3460763 - Manage purchase contracts: Deletion indicator


In Purchase Contracts, when all line items are marked for deletion, the overall contract should be automatically marked for deletion as well.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Manage Purchase Contracts app.
  2. See Deletion Indicator filter.
  3. Not able to delete overall contract.


System Standard Design.


In the application it is not possible to mark a Purchase Contract header as deleted. 
The only context under which this can be achieved is through the archiving process. 
When a document is being archived the document header will be marked as deleted. 
Otherwise, the document is deleted in effect when the items of the PC are marked for deletion. 

In the cloud, archiving of purchase contracts is done via the APP 'Manage Archiving Variants'.
