Some users have doubts related to "Goods recipient" search help, that is available in shopping cart. Users complain that no results are displayed.

In order to clarify this, I have decided to write this blog.

Results for "Goods recipient" search help will be populated when attribute "Requisitioner" is customized in PPOMA_BBP.

It is the same setting for "Buy on Behalf" search help.

Therefore, in order to have results in this search help, go to PPOMA_BBP and select user who is creating the cart.
Then, go to attributes tab and select "Requisitioner". Populate this field with following information:

US<USERNAME> - To have only one user name displayed in search help

O <ORGANIZATION ID> - To have the entire organization unit displayed in search help

Just pay attention that when organization ID is populated in this attribute, performance issues can occur, depending on the number of users assigned to this organization. In such case, please read note 1095895, that suggests the use of BAdI BBP_F4_READ_ON_ENTRY.

Even though description of badi BBP_F4_READ_ON_ENTRY is maintained as "obsolete" in SRM 7.0X, it is still being called from function module BBP_GET_BOBUSERS_F4.
