GOS Attachment list icon greyed out after migrating vendor to business parnter

Hello all,

We have recently migrated our SAP ECC6.0 system to S/4 HANA OP1610.

As part of it, we had migrated existing vendors and customers to Business Partners using the Synchronization cockpit (MDS_LOAD_COCKPIT).

Some of these vendors and customers had documents attached to them in ECC system through the GOS functionality (Services for Object)

However, when we check the corresponding Business Partner data in tcode BP, we don't see the "Attachment List" icon enabled (it is greyed out). Therefore, we are unable to view the details of documents already attached.

Please see attachments below.

However, we are able to attach new documents to business partners using the "Create Attachment" icon and we are also able to display the same using the "Attachment List" icon, which gets enabled then.

When we check table SRGBTBREL (Relationships in GOS Environment), the entries are available for all those vendors and customers, both before and after migration.

Please advise if there is an issue in migration of vendors/customers or I am missing some setting for Business Partner/GOS ?



Thanks & Regards

    Did you migrate to 1709?

    Looking at this OSS note I get the imagination that it is not available earlier:

    2446970 - Enablement of GOS document for Customer Vendor in BP transaction in S4HANA system

    Hello Jurgen,

    Thanks for the information.

    As I mentioned, we have migrated to S4H version 1610 OP. I wonder how SAP could have missed this vital aspect for 1610 version.

    Can we expect a Note for this in the near future?

    At the moment, we have 800+ migrated vendors & customers who have attachments. Manually re-uploading the attachments will be a daunting task.

    Is there a feasibility of activating the "Attachment List" through BADI / configuration ?

    I am asking this since we are able to manually add new attachments to Business Partners in S4H and are able to view the same.

    • SAP has missed a lot more which prevents big customers to migrate already now to S4, us too.

      Actually this was the note, which tells that it becomes available with 1709, so there is most probably no option to get it earlier otherwise it would have been included in that note.

      But this is all just assumed based on the text in that note, I am not yet on S4 and can't confirm it.

      Ask the SAP Support directly to be certain.
