C4C: Migrate Mobilphone for customer via migration template not possible - workaround available?

Dear SAP-Community,

C4C migration intentionally does not allow to migrate a mobile phone number for organizational customers using the migration template und migration functionality in fine-tuning. You can fill the fields, but it is not migrated. SAP Support confirmed this behaviour.

The reason: A company (customer) can not have a mobilephone number. Only a contact person can.

I understand that explanation, but for our business case we historically have many thousands mobilphone numbers on customer level. In addition SAP ERP does allow mobile phone on customer level and the standard C4C <--> SAP ERP Integration Scenario maps this perfectly.

However, we have a second source for customer which have to be migrated not using any interface but the migration template.

Is there any possible workaround to get the mobile phone number from our second customer source to the standard C4C mobile phone number field on customer?

Best Regards

    Hello Christian,

    The only way to follow-up this as of now, is posting your request in the ideas forum:

    Hi, have you tried to create a custom OData Template? Maybe this could work. It should be available on the Data Workbench. You can create your own one under Administrator OData Services. I haven't tested it yet, but it could be a possible workaround. If this is not possible I would create a KUT Field.

    Hi Christian,

    Very strange behavior because the field "Mobile" is available and you can maintain the same on customer UI. Maybe you cannot migrate the field in initial migration of customers.

    Some fields are not available during the initial migration, but can be enhanced afterwards, maybe this is the case here.

    I suggest you to try to migrate the mobile phone post of initial migration, using the migration mode "Enhance already existing records".

    The migration mode can be changed on button "Properties" of migration workbench.

    Let me know if works and if you have any questions.

    Dear Steyer,

    thanks for your reply. That does not work either. I really tested every possible method. SAP Support made me clear in an incident, that this works as intended, so it is not wanted to migrate mobile phone number on company header.

    I don't understand why and for me it makes not sense.

    Best Regards
