Migrate Purchasing Contract with Item Status = Inactive for Sourcing


Is there a way to upload Purchasing Contracts (migration tool or otherwise), with the Item Status set to "Inactive for Sourcing"? It seems the migration templates do not allow for this...

We have a scenario where we want to create a large amount of new Purchasing Contract data but make it active gradually by flipping the Item Status at the right time.

    Hi Eelco,

    I am not entirely sure, if you will be able to migrate contract with the item status inactive for sourcing.

    What I understand is you should migrate only released and approved contracts. If contract is not released or approved in legacy system, you need to create the new contact in Bydesing manually.

    I understand that you would like to use the contract in future and hence would activate for the Sourcing later, In which case would it be possible to maintain the valid from date in future so that it will not be used immediately after you migrate the contracts.

    Another option could to use web service. But I am not sure if that allows you to set the status.
