Release Strategy characteristic values


I've a task of setting up release starategy with classification for purchase requisitions. One of the characteristic present in the release class

is Outline Agreement. But this is just a check. i.e. if OA is present in purchase requistion RS should trigger, No OA then NO release.

How to achieve this?

I was thinking of using the OA doc number range as the characteristic value, but not sure if this will work.

Please suggest a way to achieve this.

    You mean to if there no OA is present, then the relevant PO is not subjected to release strategy or if no OA is present then release approval should not happen.

    If it is the former, then it is simple, the system itself will do that if OA field is blank with standard configuration.

    In case of latter, then you need to go for user exit solution. The standard configuration will not achieve this requirement.

    • Hi,

      Do not go for Complication!

      Create two PR document type, one PR document type ZCNB - Create PR from SA and other PR document type ZMNB- Create Manual PR

      When you will create release characteristic for PR document type (CEBAN with BSART)

      just add value ZCNB and do other release prerequisities.

      During designing release strategy of PR, only you have and can keep PR document type VALUE ZCNB with other release values.

      So while creating PR "ZCNB" PR document type, system will triggers release strategy but not for

      Manual creation of PR of PR document type ZMNB
