As a supplier using SAP S/4HANA Cloud, you can set up the integration with external buyers.

The integration of sales orders with external buyers allows suppliers and buyers to exchange documents by using Web services based on the SOAP protocol. This enables increased automation, higher efficiency, and reduced cycle times for sales.

The following video tutorial shows you how to set up the integration with external buyers, using sales order inbound service OrderRequest_In as an example. It presents a step-by-step example that includes how to set up communication, how to perform configuration steps, and how to maintain customer materials.

After integration and EDI is set up, you can receive the purchase orders sent from the external buyer’s system, and automatically trigger the creation, change, and cancellation of sales orders in your system.
