2332637 - Blocked Supplier is Active for Purchase Contract Creation and Active for Sourcing


You are creating a new purchasing contract for supplier ABC however this supplier is blocked for purchasing in the supplier master data. Even so, during the purchase contract creation, the blocked supplier is active and available for sourcing.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sourcing & Contracting work center
  2. Go to the Common Tasks view
  3. Select New Contract
  4. In the Supplier field, enter the blocked Supplier ABC
  5. The Supplier ABC is active for Sourcing


System is behaving as designed.


The functionality will be available in one of the future releases of SAP ByDesign. In later releases blocked suppliers will not be active for sourcing during purchase contract creation.
