Quota Arrangement Usage Configuration in S4 HANA 1610

Where can we update the Quota Arrangement Usage configuration in S/4 1610?

The field was moved to the Purchasing tab, but there is no guidance on the SPRO location.

SAP Notes 2268069 and 2224371 do not indicate the new location.

Without this entry, the Allocated Quantities are not calculating correctly.

    I can just assume that either your 2 systems are not equal in the program level, or the necessary master data is different.

    If you search for OSS notes using the term USEQU then you get some newer notes. e.g. 2424194 - Quota arrangement quantity not updated when creating production or process order

    And looking at the code section and its comments I can see that SAP is deleting the old read statements

    and defaults all parameters with true (the old Xs from the usage customizing)

    *>>>> START OF DELETION <<<<<
    *>>>> END OF DELETION <<<<<<<
    *>>>> START OF INSERTION <<<<
    * usage of quota arragement is defaulted to yes in S4H
    XMAT-QPLAF = abap_true. "^2424194
    XMAT-QBEST = abap_true.
    XMAT-QLPET = abap_true.
    XMAT-QBANF = abap_true.
    XMAT-QDISP = abap_true.
    XMAT-QFAUF = abap_true. "v2424194
    *>>>> END OF INSERTION <<<<<<

    I am a bit confused, both notes explain that the indicator is not needed in HANA and that it was removed from MRP2 view with 1511 release.

    Are you saying that this indicator is now back in the purchasing view, or did you bring this field yourself back?

    edit: Just saw that this was reported before. So you might either ask SAP why it was not removed from the purchasing view too, or you remove it yourself in OMS9 except you don't believe what the 2 notes explain, but then it should be reported to SAP too, as they would need to correct those 2 notes.

    A SAP employee explained that you have to make sure that the the flag "automatic sourcing" in the info record is active.

    Thanks Jurgen, The field in my 1610 test system is present on the Purchasing view and not manually added.

    With no configuration options to set, when I create a Quota Arrangement and a few Purchase Reqs, no data is updated for Allocated Quantities on the Quota Arrangement. I created this scenario with a 2nd material and checked the auto sourcing box, but still do not see any Allocated Quantity.

    I have access to a 2nd 1610 test system with QA Usage values present, and the Allocated Quantity is updated as expected. However, the configuration search is blank here too.

    My essential question: With QA Usage values in one system but not the other, is that the cause for my missing Allocated Quantities?

    Screen prints of both systems are below as reference.

    Thanks Jurgen, I believe it is a combination of the two. Master Data is different per the screen prints and there are some program differences that I need to clearly identify too. I will navigate further with the notes and figure out the variations.

    Hi George,

    Any updates for QA Usage configuration, since there only 4 values which can't edit?
