Extended Classic Scenario PPOMA_Purchasing Org and Group


Hi gurus,

We are working with SRM 5.5 and we are having problems with the assignments for the Purchasing organization and Purchasing groups in the PPOMA.

In the documentation it says we should have one box for the R3 Purchasing Organization (flagged and referred to the backend POrg) and one for the Local Purchasing Organization (flagged but NOT referred to the backend POrg). The same for the Purchasing Groups, the one under R3 POrg will be flagged and referred to the PGroup in R3 and the one under the Local POrg will have the flag but it will not be referred to the backend PGroup.

Afterwards, in the attributes for the Local POrg and Local PGroup, with the attributes PURCH_ORGX and PURCH_GRPX the local and the R3 POrg and PGroup will be assigned each other.

The purchasers will be located in the Local PGroup. The R3 POrg and PGroup will never have users assigned.

The problem is that all the workflow is only working if the "Local" POrg and Group have the backend purchasing organization and purch group assigned in the Function Tab. This means that the 2 boxes for R3 are no longer necessary. In the documentation it says that this version of SRM needs both boxes for the POrgs and the 2 boxes for the PGroups. We have flagged the Extended Classic Scenario.

Any help on this? It's because of the version?

Many thanks and regards,

I will give Points!
