Supplier Registration Query (ROS)


We are implementing Supplier Registration (ROS) using standard process:

1. Supplier registers and completes questionaire

2. Supplier is accepted or rejected in ROS client

3. Accepted suppliers are transferred into SRM client from ROS client (supplier directory)

My query is.. we use SRM extended classic. I therefore need transferred suppliers to also exist as vendors in ERP.

As I understand there is no way of transferring a supplier from SRM to ERP (please correct me if wrong).

The only workaround I have is to manually create the vendor in ECC following the transfer of supplier from ROS to SRM and then to reference the vendor master number and system in the supplier record in SRM. This is not ideal.

I'm aware of the new business function in SRM 7.01 - Supplier Collaboration (SRM_SUCO_1) but I wondered if anyone had experience of resolving this issue without using SRM_SUCO_1.

Many thanks

    Hi James,

    I have investigated this issue and there is no way to replicate

    the vendors from SRM to R/3.

    In BBPMAININT you can edit the vendor that has been created in SRM

    using ROS and Link it to a backend system vendor.

    or you can use BBP_UPDATE_MAPPING and link a backend vendor to

    a vendor BP in SRM.

    The bbp_supp_moni is only relevant for vendors in SRM that have

    originally been created in R/3 and replicated to SRM.

    Then, if the vendors are changed in SRM using BBPMAININT, the changes

    can be sent back to the R/3 system via this transaction.

    Note 754154 is used when data was changed in the SRM server,

    the change had to be manually in the corresponding R/3 Backend system

    afterwards. Now all R/3 Backend system-relevant changes of the vendor

    master data are displayed in the vendor monitor in the SRM server.

    For the change entry in the monitor, a symbol is activated for the transfer

    of the vendor data under certain conditions. If this symbol is activated and if you click this,

    an XI message is sent to the corresponding R/3 Backend system and the

    clicked change entry is deleted from the monitor.

    -The symbol for the transfer of the vendor data is only activated if:

    o the XI (Exchange Infrastructure) flag in SRM is activated in


    o the vendor was replicated from an R/3 Backend system and has a

    link to this R/3 Backend system in SRM.

    -. Supplier Relationship managment > SRM Server > Technical

    Basic Settings > Define backend systems >

    maintain value for system landscape directory name'.

    I hope this helps you to understand the issue.

    Kind Regards,

    It would be worthwhile to investigate the SUPPLY_BASE_MANAGEMENT scenario in XI/PI to achieve your objective of replicating vendors into ECC.
