Steps: Forcing the Issue
Support engineers were able to force the issue to happen with 2 scenarios. In scenario #1, the engineer used Help > Diagnostics > Examine to clear the account alias source id. The record saved and caused the data corruption. In scenario #2, the navigation including a backwards tab allowed the engineer to clear the source.
Scenario #1: Help > About
This is not a recommended approach but discussed here to show how the issue could be tested.
Video - Issue With Help > Diagnostics (02:45)
Scenario #2: Backwards Tab
This is not a recommended approach but discussed here to show how the issue could be tested. You start to enter a transaction, go back to the header information and backward tab to the date. After this, you can perform a transaction without the source entered.
Users cannot close the related inventory period related to the transactions. All transactions must be costed before the period can close.
