Mass Create of Vendors in MDG after go live.

Hello Experts,

After MDG-S go live. Vendor Governance process at my client is quite stable. Everything seems to be working.

Number Ranges for BP => Internal

Number Ranges for Vendor => External

Currently the Mass Creation of Vendors which we are doing is through data services which consumes spreadsheet and push CREMAS idocs to MDG system. For this process, we have to change the number ranges for BP to external & then process the job.

Number Ranges for BP => External

Number Ranges for Vendor => External

Because the config is present for BP & Vendor to have same number, therefore we are having the data loaded successfully & BP's are created.

Problem, this process is a night process so that business working hours will not get impacted by switching the number ranges.

Is there any available process in MDG which we can use without changing the number ranges ???

"Import Master Data" -> This feature is available as part of MDG process but do not know if the same concept is applied there like Changing the Number Ranges or not.

Please guide.

Hi Rohit,

it is a very bad idea to post IDocs to MDG. These IDocs will not create a BP, they will not create key mapping. They will create a high risk for inconsistent and invalid master data. You can create any kind of unforseeable side-effect when later trying to use these kinds of records!

In general the recommendation would be using a common "initial load". You will need the CREMDM IDoc type and then upload the same via the data import framework. With that, you woould use a recommended process that ensures that all of your MDG related scenarios will run correctly.

Kind regards

Hi Michael,

Thanks for the response.

As we are using BP number same as Vendor so key mapping is not a problem for us and BP is getting created for each Vendor. I agree this is not the recommended process for MDG-S. Please share any document which helps me understand the data import framework using CREMDM IDoc type in MDG. It will be highly appreciated.
