We will use SAP Ariba SLP in the cloud connected via CIG and SAP Cloud Connector to an on premise SAP S/4 HANA RMM system.
Does SAP Ariba support or has a similar BP role concept as SAP S/4 HANA ? In SAP S/4 HANA we need to distinguish between a BP which is a full supplier and BPs which are still only bidders. In SAP S/4 HANA we could configure/use two different BP roles for this distinction. If SAP Ariba would have similar roles which are sent across the standard SAP Ariba SLP to SAP S/4 HANA interface in the BP messages we could map the SAP Ariba with the SAP S/4 HANA roles ? If in SAP Ariba roles are not used for this purpose what else is used ?
