2834747 - Central Requisitioning address errors

Symptom

You have a Central Requisitioning scenario in place. When you create a Purchase Requisition in the Hub system you are receiving errors related to address data. For example, errors "Enter a valid Postal Code" or "Enter a valid Region Code" may be raised.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud All versions

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Central Requisitioning HUB scenario
  2. Open the APP Create Purchase Requisition 
  3. Enter a Material and Quantity and choose add to cart
  4. Enter the shopping cart and navigate to the item address details.
  5. You receive errors like, "Enter a valid Postal Code" or "Enter a valid Region Code" 

Cause

Purchase Requisitions are created in the S/4Hana HUB system, using the address master data of the connected system. The default address information for the Purchase Requisition is therefore retrieved from the plant address of the connected ECC System. If you have different postal codes or region codes definited in the 2 systems, you will run into errors in the Hub System, where the entries are not known and therefore not valid entries.

Note: This also applies to other attributes of the address.  

Resolution

The invalid entries have to be manually corrected during the Purchase Requisition create procedure, in line with the master data of the Hub system. 
Currently, there is no mechanism to handle these master data differences, valid codes have to be entered by the user. SAP Development are looking at approaches for a permanent resolution to this issue. It is not possible to provide any deliverable timeline for a resolution.
