Link between BP Contact Person and contact person in SD in S/4 HANA setup

Dear Gurus,

With Business Partners becoming mandatory in S/4 HANA 1511 onwards, we have to create customer / vendors including customer contacts as business partner.

Taking particular case of contact person as business partner; system is in parallel updating contact person in SD table KNVK table with a different number. While we are supposed to work in BP setup, unfortunately while maintaining the customer partner functions system is still looking for number as updated in SD tables (KNVK).

I am struggling to establish the link between BP number and customer contact number in SD.

Please share your inputs as to how we can link the BP partner number with SD customer contact number.

    Hello Jayesh,

    Do you mean how to keep the same number on customer as well as on BP? If so, you can do by keeping customer number range as external.

    Please try and let us know if that works.

    Hi Jayesh,

    Due to the special data model for BP and Customer, the contact person for a BP is a business partner, but the contact person for a customer is just a field in customer.

    A single contact person BP can be assigned to multiple accounts as a contact through the multiple contact person relationships. But 1:N mapping of contact to customer is not allowed in customer data model. So the number for the BP contact and customer contact could not be the same.

    If you want to find the link between them, you could check in table CVI_CUST_CT_LINK.

    Best regards,

    Julin Xin
