    R13 - Issue with Invoice Approval Rules

    R13 - Issue with Invoice Approval Rules
    Invoice workflow is failing in R13. Reason: The indentified "invoice Distribution/reversalFlag" is not valid here.

    Invoice workflow is processing in R12.  However, as we are testing R13 functionality, invoice workflow is not working. 

    We attempted to modify the approver on a workflow step for testing purposes.  When we tried to Commit the change, we received an error (See attached screen shot ""Rule Error")

    We then tried to validate the rules and received the following Business Rule Validation: RUL-05717:The Identifier "Invoice Distribution.reversalFlag" is not valid here

    With the Dictionary Object: FinApInvoiceApprovalRules/InvoiceApprovalRuleSet/UKANSFUKURESFund/Pattern[4]/Invoice Distribution/Test[2]/expression[1]

    The rule conditions were not modified and are currently working in Production (R12).  Did this condition expression get removed in R13?  How do we go about fixing the rule so that we have the same type of condition applied? 

    It is critical that this condition be available for our business processes because we do not require workflow approval on cancelled invoice lines.  

    I noticed that there was another post related to AP invoice workflow issues in R13.  Wondering if this is the same issue or not.

    Your assistance is greatly appreciated.

      replace your reversalflag rule with Invoice Distribution.Already Reversed

      I am assuming this change occurred in R13.  Are there other changes to rules that I need to be aware of?  Or is there somewhere that I can get a list of the changes?  

      We will make this change and test.

      i do not know , the documentation on this topic is terrible we are left to find out by trial and error.


      please let me know if the suggestion worked for you
