    Hello Amar,

    With control key configuration for external services, you have 3 options for PR creation from Maintainence order i.e Never, from release & Immediately. Std SAP supports these 3 options only.

    You can have work around for keeping PR genaration optional by defining service material for services & planning the same in Maintenance order only when you want to create PR for those services.

    Thanks

    Hi Amar

    Are you using Control key PM02 OR PM03?

    Hi Amar

    I think for the External Services, the correct control key is PM03.

    Hi

    I think while creating Order you have made PR field as Mandatory

    Please check in OIAN.

    Steps as follows

    Follow the path as below in Config

    SPRO >Plant Maintenance & Customer Service >Maintenance & Service Orders-->Define Field Selection for Order Header(PM)

    Go to Field selection for Order Header Data

    (OIAN)

    Go to Influencing

    Double click on Order type

    Now Enter the required Order type and Press Enter

    Check for Field for Reservation/Purc.req --CAUFVD-AUDISP

    Make it input if it is Required Field.

    Give Points if it solves

    Thanks,

    Manish

    if you want to make Requisitioner mandatory not the PR than go to OIOPD field name AFVGD-AFNAM and click the field as required.

      Dear All,

      My issue get sorted out now. The purchase requisitioner name was made mandatory in MM based on the document type for maintenance service PR. I have set that field as optional so now its working fine.

      Thanks for your valuable inputs

      Regards,
