The release status for condition records enables you to
limit the use of records that have already been created.
Release status has the following characteristics:
no entry: released
B: released for price simulation
C: released for price simulation and planning
The amount and significance of individual characteristics
is defined using domain fixed values and can not be
Maintenance of the release status is carried out in the
sales deal itself (in the proposed values block), is
transferred over to the condition records concerned and can
then not be changed for these records.
When setting up a new sales deal (with copy), a proposed
value is suggested for the release status, which can be set
up in Customizing for the agreement type.
A record blocked for an application is treated in the
access, as though it has been identified with a deletion
indicator. It can however be recognized and displayed as
such via the log functionality in Pricing.
The characteristic Pricing Simulation is only used in the
report SDNETPRO, which gives a net price list.
If when maintaining individual condition records a sales
deal is assigned to the condition record using the
transaction VK12, the release status from the sales deal is
used for this record. When changing the release status
using this sales deal or changes to the sales deal, the
user will be notified of any changes to the status.
The release status of conditions in an agreement can only
be changed, if the condition record has release status in
the key the agreement has the release status released
Otherwise the condition record always has the release
status of the agreement.
The processing status is always directly assigned to a
release status. If conditions are assigned to an agreement,
the agreement passes the release status on to all related
conditions. The related processing status is then set
If you have several processing statuses assigned to a
release status, the condition record receives the first
(alphabetical) suitable entry as a processing status.
The processing status, which the conditions have received
indirectly from an agreement via the release status, can
only be changed in the case of released agreements.
