3472024 - Response code of API Sales Order (A2X, OData V2) is success but an error is expected - S/4HANA Cloud


Business requirement is to update a field via the PATCH method using API Sales Order (A2X, OData V2)  but due to system restrictions it is not possible to do so. Response code is success (204) but an error is expected.




Standard system behaviour.


Every field is treated similarly. When the field is not changeable, an error is raised, and the next field will be processed. Consequently, when a PATCH request is successful, it does not necessarily depend on whether any field was changed or not. Every single field is treated individually and needs to be checked in the HTTP response's header sap-message structure. (Or by GET request after the PATCH). This is the model and behavior of this API in PATCH requests.
