Make "Reference Document" field as mandatory in Confirmation
I have a requirement in confirmation to make "Reference Document" field as mandatory. I have done the config and able to see ' * ' (mandatory) in the reference document field in confirmation. However, system is not validating for entry in that field, I am able to save or post the confirmation w/o the entry in the reference document field.

This is a completely correct conclusion. SAP however states that although you can now mark fields as required as per your configuration there isn't anything controlling the fact that this actually a required field. For this you still, as in previous releases, need to configure some sort of doccheck via an implementation of the BBP_DOC_CHECK_BADI.
