Not Released - BP


In Business Partner - General Data - Status tab we have a field called as"Not Released" with a Check Box.

What is the use of it. what are the functionality for it, and if possible could any one provide some business cases for it please?

When you see the BP No: with a yellow mark populated after the 'Not released' check box saved and when I hover mouse over it gets a message: "Changes not recommended"

I have done F1 Search, and checked some online search but being this in S/4 HANA Logistics, not much of help I could get.

F1 help says

with the check mark on and saved and then I created one sales order, and there was no message what so ever.

Then I have also checked all the boxes i.e. central block, and contact and created sales order still order gets created without any message and this makes me more inquisitive to understand the functionality of it.

I have read some point about this on

but think not very useful in the context of S/4 HANA Logistics.

So looking forward for some one who has even a slightest clue of its usage.

    Don't you think I would have done that already? However thanks Vesilina now I have updated my query to be more clear.

    • The field is not specific to S/4HANA, it is available in older versions as well :)

      Starting from the assumption, that if there is any functionality behind it, there would be at least a few notes with corrections or KBAs, I pasted BUT000-NOT_RELEASED as search criteria in Expert Search. I use Fuzzy Threshold = 1.0 (Exact Match) and no filter for Released On. The result are 11 notes. If you read them, you can understand where this is used and where it does not work (for some reason).

      I cannot test the functionality, because we do not use Real Estate or IS-H, but it is probably working as expected, otherwise somebody would have complained since the notes were released to customers.

    There is F1 help for this field, which explains the purpose of BUT000-NOT_RELEASED.

    With a bit of effort you can figure out the use cases by yourself after reading the explanations.
