Hi SRM experts,
I have a small doubt for ariba catalog integration to SAP SRM. Requesting for your help.
In SRM-MDM catalog scenario, we have the steps below in brief: -
1. basic extraction of customizing data in SRM and ERP
2. other data like contracts and PIRs from ERP - MECCM t-code
3. reports in SRM for transfering products, contracts and suppliers like BBP_CCM_catalog_TRANSFER, SRMMDM_CTR_TRANSFER, ROS_SUPPLIER_SEND_TO_CATALOG.
For sending data on products, contracts and inforecords in CIF format, does SAP or Ariba provide an report/configuration in ECC/SRM to send data to Ariba catalog?
I tried out to findout, but could find most of them information on configuring catalog call structure, activities on ariba side.
Please help me in this regard.
Thanks and Regards,
As I know, if you are going to use Ariba as a punchout catalog, it could not behave the same as internal catalog for data extraction. It is more like an external catalog, and data should be maintained in external catalog separately.
However, SRM indeed is having some integration with Ariba for some functionality. For the customizing, please check the path below:
Execute transaction SPRO ->display SAP Reference IMG ->Integration with Other SAP Components ->SAP Business Suite Integration Component for Ariba ->Application-Specific Settings ->SAP SRM Integration Component for Ariba
Until now, PO creation, RFxAribaSourcing, and Rfx related functions are relevant for Ariba integration.
