Mapping Supplier catalog product category with SRM product category

Hello all,

I am trying to setup SRM-Punchout catalog integration. The call structure is defined and I am able to select items from the catalog.

Now when I see the detailed view of the item in the catalog, there is no product category, however when this item is transferred to SC, the system automatically picks up some prod category (which I had replicated from ECC initialy). How does it pick up this prod categry when there is no mapping?? I wanted to know, how to map prod category in the catalog to SRM SC? (actually there is no category, so should I ask the vendor for any additional details)

I found an SPRO node: SRMu2014Master Datau2014Content Mangmntu2014Mapping for schemasu2014define assignments for imported schemas and define mapping filter rules for schemas...are they any good for mapping? Also I believe there is a BADI BBP_CATALOG_TRANSFER...could you shed some light on this too??

Regards,

Nikhil

    Hi Nikhil,

    The product category chosen in the shopping cart where none is transeffered from catalog, or if the one transferred is not valid, is selected from the user attributes in PPOMA. The logic insists that a valid category exists, so if one is not passed, it is offered from user attributes.

    Regards.

    • Hi Nikhil,

      Yes, unless your suppliers use standardized categories like those in UNSPSC (www.unspsc.org/) whereby the customizing can be then configured in SPRO for the assignment for imported schemas. But this is unlikely, it is more likely they use internal category assignment, so the Badi is the best option.
