Ordering party has to be a company

Hi SRM Gurus,

We are working for SAP SRM upgrade from version 5.0 to 7.03.

We had AC workflow and moved to PC workflow in upgraded system for contract.

We are able to create the contract without any issues and the workflow is triggering approval to purchaing group manager.

But when try to approve the contract from user's inbox, we are getting the error 'Ordering party has to be a company'.

I have checked the org structure, there is no inconsistency in the purchasing group or creator or manager.

The results for bbp_bp_om_integrate are Green.

The work item is in status 'Ready'.

What could be reason for this error?

Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Siddappa,

    I suggest you set external breakpoint at Form CHECK_PARTNER_IN_FCT_EXISTS include LBBP_PDBUPF0S to check why the error BBP_BUPA 263 is raised.

    If some specific BP has problem, it might have this error during document processing.

    Best regards,

      Hi Ivy,

      We are in ECS scenario.

      The issue was with the connection to backend system.
