Migration of Transaction Data from SRM 4.0 to SRM 7.0

Hi

We are upgrading from SRM 4.0 to SRM7.0.

In our old release, many Shopping Cart woul be in the status of Approved, Awaiting Approval and Held. When the same data is migrated to the SRM 7.0 Productive system, how should we take care of the same. We would continue to use the Old Workflow (Application controlled) in SRM 7.0. However we have made changes to the Workflow steps in the new system.

Alo while moving to the new SRM 7.0 Production system, how should we manage the Transactonal Data migration overall.

The client has not agreed to close the Open SC, PO or the confirmations.

Any inputs relating to the Transactional data approach would be highly appreciated.

Regards

Raj

    Hi,

    If it is normal system upgrade, you do not need any transaction data migration.

    Also workitems created before upgrade work fine after upgrade. What kind of error do you get for the old workitems?

    hi,

    If you doing a technical upgrade from SRM 4.0 to SRM 7.0 with the application controlled workflow

    there is no need to worry.

    You are going to do the upgrade in the same server whether it is Dev,Quality (or) production.

    After the upgrade is over the workflow will work perfectly

    Regards

    Masa and Ganesh,

    In SRM 7.0, only process level workflows are available and application level workflows will not work and all the work items needs to be migrated. Please give little bit more information on this.

    • Hi,

      SRM 7.0 supports both Process-Controlled Workflow and Application -Controlled Workflow. Most of customers who upgrade from old version can use Application-Controlled Workflow without any change.

    Masa,

    Thanks for the clarification. Can you correct me for the below

    !. If we do a technical upgrade, all old application workflows are still supported and there is no need for running the two SAP provided reports to migrate the work items.

    2. In case of the technical upgrade, after go live is it advisable to eventually transfer the worklows to process based workflows in order to enhance the system flexibility. If that is the case, can we run both the workflows for some period of time. Please provide your thoughts on this

    3. If we do a upgrade(not pure techinical) from 4 to 7, we can only implement process level based workflow and we have to use migration reports to trasnfer the start conditions and work items.

    Please give your thoughts and thanks in advance

      Hi Masa

      All said and done we have lot of issues with regard to the data migration. The issues are as below:

      1. The POWL doesn't reflect the old data at all in the Upgraded system. I was expecting the "Check Status" functionality to be integrated with POWL so that all the existing Shopping Cart and Purchaser Orders could be seen and the follow on actions could be taken.

      2. I am not able to do a generic search on "Advanced Search". For example if I try to Search on the old Shopping Carts, until and unless I give the specific Shopping Cart number, the Search doesn't yield any output.

      3. Since POWL doesn't reflect the exisitng Shopping Cart we are not able to proceed ahead with them to create the Follow On documents like Confirmation.

      4. The Work Flow in the new system remains Application Controlled only. However we have added few extra steps. The existing "Awaiting Approval" Shopping Carts is not picking up the workflow correctly in the new system.

      Any ideas about the same?

      Regards
