We have created a po with 6 ‘no part’ lines. 3 of the lines are coded to project 6120 and the other 3 lines are coded to project 4547. The Purchase Authorization Routing template that was selected is connection to Purchase Order Authorization Rule 100-4111 which has the ‘Apply Regardless of Project’ flag checked off. The po was acknowledged, approved, release and received in full
The manual supplier invoice was received and entered to match at PO Header, so only one invoice line was entered. The posting proposal was created and the po matching was done for each of the 6 po lines automatically, no lines were ‘modified manually’. The Status Detail Info is “Posting proposal is in balance and awaiting authorization”
The Authorize tab shows the Approval Rule Source is Purchase and the Approval Rule is 100-4111 as above, however, the lines that were coded to Project 6120 are all showing the following error:
The code part combination on posting line with row id 1 is invalid for authorizer 1053 in sequence no 20, due to settings in window Authorization Combination Rules.
Is this standard? I thought that if the po was authorized and the invoice matched without issues the Posting Proposal would all authorize automatically. Why does the Approval Source show Purchase, but the error message is referring to a Invoice Workflow Basic Date → Authorization Combination Rule? What is the connection to the Authorization Combination Rule ? Where do we see the Auth Combination Rule info on the Posting proposal window?
I have attached print screens.

I have done a quick test on this. Even if the PO is authorized, if there is Authorization a combination rule failure, invoice postings will not be authorized.
This is the correct and expected behavior of the application.
However, as you correctly say, user will only see the Purchase Approval rule in the posting information. There is no information which ‘Authorization Combination Rule’ is blocking this.
I think, this is could be a area for improvement. Might have to create as a new idea as well.
Will investigate this further and get back to you.
I have created this as a new Idea. see the below link.
