Service hierarchy for SRM-MDM catalogi scenario


We tried setting up the 'new' SRM-MDM service hierarchy catalogi. I've looked over some sdn threads already and read the SAP help . Both told me the service hierarchy should work in the SRM 'bidding/RFx' scenario. Since service hierarchy should work for RFx we continued trying setting it up but ran into the following problem:

Up on opening our service hierarchy catalogi it returns the following message 'Table is empty' and does not show us any items(mss hierarchy is enabled in the SRM-MDM UI configuration for this catalogi). If we change thé UI setting to 'products' the items do show-up in a 'flat' manner (without hierarchy).

- We've set up grouping in the SRM-MDM catalogi for these items

- We've set up an entry in the MSS hierarchy lookup table and assigned this entry some of the catalogi items

- We've not setup any MSS Hierarchy price

- We've setup the item types, the outline item is of type 'MSS header' the subtypes are of type 'Free Text' and the MSS hierarchy entry is of type 'MSS header' aswell.

- we've setup the hierarchy manually with testdata via the important manager (no pi/ix).

Could anybody confirm service hierarchy works in the RFx scenario (mss hierarchy enabled)? Is there something we've missed or are forgetting? Any other pointters are greatly appreciated.

Kind regards,

    You can transfer Service Hierarchy items to RFx.

    Have you transfered MSS from ERP via MECCM transaction?

    Please make sure the catalog type is Service in UI configuration.
