How to avoid re-triggering of Release Strategy for PO

Hi Guys.. We have a report which is to Close the PO, which is already have Released Status. This Close PO report, also make changes to Quantity of the Item, when there is difference between Actual Quantity and Required Quantity.

I am updating PO with BAPI_PO_CHANGE.

Even though PO has Released status, still Release Strategy triggered again and Release Indicator is set to X, which is Blocked, and Workflow process started again.

I am wondering, how to avoid re-trigerring for already Released PO?

any of the followoing enhancements helps?



any feedback or any code samples will be great.

    SAP cannot know that you are doing an extraordinary special job, for SAP you are doing nothing really different than it can be done by any buyer, you are changing an order. Hence SAP just reacts like it is supposed to react based on your customizing for release strategies. Especially based on the settings for changeability. You can only avoid retriggering with changeability set to 2.

    So you may need to plan your activities for a weekend and then you change the changeability to 2 before you start and back to its original value when you are finished.

    • Hi Jürgen L.. Thanks for your reply.

      But this can be done programmatically.. this is like any other special enhancement that can bypass some standard process.

      I will do some more testing and update you.
