Change in existing release strategies for release codes - Impact Analysis

Hello All,

I have changed a release strategy for Purchase Order in DEV as per the change request from business with new DOA.

Change is only related to addition of more release codes in existing strategies.

I want to know the impact of this change before moving it to further clients on the existing PO's with below statuses.

Fully Released PO's

Intermediate Released PO's

Release awaiting PO's.

The test results I observed are not I am expecting so I want you people to help me out with standard practice otherwise would need to raise an OSS.

Foe example...For Release strategy , R1, earlier it was HM and FC as release codes out of which HM had released

Now I have added CM to HM and FC and in ME23N, status is now CM released and awaiting for HM and FC.

Expecting some earliest response from the people who has already gone through such issues.

Thanks

    Hi,

    You should always add new codes only after old processes are done and are fully released.

    Otherwise in std. Sap system, it may cause a problem and the half done or half released PO will get stuck in between...

    This may also get delayed if proper authorisation is not provided..

    Also may cause release of wrong PO by wrong person..

    So, release old Open PO's first and then make changes...

    One more advice is don't make changes in the old one..just create the new one copying the old one...

    Hi,

    As you re-designed your release stratergy and tested in developement system where its is working fine for you!


    But did you tested the same in developement system, how purchasing document behaves when new release stratergy replaced with old release stratergy?

    OK.Before changing existing release strategies in production system, Be sure that all old purchasing documents should be released with old release values with old release stratergy and then transport related transport request number related to your new release stratergies!

    Hello,

    Thank you for the quick response, but I still have one doubt

    If say we have release strategy A1 with release code HM and FC and now I copy this release strategy and new value is B1 with release code CM, HM and FC and rest all the characteristics remain the same then during the creation of a new purchase order how system will identify which release strategy to be picked up, either A1 or B1.... ???

    Regards

      Hi,

      Why you are confusing yourself and why you want keep same release values in release strategy A1 and B1?

      Because that is the requirement from business, and the only change is into release codes rest all will remain the same.

      I am doing some testing keeping A1 and B1 and lets see how it behaves.

      Will update you with the output..

      Regards

    Hello All,

    I am done with this but the only problem I came across is in PO release strategy was showing inconsistent.

    But it is resolved now.

    Thank You all
