SRM-XI Integration.


My client wants to send a POrequest(in their format with and ID) to SRM, map it to SRM PO Request format, send it to SRM, wants Purchase Order to be generated with SRM PO number and send a PO response, that contains both SRM PO number and their PO Request ID, back to XI and then to their portal.

I have a couple of questions.

1)Can we send the proprietary PO Request ID along with the SRM PO Request? If yes, which element should we use?

2)How can we configure SRM so that SRM PO number gets generated automatically?

3)Does SRM sends back the porprietary PO Request ID and the SRM PO number, the generated one, as parts of the Purchase Order Acknowledgment?

Your helps will be greatly appreciated.

    Could you try to be more clear in your question?

    try to describe all the scenario? is it SAP Portal? legacy system?

    the PO requisition will be generated from the backend/legacy system?

    all that you want is achievable but you need to be more clear...

      What my client wants is to send PO Request, that has legacy reference ID, to SRM, SRM generate a PO number automatically (without involvment of user) for the PO request, and send PO confirmation that contains both the legacy reference ID and PO number to XI automatically.

      Basically, the client want SRM to act like a black box. When we send in a PO Request with legacy reference ID, the client would like the SRM to send out the PO confirmation with the legacy referenc ID and a PO number.

      How can we achieve this? Looks like there is a lot of custom development that need to be done on SRM side. Any suggestion??

      Thanks for your help.
