We transfer Product Master to CCM via BBP_CCM_TRANSFER_CATALOG. It creates SRM_EXTRACTED_CAT. And we manually maintain the addtional Characteristics values ( LeadTime and ViewID) in MASTER_CATALOG.
The issue is after new category is created in SRM, BBP_CCM_TRANSFER_CATALOG creates new SRM_EXTRACTED_CAT. It deletes the manually maintained Characteristics values.
What is the best practice for maintaining the additional Characteristics values with Product Master ?
