When running the AP_match process from Match Workbench page in parallel using the same user_id , for 2 vouchers tied to the same Amount Only PO for the same remaining amount, and having 2 process_instances ran at a small difference of 1-2 seconds, the result is that the 2 vouchers are fully matched, whereas the expectations are that those 2  vouchers to be set in exceptions as they exceed the PO amount.

Issue can be replicated using the following steps :

1. Create an amount-only PO with 3000 USD amount and dispatch it using navigation Procurement>Po >Add/Update Po

2. Create 1 voucher with the the 1500 USD and match it to the PO using navigation Accounts Payables> Vouchers>Add/Update>Regular Entry

3. Run matching from voucher.

4. Create 2 more vouchers with the same amount as the 1st voucher- 1500 USD -in order to exceed the remaining amount of the PO and match them on the voucher .

5. Go on Match workbench (Accounts Payables> Review Accounts Payables Info>Vouchers> Matching) and choose the 2nd voucher and at action set it to Matching and save,

6. Open another window and choose the third voucher and set the match action to match and save it.

7. With both windows opened in the same time - one next to another - run match for both vouchers - launching the ap_match process with a small difference (of 1 or 2 seconds).

8. The result is the both 2nd and 3rd voucher is fully matched, whereas they should be in match exceptions as they exceed the PO remaining amount.
