|milestone confirmation (PP)|
A type of completion confirmation in which several operations in a processing sequence are automatically confirmed. An operation is marked as a milestone operation using its control key.
If you confirm an operation that is marked as a milestone, the system automatically confirms all preceding operations.
If several operations are marked as milestones, they must be confirmed in the order in which they appear in the processing sequence. The system confirms all operations up to the preceding milestone.
Operations that have been confirmed manually are not affected by milestone confirmations.
