Unique SOS is not assiged to the Shopping Cart

Dear Experts,

We use classic scenario on SRM 5.0 with MDM-SRM catalog.

We do not upload the vendors and the contracts to the MDM.

When I create SC and pick from the catalog product that assign to one unique ECC contract I expect that this contract will assigned as source of supply automatically.

From some reason the contract arrives to the SC as SOS but not assigned automatically.

Does anybody know whether by standard the system assigns the source of supply automatically when it is unique? (we want to avoid uploading vendors to the catalog).

Thanks & Regards,

    so your catalog initially doest not bring the vendor information too butdo you want to use contract

    1505034 - Unique SOS is not assiged to the Shopping Cart


    Either the catalog has to be updated with the vendor ID in order that the OCI field NEW_ITEM-VENDOR is sent to the Shopping Cart

    Why you are ordering from catalog. better you can order from internal goods and services since you have valid contract.

    Hi Keren

    This is a standard feature in SRM that - Whenever you buy a free text Item or a product for which there is a valid ECC Contract in backend system, SRM Proposes that SOS in the Shopping cart automatically. If there are multiple Contracts or SOS for that product or product category, SRM proposes the list in the source of supply section where you make your selection accordingly.

    When we buy from Catalogs, SRM Expects the vendor to come from Catalog. In this case, system expects the vendor to come from catalog. Recommended solution is to have your vendor and ECC Contract reference in your MDM Catalog record so that system can pull that information into the SC when you add an item to the cart.

    Otherwise, try this - Try manually clearing the Catalog ID field in the Shopping cart after the item is added to the cart, in that case this item will behave as free text cart and ECC SOS should appear in your cart.

      Dear Experts,

      Thanks for your answers!

      The standard behavior works with assiging unique SOS automatically with no need to upload vendors to the catalog !!

      The problem occured due to mismatch of when the system check the available SOS.

      We soled it by using BADI bbp_pgrp_find to find the required backend purchasing group on time.
