3454551 - Delivery Schedule Updated in the Purchase Order is Not Carried into the Intercompany Sales Order


You have created a third party + intercompany process. The document flow is like:

Sales Order AAA -> Purchase Order XYZ -> Sales Order BBB.

Afterwards, you updated the delivery schedule in the purchase order XYZ and expect this update is taken into the sales order BBB. But system only updated the delivery schedule in sales order AAA, not in sales order BBB.

  • AAA, BBB represent the sales order ID.
  • XYZ represents the purchase order ID.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Purchase Requests and Orders - Purchase Orders view.
  2. Open the Purchase Order XYZ. 
  3. In Items - Delivery Schedules tab, there are 2 schedules available.
  4. Go to the document flow, you can see the third party sales order AAA and intercompany sales order BBB.
  5. Open the order AAA, in Items - Confirmation Schedules tab, the updated 2 schedules are shown.
  6. Open the order BBB, in Items - Confirmation Schedules tab, the update is not there.


In the intercompany sales order, the fulfillment is Internal. For internal fulfillment orders, the confirmation is scheduled based on ATP. so the update in the PO is not carried into the sales order BBB.

While, the sales order AAA is External fulfillment, when the delivery schedule was updated in PO, an XI message was sent from PO to ExternalProcurement to update the schedule.


This is the current designed behavior.
