Accidental Double BP Generation

Dear Community,

We are using MDG with Vendor UI in NWBC.

When we create a Vendor (new Business Partner) sometimes a second BP is generated randomly when we click on "Save" in the change request. This second BP is empty and has a temporary ID ('$7890' for example).

This is very painful for end users as they need to withdraw (if it's a draft) or even delete the change request when this second and unwished BP has been generated along with the correct one.

If someone has already had this case, it would help us a lot, we have many issues in resolving this problem, mainly because it is not happening at each change request. (it is finally not occuring that often related to the high activity our system has but...)

Thanks a lot for having read this message and thanks in advance for your help ! :-)

Regards,

Thibaud.

    Hello Thibaud,

    I have 2 queries-

    1. The unwanted BP that is generated , is it assigned a number after Final Activiation of the CR too? You mentioned that it has a temporary number. But that would be while the CR is in the approval process. Is a BP with a number generated after final activation?

    2. If yes to point 1- is this unwanted BP of category Organisation (i.e. is it a Vendor) or is it of Category Person?

    If it is of category Organisation then there is no issue with Contact Person scenario & we may be able to narrow down the exact scenario when this issue occurs.

    Thanks

    Hello Thibaud,

    Are you using the Contact Person functionality?

    I faced a similar issue using the Vendor like UI, but this was with respect to the Contact Person related BP.

    Thanks,

    Kavita

    • Hello Kavita,

      I have tried the scenario you proposed and in our system the issue seems to not be the same. Unfortunately, we still don't know when it happens... However I'm still interested in the following of your issue solving as the same correction by SAP might correct our issue also...

      Thanks in any case,
      Thibaud.

    • Thanks a lot for your help Evandro Klen Stephen de Azeredo !

      My point is that in our case, the BP that is generated 'accidentally' has no BP_GROUP. That's why I'm not sure our issue is related to the BP Group assignment.

      In which context did you put this method in place ? Was it because you faced exactly the same issue as us, without BP Group ?

      Thanks again,

      Thibaud.
