2992729 - Foreign Key errors during Q->P transports for SERV/MAT materials due to number range changes via SSCUI ' Define Number Ranges for Each Material Type'

Symptom


When deploying Professional Services scenarios such as J11, J13, J14, 16T, 1KC, 1MC, 2MV, 4AN, 4E9 and 3TQ via scope item activation, fine-tuned number range settings of SERV and MAT materials types in the Q-System could cause activation errors during Q2P Process.

Environment

  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • Master Data

Cause

 For Professional Services scenarios, SAP provides Material Master Data that the pre-defined material IDs can only be created if the number range settings are SAP default settings.

SAP default Material ID

MAT

SERV

L001

SERV

Each material type is linked to a number range group, which is “02” external  for SERV and MAT material type as SAP default setting.

In addition, each number range group is defined with the number range interval, which is “A – ZZZZZZZZ” for group “02” as SAP default setting. With these settings, the above listed material IDs can be created.

Resolution

Please never change the Number Range default settings in Q-System via Self Service Configuration UI and/or backend transaction before the activation of Professional Services materials has been done in Q-System and transported to P-System and activated successfully.

Any change would prevent the system from creating SAP pre-defined material IDs. Once the Q2P process are done successfully, the number range default settings can be fine-tuned as needed.
