Using non ECC vendor

I have client request that they won't create the ECC vendor master record until the bidder has been awarded a contract in SRM.  We are using Extended Classic Scenario without PI, is following doable or any recommendation:

  1.      Supplier self register through Ros
  2.      Buyer accepts and create local vendor in SRM (different # range from ECC vendor)
  3.      When a local vendor becomes “winner” of the contract/PO, manual creation in ECC for vendor master (this should be ext. # range, using the same # in SRM)
  4.      Vendor replication from ECC -> SRM (update) – we need to test if this works ?
  5.      Create PO/Contract in SRM then push to ECC

    Hi Wendy,

    As of after SAP SRM 7.0 EHP1, using business function- Supplier Collaboration: SRM_SUCO_1 you can automatically send vendors to ECC.

    Now in your case if you deactivate it, this process becomes manual.

    Where as you can create dummy/proxy vendor in SRM until that vendor becomes 'Winner', later you transfer vendor to ECC & replicate same in SRM as final vendor.

    To change supplier in central contracts in SRM use transaction BBP_CTR_01.

    I hope it helps.

    • Hi Paul,

      the described functionality of editing the vendor linkage has been provided in the application exactly for such cases when an existing ECC vendor and an existing SRM business partner needs to be linked together. Whether you call it as a workaround, or best practice this is the only option in the scenario described by Wendy (beside of editing database tables manually).
