3423766 - Partial clearing of down payment requests.


When you post the partial payment, the down payment request is cleared and can no longer be selected for a further (remaining) payment.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Post a down payment request using Manage Supplier Down Payment Requests or Manage Customer Down Payment Requests.
  2. Try to post partial payments for the down payment request using Post Incoming Payments app, the Clear Incoming Payments app, or the Reprocess Bank Statement Items.
  3. The down payment request is marked as cleared even though it is partially cleared.


Standard System Design.


This is a standard system design. The down payment request will be cleared even though down payment amount is less than amount of down payment request. The partial payment/residual item processing is not possible for down payment requests as it is for invoices.
