    Avoid update on Supplier Bank Account number
    How to avoid update on Supplier Bank Account number in 19A

    Hi Team,

    Customer has a requirement to opt out the new feature to update Supplier Bank Account number recently introduced in 19A.

    Appreciate if you can provide details on the possibility for this in the same environment.


    Thanks and Regards,

      Am curious to hear any setup option available for this requirement, but meanwhile I can think of below options.

      Option 1. Try page composer customization on disabling bank account data field update

      Option 2. Enable 'Approve Internal Changes on Supplier Bank Accounts" from Opt features and create supplier internal profile change approvals to reject the changes always. Have page composer Add text to show text banner as changes on bank account are not allowed and rejected automatically.

      agree on these 2 approaches to tackle this need.

      Also in the Option 2 you can consider some fine tuned approval rules for these type of changes.

      Also I'm thinking that as it is allowed to change IBAN number than also we would allow to change he Account Number. Thus for us it is more important to have a good audit and perhaps approvals on these kind of changes. Audit Policy allow you to audit this data.

      Thanks Gopalakrishna and Alexey for your inputs.

      Customer doesn't want to go with the approval setup here as even a new Bank account number is treated as a change in the system and that would mean a lot of approvals to be handled.

      Hi Aparna,

      Just now looked at your original request... :)
      If you want to opt out this functionality, then you can do it.

      1. Go to Setup and Maintenance
      2. Select Financials
      3. Click: "Change Feature Opt In" just at the top of Functional Areas.
      4. Under "Supplier Invoice Processing > Suppliers" deselect "Approve Internal Changes on Supplier Bank Accounts"

      => now no.. approvals are needed.

      you can switch this back and forward if needed.

      If you don't activate approvals you can audit those changes and modify roles if needed to allow only a limited amount of people to access Bank Account creation / editing.

      Hi Aparna,

      just read your message again as also faced the same issue/requirement to completely switch off this feature.

      Will try to analyse the effect of this in more detail:

      what will happen if we change bank account number if already invoices recorded to the old bank acc number.

      Aparna, did you already tried to do the personalization for this to disable this feature?
