B2C scenario, the IRN generation is not relevant.

As per the Generate IRN website, the category of transaction of "Business to Consumer (B2C)" invoices will not be considered and hence the API interface should not request for IRN for these transactions.


This is the system expected behavior.
