Payment Card - Authorization Horizon / Remove Billing Date

Postby Brahio » Wed Dec 19, 2018 11:54 am

HI
Checking if someone has experienced this what the solution may be.

Currently, SAP defines the Authorization Horizon as the config of the number of days before availability or billing date of product when a new authorization is required to be generated (Not to be confused with Authorization Validity which is the config of the number of days after an authorization that it expires).

The problem with the Horizon is that it also considers billing date which for us is ALWAYS the day we enter the order. It has no relevance to our delivery-related authorizations. This inclusion of billing date negates the entire function of obtaining a new auth prior to when we anticipate it to ship based on ATP. That is, it will continue to get an authorization after the Authorization Validity expiration regardless of the planned stock inflow of because the billing date is considered here...and it uses it.

I'm looking at modifying the Authorization routine for our checking group to somehow get rid of Billing in the equation so we can get it to "truely" get an authorization on the number of days before the product becomes available.

Thanks for any assistance!!
