We have below query, if SES approver can be mapped in Ariba Network, I saw below information from CIG overview guide and it is saying that the approver field has a limit of 14 characters. We need to map this field into AN, so that it flows automatically when the supplier creates the service entry sheet and in ECC it should be mapped to a standard SAP field in the SES document. Where is the SES Approver field picked from in AN as of now? Can it be picked from a custom PO field? Can it be populated in ECC and just show as a value in Ariba Network?
Let me know if you have clarifications. Thanks.
Approver field on SES is here when supplier submits the document is here:
As you can see it is blank and expects some values. There is no validation on these fields.
If you are asking if it is possible to map/copy a requester/approver from PO custom field to SES - it may be possible.
But SES customisations are outside of DSN standard offering. You need to scope additional services from SAP to implement such a logic.
Last question I have for you.. PO reference number is send in SES message to SAP.
Cant you implement custom logic to pick up the approver from the PO in SAP?
