Manufacturer Part Number for SRM Contracts

Hi Experts,

To make use of feature "Manufacturer Part Number for SRM Contracts" we have activated the business function SRM, Cross-Industry Functions (SRM_CROSS_INDUSTRY_1) and SRM, Procurement for Public Sector(SRM_PUBLIC_SECTOR_1) as mentioned in the link:

But we are facing below issues after enabling business functions:

1. Account assignment has become mandatory for contracts, earlier we didn't use account assignment for contracts.

2. Few additional tabs are enabled in contracts and also in purchase order at item level which shouldn't be.

3. MPN field F4 search help is not working when we create contracts even if material master has MPN. Please let me know how it will fetch MPN.

Please suggest.

    1, for this, would you please tell me the specific issue? What kind of error you have encountered for mandatory check of account?

    1812629 - Central Contract distribution - Error ME 062

    2, for the additional tabs, would you please show me screenshots? It is probable that the switch will introduce more functionalities than you thought.

    3, For search help, please check the following notes according to your srm_server release:

    2475316 - MPN Error Within SRM Contract following input help

    2088198 - Search help for MPN does not work

    • Hi Abhishek,

      I am afraid that no standard way to activating MPN for contracts only. This is part of PPS scenario.

      I would recommend you check if you may deactivate the other functionalities which are not needed.

      or I could find the customer connection program link for you so that you may raise your requirement to our development level to see if this could be included
