Hi All,


We do the following in SRM side

1.set up channel for ext requirements

2.Asign RFC user

3.Assign Local Pgoup(Local) as responsible for this channel.

If PR in back end is having Pgroup 010 and when we run bbp_extreq_transfer. what Pgroup is external requirement is created with and how Eternal requirent (SC) picks the Pgroup.

Does it have local purchasing group or Backend purchasing group.

When this SC is in sourcing sockpit which buyer is responsible for the SC? Local Pgroup or Backend Pgroup?

Hi Abdul,

When doing external requirement scenario PDP, creating PR in ERP and sending to EBP system the purchase group in ERP will only be picked in the Shopping cart if -

1.     The ERP purchase group is maintained in EBP system

If the ERP purchase group is not maintained then by default the Shopping cart will take the 1st Purchase group maintained in the Org structure in the shopping cart. it will ignore ERP purchase group.

Hence, it will always pick purchase group from the EBP system -

1. if ERP Pgroup found in EBP - same will be displayed in EBP SC.

2. if ERP Pgroup not found in EBP - then the Pgroup maintained at the 1st position in the Organizational structure will be picked by default.

Hope this will answer your quesry.

HI Abdul  / RBEI SRM

May I ask for your help here I am trying to setup a PDP scenario and when in the PR and the SC different pur org are being picked up Please could you explain the reason for the behavior ?

For example : I maintained in ECC pR pur grp as 100 and in the SRM it is picking up a random Pur group as P12

I also checked this has got nothing to do with Category ID as in the product responsibility it says product category as asterix for both .

Also I have assigned the RFC user under the root org structure 

Please could some one help me understand how to ensure the Pur grp should be the same
Any help would be much appreciated .

Buyer is selected as per EBP Pur Group. In general EBP organization structure is mirror of ECC.
