Purpose

Note:

This report is only relevant if you want to use the functions for managing standard product classifications on the buy side and on the sell side. You can enable these functions in Customizing by activating the corresponding Customizing switches.

Important:

You have to run this report afteractivating the Customizing switch Enable Managing Standard Product Classifications (SLC_SPC_MGT) in the buy-side system, but beforeactivating it in the sell-side system.

As of SAP Supplier Lifecycle Management 2.0 SP04, the logic of assigning standard product classifications to suppliers has changed as follows:

  • Multiple assignments of standard product classifications to a supplier are no longer possible.
  • Only the lowest level of a standard product classifications hierarchy can be assigned to suppliers.
  • On the buy side, a standard product classification can only be assigned to suppliers if the following applies:
  • The standard product classification has been assigned to a purchasing category.

  • The standard product classification has been published on the sell side.

You use this report to correct assignments that have become invalid due to the changed logic. The report deletes the invalid assignments and replaces them by valid assignments, if applicable. Afterwards, the report replicates the corrected assignments to the sell side.

The report performs the following changes:

  • It deletes duplicate assignments.
  • It deletes assignments of standard product classification nodes that are not on the lowest level of the hierarchy and assigns the lowest-possible published nodes instead.
  • It deletesassignments of standard product classifications that have not been published to the sell side.

Note that suppliers will be notified by e-mail if they are affected by any changes performed by this report.

Integration

Prerequisites

  • You have been assigned the role Technical Role with Authorization to Start Reports in SAP SLC (/SRMSMC/REPORT_EXEC_ADMIN), and you are authorized to process the objects and data handled by the reports. Some of the reports additionally check the start authorizations for the relevant ICF services that process the same data as the report. This is to ensure that the user is experienced in handling the data affected by the report and is aware of its effects.
  • The authorization SLCWDBPM is assigned to the ICF service Supplier Maintenance for SLC.
  • You have activated the Customizing switch Enable Managing Standard Product Classifications (SLC_SPC_MGT) on the buy side of SAP SLC. You do this in Customizing for SAP Supplier Lifecycle Management under Buy Side → Purchasing Categories → Standard Product Classifications and Master Categories → Enable Managing Standard Product Classifications.
  • All standard product classifications assigned to purchasing categories must have been published before you execute this report. This must be done by a category manager in the Purchasing Categories POWL, using the button Publish Standard Product Classifications.
  • To prevent locking issues, ensure that no changes to suppliers are made while the report is running.
