Business partners will not be created with HR-ALE Integration for PPM 5.0


I have a problem with the configuration of HR integration for PPM 5.0.

Our infrastructure is as follows:

System A: ERP ECC 6.0 EhP4 with PPM 5.0 as AddOn

System B: ERP HCM System

System B is a full customized HCM with Org.struc. etc.

System A is our main ERP (FI/CO/... + PPM).

I like to mentioned some extras:

Because of a problem in IDOC processing we had to implement SAP Note 1808669.

We tested the correction successfully.

System A has also the component SAP_HR installed.

It was done long ago and there might be a certain reason for it.

We configured the HR integration following different guides and SAP notes.

Best help so far were the blogs in SCN.

Our problem is, that with the HR ALE integration we receive the respective IDOCs from System A which will be processed in System B.

Objects (P) person with its will be created (I can see it in PA20), but no business partners!

Our switches are:

As for HRALX/OBPON we put the parameter to ON and OFF.

No success in both cases and there are no IDOC errors.

The message type we use is HRMD_A.

We also tried HRMD_ABA which produces status 52 saying:

Object 01 ,P ,00251920 does not exist: infotype 0105 cannot be created

Object 01 ,P ,00251920 does not exist: infotype 0006 cannot be created

However, in PA20 the 00251920 exist.

So we switched back to HRMD_A.

Interesting note for that:

1372268 - HRALX: ALE inbound processing for ERP One-Client Solutions

What confusses me a lot is, that many (almost all) SAP notes point to HR-ALE configuration in relation to SRM or CRM system.

I haven't found any usable SAP note describing the configuration/integration for a possible landscape with PPM like ours.

I appreciate an help, references and ideas!

    Hi Darijo,

    1. From your T77S0 configuration its look that you missed the HRALX - PPROL = BUP003

    2. If you execute Tcode BP, please make sure the BUP0003 is available as an option. If not the HRALXSYNC wont function.

    Please have a try & Good Luck

    • I feel you are not sending all data required to create a BP with program you are using , I just wanted to say try to send a max possible data used in Infotypes 000, 001, 002, 003, 006, 007, 105.

      I faced same problem and realised that I was not entering Bank Account No as Numeric and was getting above error.

    • Hi Sammar,

      initially I set the parameter to create BP with an internal number range starting by "1".

      Now, according to your recommendation and SAP documentation (so far I understand) I switched the parameter settings to:

      PNUMB = 3

      ONUMB =3

      PSUBG = 02

      OSUBG = 02

      The number range for the value 02 (PSUBG/OSUBG) is AA00000000 - AA99999999.

      In PA20 I deleted existing tests users (251880-251920 - see also screenshot 1/3).

      I re-run the IDOC process from the ALE transfer with we19.

      The users with pers no. 251880-251920 are recreated again - but still no BP 😢

      I will switch back to my initial parameter setting (see the very first screenshot of T77S0).

      Thanks for the recommendation anyway! please continue 😊

    Hallo all,

    Thank you for all recommendations.

    Unfortunately none of them solved my problem.

    I assume there is some dependency on the installed components in our system.

    We decided to create business partner by using LSMW.
