Is it possible to create WareHouse Product using CIF interface from ECC (Y/N)?


Hi there,

I have seen this issue being discussed in the past in the SCM community a couple of times, but I did not find a clear answer. Most topics were about 2 years old, so maybe things have changed.

My question is: Is it possible to create a WareHouse Product automatically using the CIF interface from ECC?

Our situation is like this:

Materials are created in ECC they are being transferred to EWM using the CIF interface. The EWM products are created fine, but we also need them to be created/extended as Warehouse products.

I have found a BAdi which is executed by the CIF Create-product-interface on EWM, where I actually can populate and add the structures for MATLWH and MATLWHST, but then the Product Creation ends in error in SMQ2.

My second question is then:

What is the best way to create Warehouse Products from existing Products? In other words, is there a BAPI or other FM which I can use in my own Report to create the entries in the /SAPAPO/MATLWH and ~/MATLWHST tables? I think a recording BIM can do the job, but I would create a job for it.

I tried /SAPAPO/DM_PRODUCTS_MAINTAIN, but this is also not working, or I do not know how to use it...

Has anybody solved this issue, or any new ideas?

Thank you so far,

regards, Walter.
