Overiding Mandatory Fields for master Agreement Template

Hello,

In the standard creation of the master agreement template the CONTACT field is mandatory. To me, this does not make sense because a template would need to be created for every contact/supplier. We want to make the CONTACT field optional for master agreement templates. I am trying to create a page customization with the following properties to accomplish this:

UI ID:contracts.contract.ui.buyside.default

Name:Master AgreementParent

Class: Master Agreement

Field ID: Contact

Property: required

Value: no

Dimension on parent set

Dimension Field : IS_TEMPLATE

Dimension Field Type: Boolean

Dimension Value: yes

I can not seem to make it work. Any suggestions? Is this even possible?

Thanks in advance,

Kyle

    In older versions the contact was not required. Internally to SAP we have requested that development remove this requirement for this exact reason.

    Sorry Kyle,

    It is not possible to make this field optional. In the past the work around was to create a dummy vendor.

      Thanks for the quick reply. I was hoping to avoid a dummy vendor. This is sure a strange piece of software.
