Restrict contact from replicating from C4C to ERP


Hello all

We have a requirement to enable business partner replication bi-directional between C4C and ERP with the contact master data kept distinct.

From ERP to C4C we have achieved it by suppressing the mapping and setting the @contactPersonListCompleteTransmissionIndicator to false in the iflow.

We are now struggling to find a similar way out for the C4C to ERP scenario. Since the @contactPersonListCompleteTransmissionIndicator is only an indicator and not mapped to any field on the ERP side. And also because there doesn’t seem to be a field like that on the ERP side, we made a shot in the dark by simple removing the mapping for contact persons and un-deploying the BusinessPartnerContactAddressReplication from C4C to ERP. Result: change on account in C4C is saved, it does not carry any contact information into ERP, so far so good, but as a side effect all existing contacts in ERP are deleted.

Can you suggest anyway to handle this requirement: simply keep ERP and C4C Contact masater data mutually exclusive.

I have reviewed the KBA:

and the blog ERP to C4C Integration Checklist for Customer Projects

both of which touch the ERP to C4C scenario but not the other way around.

Appreciate your inputs.
