Lately, we have received queries on single supplier having multiple contact person belonging to different sales orgs who raises Purchase Orders in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

In this blog post, we shall see how to set-up the use case in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Step 1: Login to SAP S/4HANA Cloud system with user: BUPA_MASTER_SPECIALIST.

Step 2: Once logged in search for the app "Maintain Business Partner".


Step 3: Select the Business Partner(BP) type as Person and select the role as Contact Person.


Step 4: Add Relevant information and save the Business Partner.  Likewise, create the remaining Contact Person BPs. In my example, have created 4 contact persons for 4 different branches.


Step 5: Select the Business Partner(BP) type as Organization and select the role as Supplier. Add the relevant information and save the BP.


Step 6: Click Relationship button, Select the relationship category as "Has a Contact Person" and enter the Contact Person Business Partner in the Relationship to BP field and click Enter Button.




Step7: A pop-up window open and click Enter Button.


Step 8: The Contact Person will be added and similarly add other Contact Persons to the list. Save the Supplier BP.


Step 9: Open the Contact Person BP and click Relationship button. Go to the tab "Is the Contact Person For", you should be able to view the Supplier information.


Note: The same steps can also be followed for assigning Contact Person to Customer BP Role.


Now, you should be able to set-up a contact person for a Supplier or Customer BP role in SAP S/4HANA Cloud easily.
