Symptoms

On : 12.1.3 version, Receipts Related

You are using AR Direct Debit in SEPA.
SEPA payments have some conditions to meet e.g. an IBAN, a valid authorization etc.

You find the Debit Authorization in error just after the Batch settlement is created.
That is to late because the receipts are already created and you can only get rid of the error and run a successful Create Settlement batch after direct table update.

EXPECTED BEHAVIOR
-----------------------
Users cannot edit debit authorization before the Batch settlement is created.

Steps to Reproduce:
Steps in Direct Debit are:
1. Create an Automatic Receipt Batch
2. Create a Remittance Batch
3. Create a Settlement Batch
In case the debit authorization is invalid you will know it in step 3, when it runs on error.

And is to late to change the Batch, after the settlement is created.

BUSINESS IMPACT
-----------------------
The issue has the following business impact:
Due to this issue, users cannot edit debit authorization before the Batch settlement is created.

The system does not check if:
Customer Bank BIC, Customer Bank Account IBANInternal Bank BIC, Internal Bank Account IBAN are not null.

Changes

The check could be done, before the Batch settlement is created, when transaction is created (Payment Instrument form, Payments DEV team), or when receipt is created (Automatic receipt creation process, Receivables DEV team).
