Safety Stock and open Sales Orders

I have a situation with some materials with safety stock.

We've created a sales order and the system is not letting us issue the sales because it prioritizes the safety stock. Our temporary solution is to decrease the safety stock, issue the sales order and change it back. We have no problem issuing materials to work orders, it's bloking only the sales.

Is there any way in the material master to prioritize a demand over the safety stock?

Take a look at the scope of check for your availability check (IMG transaction OPJJ). Check the details behind the availability check assigned to the material and the checking rule for Sales Orders (A) and Deliveries (B). My guess is that the check is not including the safety stock in the availability check.
