2456989 - Error Message "GTIN XYZ already exists in material DEF"


You are replicating Materials from an External System to Cloud for Customer and system throws below error message,

GTIN XYZ(GTINID) already exists in material DEF(MaterialID).


Cloud for Customer Integration


The GTIN number is unique to a Material and it should not be duplicated.

A same GTIN number cannot be used more than once, this also means that within the same Material you cannot have same GTIN with different Quantity Type.

Note: Also make sure whether you are entering the valid GTIN numbers for the Materials because system will check whether GTIN is valid as per the standards.


The system is working as expected. Kindly remove the deplicate GTINs being replicated from external system.
