Automatically block Vendor after creation

I am creating a workflow to include a approval step after vendor has been created. In order to achieve this I want the vendor to be blocked automatically after creation until an agent review the vendor master data and approves then it will be unblocked. I have created a custom Method but it is not blocking the vendor. Please help me. Thanks

    What is wrong with the standard SAP functionality? Just configure the appropriate business critical vendor fields and the vendor will block on creation.

    This is normally released using transaction FK08 but there is nothing stopping you building a workflow to improve the standard process.

    • Hi Lucia

      I think you also need to include the key fields in that configuration. These will never change but the initial creation will trigger the block you are looking for. Vendor number and company code would normally cover it.

    Hi,

    Then you need to block the vendor from enhancement before the event raising for workflow. After that from workflow you unblock the vendor after approval using activity step.

    Thanks
