This new report should help customers/partners/consultants/AIS colleagues to check if the CAR system is set up correctly for OAA (e.g. after installation or upgrade) from a technical and business-related perspective.
If the checks are failing you’ll get a dedicated error message how to solve the detected error.
OAA tables in SAP CAR
OAA/NET_NW resp. /OAA/NET_NWS
list of eligible sources (DCs, stores, vendors) in a sourcing network

Sales Channel > assign sourcing network to Sales Channel
via SAP Fiori app "Manage Sales Channels"
OAA “Sales Channel Mode” vs “OAA Profile Mode”
ALWAYS use the "Sales Channel Mode"! This mode was introduced with SAP CAR 3.0 and the successor of the OAA profile mode
The Sales Channel mode offers intuitive FIORI apps in SAP CAR to configure sources, sourcing networks, sales channels and sourcing strategies.
The "old" OAA profile mode doesn't provide OAA sourcing configuration by UI, only in customizing tables (which need to be transported from the dev system)
