Variant Configuration in SAP CRM with Lord API



we are using the Lord API for the creation of quotations in our CRM system. So we can create quotations in CRM but they are saved in ECC.

Now we want to activate the variant configuration for our scenario with SCE/XCM. The SCE is working for configurable materials but it does not show variants for the configured products. We have created knowledge bases and runtime versions for the products.

In the XCM Settings the variant configuration is active

In WebUI the configuration looks like this:

For this combination of characteristics a variant is available. This is shown in ERP but not in CRM.

In this link I have read that we have to define item categories for the products that could have variants. But that would not suit to our Lord concept, because the customizing of item categories and transaction types is only done in ERP.

There we have two item categories that could use variants:

Has anyone an idea how we can make the variants also active in CRM?

Kind regards,
