Requests (No vendor assigned ) problem

Hi all,

we are trying SRM 5.0 standalone scenario

we were successful at configuring Self-Service Procurement, all our shopping carts take the right way from it's forming till getting invoice.

Now we try the Requests menu. We go to Requests. We fill all fields with product id and others. then i open Assign Vendors/Service Agents window, and i can't see and choose any vendors. there is a message:

"No vendor assigned

The request cannot be made because there are no vendors that can be assigned"

Why it is so? Why it is impossible to choose any vendors, and in shopping carts all is OK?

will award points for helpful answers

    Hi Artem,

    Please create a vendor list for that services/service category and it can pick up from the vendor from vendor list. Does your business allow for the vendor list?

      you should have a PURCHASER role.

      Then, via WEB you have a menu Business Partner, where you can see Process Vendor List button.

      And you will be able to create Vendor Lists

    What Muthu suggested is right, as well as the fact that you will not be able to assign any vendor up until such time as a vendor is set up in SRM for your Organization.

    This is done through the Supplier set up Portal and then in the backend R/3.

    Subsequently the vendors are then replicated in SRM for use in shopping carts.
