Problem with BNK_INI

Good morning everyone, we ran into a small problem while configuring Bank Communications Management workflow functionality, first we tested the release in BNK_INI with 1 step and BNK_COM with 3 steps, it all worked well and the payment batch flowed via workflow to all designated approvers.

Now we tried to skew the process a bit, we changed BNK_INI to include 3 steps in BNK_BNK_INI_REL01, and configured BNK_COM to include only 1 step, when I created the new payment run the system did not trigger the workflow at all, I can't see any workflow running in error mode in SWIA, or in SWPR, and in BNK_MONI when I select the payment batch and click the Approver List the system is saying "Release object does not exist for batch xxxxxxx", is there something that we need to do to refresh the system to work with the new settings? I did go through SAP Note 1041016 but there is nothing that seems relevant to this case.

My other question is: BCM seems to work only after the Payment Run has already taken [;ace, is there a way to configure it to work after the payment release but before the payment run?

    Hi Rani,

    I am struggling with this as well. According to the note 1041016 there should be only one step in BNK_INI:

    "Use transaction BNK_BNK_INI_REL01 and check if, Release procedure 'Dual control' ('01') is marked for 'Always'."

    I think that you cannot have more than one step for "change and release" altough the customizing looks same as for BNK_COM.

    Regards,

    • Hi Vaishnavi,

      Did you check the note 1041016? Usually the problem is with the workflow tasks not marked as "general". Do you see any detail of the error you are getting?
