MDG 9.1 Multiple Assignement of Customers and Vendors to a Business Partner

Hi all

Based on the innovation in MDG 9.1 Central governance, that it is possible to assign Multiple ERP customers with different Addresses (e.g. Sold-to Address / Ship-to Address) to 1 Business Partner, I have the follwoing question regarding the lifecycle management:

Is it possible to move a ERP customer from 1 Business Partner to another without changing the number?

The use case is: Business Partner "ABC" has 2 ERP customer records: Customer number "1234" is a sold-to, customer number "2345" is a ship-to address. Business Partner "ABC" sells the ship to address to another existing Business Partner "DEF". I would like to maintain the ship-to address as customer number "2345" but move the assignement from Business Partner "ABC" to "DEF".

Is this possible or do I need to delete the customer "2345" in Business Partner "ABC" and create a new ERP customer "4567" with the Business Partner "DEF"?

    Hello Zeno,

    Although SAP Allows Multiple assignments, it is not possible to move a customer which is already assigned to a BP into another BP. Technically this is not possible and only possible solution would be to mark for delete the customer from first BP and create a new one on the second BP.
