1576873 - Is it Possible to Create More Than one Root Product Category Hierarchy?

Symptom

In the process of creating Product Category Hierarchy, you may have a requirement to create more than one Product Category Hierarchy. But after creating a single Product Category Hierarchy, you could find that the New Hierarchy button is disabled.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Product Data work center.
  2. Select Product Categories view.
  3. After creating a first Product Category Hierarchy, the New Hierarchy button is disabled.

Cause

The system works as designed.

Resolution

If you want to create more than one Product Category Hierarchy, then it is a Classification Concept but not a Category Concept. SAP Business ByDesign supports only Category Concept.  So it is not possible to create more than one Product Category Hierarchy.
