    Once you searched shopping cart item and add to workarea

    now the cart is in BUYER CONTROL

    buyer can do any thing

    click the VENDOR button or PROPOSE source of supply to get fixed vendors and once you selected a vendor you can create follow on document for this cart

    Let me know your version SRM& sp ?

    • Scenario is as below :

      1.Create a Shopping Cart(SC) by taking an item from a catalog.

      2.The catalog item comes with no supplier assigned or the supplier coming from the catalog has been removed from the SC which is possible.

      3.Now the SC is available in Sourcing Cockpit. Purchaser selects the SC in step 1(Select Requisition) and moves to Step 2(Assign Source of Supply). In Step 2, because the SC item originated from a catalog, even though there is no supplier assigned, in step 2, the supplier number field is not editable. Because of this no Source of Supply(SOS) can be assigned to SC item

      Is it applicable for you? Note 1474103 - SOCO:Supplier editable for catalog item with null supplier

    Hi Shiva,

    Does that role has the 'FIXED_SUP' authorization checked for the auth object 'BBP_FUNCT'?

    Also please check with technical guys if they have modified any config settings to disable that button..

    Regards

      Hi

      Just i started the dev box SRM 7.0 with Portal , got all the sufficient roles , trying with only operational purchaser Role and as well as ST_Purchaser, Manager , employee roles & sap_all . There is no Technical modification no involvement of ABAP. By having all the roles, when i go to sourcing, the Assign Supplier button is disabled and unable to complete the SC convertion to PO.
