Migration Customer Vendors to S4 using Migration cockpit

Dear All,

I am trying to load Customers and vendors into new S4 Instance using outof the box migration cockpit(LTMC) load programs. When I have the same person as a customer as well as a supplier, it created two different BP numbers in the system.

I want one BP and roles created to Supplier and customer within that BP. How can I achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Anushka,

    From S/4 1709 atleast there are new objects for this. For example use 'Supplier - extend existing records by new org levels" object to extend the already uploaded BP as customer with Vendor role.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi Dharshan,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I checked the migration Object you suggested. However, that requires me to provide "Supplier Number" which I do not have. I have only a "customer number" and a "BP Number" .

    What I am looking for is not to Extend existing Supplier into different Org levels. I need to create a new BP Role for an existing BP.

    Hope this makes my question is more clearer.

    Thanks

    • Hello,

      I have the same problem, I have a customer which already exists, using the "customer" template, I want to extend this customer to a vendor role using the "supplier - extend existing record by new org levels" template and in the field "vendor" I put the BP code and shows the message "this customer already exists". I have internal numbering for BP.

      Thanks

    Hi everyone.

    For create BP with customer and vendor function using Migration Cockpit in S/4HANA, I suggest the following steps that worked for me:

    1) Use the same external assigment BP number to customer and vendor. You should use same external assigment ranges for account group of customer and vendor.

    2) You should create customer or vendor with corresponding template using LTMC transaction. If you begin with the customer, you have to use template Customer to create the company data and sales data in corresponding sheets.

    3) Now, you have to extend the BP function Supplier. Don't use Customer Extend because this already exist. With Migration Object Modeler (LTMOM), in the Vendor extend template, you have to aggregate the field Customer to match the customer number and the same vendor number. Probably you should request help to ABAP expert for this activity.

    4) Then you have to use LTMC to upload template Supplier-extend existing record to complete the purchase data.

    Please, let me know your results.

    Regards.

    • Hello, Juan.

      I am trying to do the same thing that you did, but i have a doubt at the third point.

      When you say that "you have to aggregate the field Customer to match the customer number and the same vendor number", I have to create a new field (customer) at LTMOM and use both fields at the tamplate (Vendor/Customer) ?

      Or i need to create the customer field and aggregate to the vendor at LTMOM?

    Hello James.

    I mean aggregate a new field (customer) at LTMOM and use both fields at the template (vendor/customer). In standard Supplier Extended template doesn't exist that field.

    However, at the second point, if you begin creating Supplier first, you must use LTMOM for aggregate the field supplier in the Customer Extend template. I hope to let me understand.

    Please, confirm if it works for you.

    Best regards.

    Hello Experts,

    We've S4H 1809 FP01 and standard Customer template does not have Authorization and BP type fields which are mandatory to create a BP. So I've customized source structure using LTMOM and successful to overcome this mandatory check. However when I try to create a BP along with SD view(Mainly SD Partner functions) or extended sales area for an existing BP, migration cockpit is checking for a supplier.

    In my scenario, I don't want to extend the BP to Supplier role. Am I missing anything here?

    Could someone please through some insights..

    Thanks in advance for your time.

    Hi Experts,

    Still awaiting a conclusive answer for this enquiry. Does anyone have any further feedback on the integration through migration cockpit of suppliers once the clients have already been migrated?

    I've tried following Juan Jose's advice but its just not clear enough..
