The standard SAP Best practices scope item 5D2 is not compatible with the ‘classic’ Intercompany processes if you strictly apply the configuration provided by SAP Best Practices. If you choose not to include our service options VP01, VP06, and/or VP07, you can activate 5D2 yourself based on the setup guide provided by SAP Best Practices. The basic configuration for 5D2 is included in our standard scope.

Service Option [VP01] enables both scenarios 5D2 (adapted to EML) and IC21 – Intercompany sales with and without VSiT. With our FPS01 (April) release of EML, it is now possible to use both scenarios in parallel based on a new item category that we added.

In our previous 2022 FPS00 (March 2023) release of EML it was not possible to run both in parallel, as both are triggered by the same combinations of sales order type / item category. We provide documentation that guides you in activating 5D2 (for example in a second client), but also how to switch back to IC21. If both processes are required, additional configuration is required.
