Manage Business Partner functionality in SRM 7

Hi,

I am sure few of us must be using SRM7 by now. Can you please check and let me know whether you can use Manage Business Parter functionality in SRM7 or not?

If yes then please share the SRM as well as portal role.

We would like to remove supplier tag for one of our business partner.

Regards,

Sandeep Parab

    Hi Sandeep,

    You need to have SRM administrator role to get access to manage supplier.

    Go to External Business partner query - supplier, select the vendor and click edit.

    Thanks,

    Hello Sandeep,

    did you find a solution? I'm using ROS and SRM in one client. I want to transfer the accepted supplier from ROS to SRM using the same business partner number. Is it possible?

    Regards,

      Sven,

      Yes it is possible to transfer the Accepted suppliers from ROS to EBP when ROS and EBP are on same client. However there are some limitations as mentioned in the OSS note 573383. XI is not required as per OSS note 1134978. I raised this issue to sap and sap recommends separating clients. So now we are going with separate client for ROS and EBP.

      To change the transferred supplier status to Released you need to check the portal vendor check box while creating the supplier. If the supplier is transferred via supplier directory then system does not automatically update the portal vendor check box. You can open the supplier in edit mode and update it.

      I did implement OSS note 1404217, but it didnu2019t work for me.

      However the limitation with single client is that the supplier directory option always transfers the supplier as supplier and bidder. Which means it does not give option to transfer the business partner only as bidders. The way Manage business partner use to give in SRM 5.

      Refer to my to set the EBP system as EBP_SUS then only the business partner are transferred from ROS to EBP.

      ROS & EBP one client: Unable to trf accepted supplier from ROS to EBP

      Hope I answer all your answers.

    Hello Sandeep,

    my problem is, that I get an error messase "BP number already exisits". If I clear the corresponding field, I can save the BP.

    But the BP gets another number than in ROS.

    I think, if I separate the clients it will work. But in our test environment I would like to use only one client.

    Regards,

    Sven

      Sven,

      In case of ROS and EBP on same client, make sure that the SRM system is defines as EBP_SUS and not LOCAL.

      With suppliers directory option system should transfer BP from ROS to EBP with same BP.

      But if you try to create it via 'Add external supplier' from Create Supplier, it will issue error message business partner already exist due to single business partner.

      That is the reason why we moved to two client scenario.

      I think its a limitation with single client implementation.

    Hello Sandeep,

    what do you mean by "With suppliers directory option system should transfer BP from ROS to EBP with same BP".

    Where can I find this option? How does it works? Where can I find the customizing?

    Regards,

    Sven
