    Set filter (transaction R3AC1) on material type to stop replicating service materials to CRM

      Hi Ashwini,

      Option 1# Check if events for delta are active in transaction R3AC4 for SERVICE_MASTER object and delete events if active.

      Option 2# Table CRMRFCPAR in ECC set "Discard data" flag for object SERVICE_MASTER.

    Hello ashwin iam facing similar type of issue

    Category for service category MECH does not exist

    Message no. COM_PRODUCT_API004


    Before services are imported from the SAP system, service categories must exist as categories in CRM/EBP. When the Customizing object DNL_CUST_SRVMAS is imported, the service categories are imported automatically and created under the category SRV in the category hierarchy R3PRODSTYP (product subtype).


    Check whether the service categories have been imported successfully and exist as categories.

    If necessary, import the Customizing object DNL_CUST_SRVMAS.

    Request you to provide some hints

    • Hello Chinna,

      Please run the initial load for object DNL_CUST_SRVMAS.

      Also, if you maintain the following event in TBE31 of your ECC system, please delete this entry.

      00001212        BC-MID   CRS_SERVICE_COLLECT_DATA

      Thanks and best regards,
