channel management configuration transactions

Hello Experts,

we are trying to do a pilot for channel management. Can anybody please give me idea what are the main transactions to configure or what are the key things in channel management?

One more question, Access Control Engine is available in CRM 4.0 or not?

Any help in this regard would be really appreciated.

Best Regards,

Vivek

    Hello Tiest,

    Thanks very much for the very useful info.

    I think CRMM_CSDR_PROD_MAIN is only for High Tech Industry. Actually I am too confused with the whole concept of Channel Management. I know well about Channel Sales for High Tech Industry (sell-in), channel inventory etc. having worked on High Tech industry project but if I have to configure Channel Management for a non-High Tech Industry scenario are there transactions available in channel management to configure for accesses & roles. A raw method for implementing these would be to use Authorization objects & portal roles accesses. I was interested in whether there is some standard transactions provided by SAP for Generic Channel Management.

    One thing I could definitely see is ACE. I have to make use of it & I am studying it. Other thing is partner profiles. Third thing as you said Accounts & BP.

    Since configuration guide and best practices are not available for Channel Management I was trying to device an implementation framework for CHM.

    It would be very kind of you to discuss some steps that should be taken to configue for Generic CHM i.e. for non-High Tech Industry scenario. Also I am in desperate need of additional documentation on this. Any kind of configuration document or framework document is needed.

    If you could help me with these things in anyway I would be much grateful.

    Thanks & Best REgards,

    Vivek

      Hi Vivek/Rob,

      We need some help with a very sepcific HTCM Sell-In scenario. We could manage to create some Sell-In records that are appearing in Table CMSD_SI. But these records are not appearing in teh 'Sell-In processing' t-code CMS_SI with the below message shown:

      "Some Records have failed the authorization check".

      We could not resolve through the day despite several Authorization Role assignments. Even ST01 Authorization Trace yielded no results. We also found a relevant SAP Note (1708766) and applied the same but with no results.

      Would appreciate any direction towards resolution of this issue.

      Also, since i am fairly new to the HTCM, request to share any relevant config documents for the same.

      Thanks & Regards,

      Vartika

    Vivek, I can assure you the ACE is available and working in CRM 4.0. I have configured it for my Channel Management assignment I am currently working on. Main transactions you might want to look at are not that many. Most of the additional functionality is in BP functions (Channel Partner) and it's classification. Then the PC-UI application for Channel Management, application CRMM_ACCOUNT_CHM_CHP. The from a portal perspective you also need to configure the ISA B2B Solution to process orders and quotes. Couple of CM specific transactions you might want to look at: CMS_SI_ALL_SI, COMM_PCAT_ADM, COMM_PCAT_PROFILE, COMM_PCAT_EXPORT, and CRMM_CSDR_PROD_MAIN. Let me know if you need mnore information. Kind regards, Tiest.
