Automatic TO confirmation at storage type level


There is a requirement for automatic TO confirmation not to be done for certain storage types.

Business would like to validate it and then confirm. these storage types are used in all movement types, therefore automatic confirmation of Movement type cannot be removed, as this will impact the materials in the other storage types.

Is there any way I can control automatic TO confirmation for specific storage types

    Yes you can control confirmation at storage type level,

    WM -> Activities -> Confirmation -> Storage Type

    for the storage types, which needs manual confirmation you have to mark checkboxes 'EQ' and 'RC' for the corresponding storage types.

      Hi Sumanth,

      Thank you.

      The issue is not with confirmation required or direct transfer. In the setting suggested by you, we have a option that if we need a confirmation or direct into the destination.

      The requirement is that confirmation of TO is necessary, but if the material is removed from this storage type (R01) irrespective of the movement type, the system should not confirm the TO. This has to be done manually.

      I have no clue of we can satisfy this requirement with the available WM settings in SAP

      there needs to be a confirmation for all storage types. The requirement is that for certain storage types there should be automatic confirmation and for other storage types require manual confirmation.

      So by your answer, I have to put indicator for "stock placement requires confirmation" , "stock removal confirmation" at storage type level and deactivate the Auto TO and Propose confirmation at movement type level. Let me take this up with Business and check if they are OK.. Thank you very much
