Significance of change indicator in license assignment

Hi Gurus,

What functionality does the change indicator (in license assignment) drive? Please see attached picture. We have a problem where the sales order is blocked (after a change such as order combination flag) despite release with manual license assignment. I'm trying to understand if this indicator helps in the resolution somehow. Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Satish

    Hi Satish,

    The categories themselves are fairly self explanatory. But I don't think they come into play here.

    I assume you would like the manual license assignment that originally released the document in GTS to be locked in? which would mean that any subsequent change to the sales order would not require the licence to be assigned/checked again??

    GTS has not been designed this way. This would be a compliance risk or gap.

    GTS has been designed so that any change to the ECC document requires that the original manual licence assignment is deleted. The business must then redetermine whether that assignment is still valid. That's why the document is placed on block again - so the user can redetermine.


    If this was not the case then the original manual licence could still be applied even though the document has been changed a lot. The assignment may now be invalid but the system is still releasing.


    This would be put the company in a compliance risk scenario and it would also put the USER who did the first assignment in a "tricky" situation.

    This has already been discussed in another thread:

    • Hi Eoin,

      That did not work. However, it does transfer the license from sales order to delivery successfully.

      The same problem occurs in SPL too. Released documents are blocked again for non address changes.Please let me know if you stumble across something helpful in this regard.

      Thanks,
