Hi Experts,

I want a scenario for Goods Receipt with Serial Number to be executed, and I have gone through the document "Working with Serial Numbers" for SAP Business ByDesign. As mentioned I tried to edit the Scope under Business Configuration and searched for Activity:Serial Number Generation of Registered Product. I want the serial numbers tab to be enabled in Goods Receipt and Delivery...!!!!

I couldn't find the activity nor I was able to edit the scope under Entitlements.Looking for help


Best Regards,

Dear Bhargava,

The General tab of the product for which you need serial number assigned will have a field called "Serial Number Profile". In the help document mentioned above the different kinds of profile that can be used for working with serial numbers are provided. In 1802 release SAP has introduced a new profile "Mandatory on all Logistics & Production Processes" which will ensure strict serial number tagging for any inventory increase or decrease activity. I can foresee below challenges.

  • You are not able to see the field Serial Number Profile

If this is the case please do try and personalize the General data tab of your product master data and check if the field is hidden or not. If you are not able to see the field still you might have to raise an incident.

  • You are not able to see the new profile Mandatory on all Logistics & Production Processes.

Please check if your system has been upgraded to 1802 release. If not you will have to wait till your system is upgraded. The new profile will be visible to you as soon as the system is upgraded to 1802 release.

Do let me know if you have any additional queries.

Hey Anand,

Thank you for the brief gloss, but my system is upgraded to 1802 and the changes that you have mentioned are not specially visible in ByD system.I tried to look out to personalize but the tag is not enabled in Help Center, Shall I register an incident for this situation?
