Hi SRM experts,

I have a small doubt for ariba catalog integration to SAP SRM. Requesting for your help.

In SRM-MDM catalog scenario, we have the steps below in brief: -

1. basic extraction of customizing data in SRM and ERP

2. other data like contracts and PIRs from ERP - MECCM t-code

3. reports in SRM for transfering products, contracts and suppliers like BBP_CCM_catalog_TRANSFER, SRMMDM_CTR_TRANSFER, ROS_SUPPLIER_SEND_TO_CATALOG.

For sending data on products, contracts and inforecords in CIF format, does SAP or Ariba provide an report/configuration in ECC/SRM to send data to Ariba catalog?

I tried out to findout, but could find most of them information on configuring catalog call structure, activities on ariba side.

Please help me in this regard.

Thanks and Regards,

Hi Harinadh,

As I know, if you are going to use Ariba as a punchout catalog, it could not behave the same as internal catalog for data extraction. It is more like an external catalog, and data should be maintained in external catalog separately.

However, SRM indeed is having some integration with Ariba for some functionality. For the customizing, please check the path below:

Execute transaction SPRO ->display SAP Reference IMG ->Integration with Other SAP Components ->SAP Business Suite Integration Component for Ariba ->Application-Specific Settings ->SAP SRM Integration Component for Ariba
Until now, PO creation, RFxAribaSourcing, and Rfx related functions are relevant for Ariba integration.

Hi Ivy,

Thanks a lot for helping me out. I also found many of your previous posts very helpful and informative.! Thanks for them too..! :)

Its absolutely true that Ariba is an external catalog and it needs to be maintained separately( may be like on supplier site of ariba). But I thought about these reports as most of Ariba tools accept flat files as part of integrating approach and I thought if they might have provided any SAP specific transports to extract in their supporting file format.

Its absolutely true SRM-Ariba integration is in use for extended classic scenarios.

Thanks again..!



Thanks for your feedback, which is valuable.

For Ariba, to be honest, I am not quite familiar with it. It is quite popular since it is a cloud product. If you have more questions regarding to Ariba, also welcome to contact SAP and Ariba team should be involved in helping you.

For this thread, please also accept one of the replies as accept if you think the answer is of help to you.
