    With data migration we create only initial data. We do not update or modify data.

    The template called "Purchasing info record - extend existing record” allows you to extend an already existing record with new org levels.

    Example: you have migrated an info record for purchasing org 1010. For this existing record you can migrate a new plant or a new purchasing org. You can only extend existing records and not update or modify an existing record.

    Please see that this is detailed on the online help:.

    Out of Scope

    Change already existing data.

    Create Info Record is not supported; if an info record with a certain supplier and with a specific material or material group doesn't exist, it's not possible to create this record. Please use the following object: Purchasing info record with conditions.

    The Pipeline purchasing info category is not supported.

    For mass updates you have the App:Mass Changes to Purchasing Info Records

    The available fields on this app are the ones that can be changed for PIR already created in the system.
