Hi Experts,

We are trying to set an condition - discount at header level for purchase order approvals. But we couldn't find the discount in the condition field selection. For the same we raised an incident and got the screenshot saying Discount can be configurable at header level. Still couldn't find the discount selection in the field. Attached screenshot for your reference. Kindly provide me the steps/option to follow to configure the same.

Hi Karthick,

We do not have any standard field as "Discount" in the Approval Process conditions.

You can add it as an extension field, then it will be reflected in Approval Process conditions field.

To do so, please follow these steps:
1. Goto Purchase requests and Orders-> Under Common Tasks->Open a "New Purchase Order
2. Select "Adapt" from top right side of screen ->Enter Adaptation Mode
3. Select "View All" and navigate to "Items" tab
4. Select "Edit Screen" under Adapt
5. On the right hand side, you can see all the fields
Select "Extension Fields" option from the bottom right
6. Select "Add" under "List of Fields" and enter the relevant details.
Now , save and publish

Then you can refresh and open the approval process again and you can find the "Discount" option under "Conditions" field in Purchase Order header level approval process.

Refer attached screenshot.cusersi333222desktophow-to-add-extension-field.png


1.If any of the line items in the PO matches the discount condition, then it will go for approval as per the condition maintained.

2. You can also make use of Add-On for this issue.
