PRs not finding a release strategy

Hi All,

I am having a issue with creating PRs, when i create PR with one line item, it is finding the release strategy but when i create PR for more than one line item SAP can't find the release strategy.

The only common factor for the problem would appear to be that they are multi-line PRs.

Please help what should i do.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Madhur,

    Check out for the Characteristics of the Release class.

    I guess the material Group is also maintained in the same as one of the Characteristics.

    and if you are giving 2 material with different Material Grp, then the system will not trigger the Release strategy

    or there could be any other similar Characteristics which is define in the release strategy and is different for 2 materials.

    hope it helps you.

    Regards,

    it must be due to some of the lines not having the release characterisitcs

    for e.g. if account assignment is a char and you have H for one line and F for another, system will not trigger a RL if you have strategies only with H and F, you need a release strategy which does not have any value for the acc assignment char. else it will not trigger a release

    Hi, Are you maintaining release at header level or item level, if at item level than check for all items values are maintained as per characteristics maintained for the strategy, better to go for header level release which will be applicable to all the items, you can find lots of thread for doing header level release settings.

    Hi Madhur,

    Kindly check below

    1.If for each line item the material group is different

    2.Using Header level release strategy

    Thus this material group is aggregated at header level and " " value

    used as document in the below note

    47089 Release procedure for purching docs - Aggregation

    ***********************************************************

    The release procedure for purchasing documents is carried out on header

    level. For this, the following values are aggregated from the items on

    header level:

    • item value

    • plant

    • material group

    Example WERK:

    The plant is only aggregated on header level if all items coThe same fun

    same plant. If only one alternative plant exists, ' ' is aggregated on

    header level.

    A release strategy is then searched for with this value.

    Of course, a corresponding strategy is only found if the value ' ' was

    maintained for the characteristic 'Value' as an object value.

    The same functionality applies to the material group as for the plant.

    ***********************************************

    If one item has material class x and the

    other y the system does not know with which material class it should

    look for a release strategy. Now the system sets the material class

    to 'blank' and tries to find a release strategy. If you do not have

    defined a blank entry in the customizing.

    (: OLME >release procedure for PO > rel. strategy)

    system won't find a release strategy.

    Add a blank value to your allowed characteristic values in your

    release strategy. To do this you can define a blank value in your

    characteristic (CT04). On the values screen leave the char.value

    blank and add a description and save.

    THIS PART YOU HAVE ALREADY DONE

    CT04 > PO_MATERIAL_GRP has blank entry

    SO JUST maintain it in customising of Release strategy.

    Please also have a look into the attached note 365604 point 2d)

    regards,

    Lalita
