Supplier created in CLM but get new vendor number from FI after publish

Hello everyone,

we are trying to implement the following scenario:

  1. Supplier is created in CLM
  2. Supplier is published to ECC (via PI)
  3. Vendor in ECC is created using an internal number range
  4. ECC vendor number is reported back to CLM (via PI)

In step 3 our assumptions are violated as the system tries to create the vendor in ECC with whatever there is as ExternalID in CLM instead of using the number range that is configured in ECC to get a new number.

Did we miss some configuration settings in CLM or PI or is this scenario (create supplier in CLM, get vendor number from ECC) not supported at all?

Kind regards,

    Hi Martin,

         This should not be the case, Just to understand this better..

    1. you create supplier in CLM - there is an external id created/generated on the Header tab of the supplier

    2. Before you publish this to ECC (vi PI) there must a vendor account group assigned to this supplier in the business system tab of the supplier in CLM - can you check the vendor account group and its configuration in ECC to see if this is marked for external or Internal numbering..
