this a a short introduction about using procurement catalog in ERP MM.
you don’t need SRM for using a catalog in MM transactions ME51n, ME21n. You have to consider that you can use only one catalog. If you want to use more then one catalog you should use SRM. That’s the design
UPDATE: from EHP5 it is possible to have more than 1 catalog in MM!
-> Environment Data
-> Web Services: ID and Description you can find more detailed information about the settings in Customizing of Supplier Relationship Management (-> SRM Server -> Master Data -> Define External Web Services )
- let me explain the call structure parameter needed for the catalog (this is valid for a CCM-Catalog) :
seq.Nr name parameter value 10 http://…….. 20 SAP-LANGUAGE sy-langu 30 SAP-CLIENT xxx 40 CATALOGID (name of catalog you want to use) 50 LOCALE sy-langu 60 CCM-USER (user for logon to catalog) 70 CCM-PASSWORD (password for logon to catalog)
- You can maintain more than one WEB Services, but you have to set the ‘Default Indicator’ for one of them, otherwise you will not get any Catalog to be displayed in ME51n/ME21n.
- is it possible to use Multiple catalog in MM?
by default not, but take a look into Function Module MMPUROCI_CALL. There is a coding here for calling more than one catalog, but it is inactive.
An activation would be a modification w/o warranty…
So, i hope it will helps you a bit
