3097002 - Regarding BP role "CRM010" in ECC and S/4HANA TM integration with BP Replication


In SAP TM solution, there’s a BP role – CRM010 (carrier) that only exists in TM system. In previously, TM is SCM server based and the BP master data is transferred via CIF function from ERP to TM.

Since TM solution has migrated to S/4HANA now. When customer is still using side-by-side scenario and the landscape is like ERP v.s. S/4HANA TM, DRF has to be used to replicate the BP master data.

Then the questions came to us as the following:

Approach 1: Should we add this role to the BP in ECC when we convert our TSP vendors to BP using CVI and then send this TSP BP to S/4 using DRF?

Approach 2: Completely ignore the addition of the BP role CRM010 in ECC, converting the TSP Vendors to BP only with the roles 000000, FLVN00 and FLVN01 and then send the BP to S/4HANA via DRF. In this approach we would have to add the CRM010 role to the BPs in S/4HANA TM manually. This approach will be cumbersome if there are large number of TSP BPs involved in the S/4HANA system. Adding them manually one by one would not be the ideal approach and it would lead to lots of sync issues if someone forgets to add it to particular BP.
