Document Builder Integration for SAP SRM without PPS Enviroment


I aware that Document builder is very much available with SRM PPS. However I would like to know whether I can use Document builder in non PPS environment.

To be more specific, we are implementing SRM 7.4 classic scenario with extended sourcing functionality and customer would like to use document builder for all the legal document generation.

The reason for not going with PPS, customer has MM system in place and requirement is limited only with sourcing functionality (RFX). Hence utilizing current MM with classic scenario with extended SRM sourcing functionalities and want to integrate Document builder on this landscape.

It will be really great if you can give your timely input on this from SAP whether Document builder integration is possible for Non PPS and how is it possible.

Looking forward for your response in this regards.

    From SRM714, we have some PPS functionalities which could be used without PPS active. Here is the list:


    However document builder is not included, I am afraid. It has to be used together with PPS.

    Thanks Ivy. This was really helpful.

    I have another query releated to Public RFX process, We are implementing SAP SRM 7.4 with public RFX process. Could you please explain me how the dummy bidder is created with Guest user to add them in the RFX to publish it in the company Portal. It would be really great if you could help me with some document which explains creation of Guest user with dummy bidder for Public RFX functionality. We are implementing Rfx response outside firewall functionality, SUS will act as supplier system.

    Looking for your earlist response.

    Hi Ivy,

    Thank you so much for your timely response.

    These data per your suggestion is available in both SRM and SUS. again we faced the same issue when adding the bidder and publish the public RFX. Hence we tried per note 2198667 and implemted Change BADI to get the bidder detail incase of public RFx and the problem resolved.
