SRM 7 Central Confirmation Issue


We are on SRM 7.0 Classic scenario implementation how ever we have Goods Receipt done in SRM through Central Confirmation. We are 24/7 shop so someone who received goods during night shift goes in and perform Central Confirmation for the PO. Next day when PO creator who comes in and see the GR is performed but could not find out who created it.

Is there some security roles or setting which we need to do so that whenever user Search for Confirmation on his/her PO's using "Advance Search" option they should find out who received the items.

Please advise.

Thank you

    Hi Ritesh,

    As per standard system, it is not possible for End User to see the GR creator.

    There could be workaround:

    1) Assign Central confirmation Role to User, he can see the creator in field 'Created by' in POWL of Confirmation

    2) Append the structure for Confirmation by 'Created by' field(Basically modify the webdynpro component for confirmation) such that once user clicks on the confirmation number, he can see the created by field in item level/header level.

    However as a Admin user, you can see in BBP_PD t.code of SRM system.

      Hi Jeff,

      Yeah, We have defined Portal Role and Which you can find under Content Administrator --> Content Provided by SAP --> Specialist --> SRM 7.0 --> Core --> Roles --> Goods Recipient and assigned this to User.

      Also we have defined ABAP Role in which can be assigned in backend.

      The only problem we are still facing is whenever user do central confirmation for someone else PO' the other person can't find out who did the confirmation and don't show under PO creator's POWL query.

      Thank you

    By using PO number you can get the confirmation number under follow on documents or releated documents link.

    By using confirmation number (display or BBp_Pd) you can get know the creator of the confirmation.

    ON the webgui side, you can know from the header data of confirmation where user name will be available who created

    under history link or display change documents button.
