Hi Team,

In release products , Engineer - > default order settings we have an option under Purchase "Stopped" checkbox.

If we are enabling it, it blocks creation of purchase orders manually or from Master Planning and also open purchase order lines.

Customer is looking for a way to block purchase orders creation manually or from Master planning but it should not block open purchase order lines.

Business requirement:

It is basically used for pilot/trail batch production process where they release specific amount of qty to market and based on feedback they will further release and so they wanted to block the items procurement till then but doesnt want to block open purchase orders.

Suggested user to enable/disable stopped functionality but it doesnt work out as every time they wanted to do manually all the time as it lead to mistakes.
