In this blog, I like to share the SAP provided option to skip migration path for frequently used configuration tasks
like Purchase group, MRP Controller, FI period, etc.
Lets take the example of Purchase group:
Purchase group ID are assigned to Procurement individuals with some contact details, who handles Purchasing
documents. In most business cases, you may come across frequent addition/exit of buyers, changes in business
role and contact details which leads to update the Purchase group configuration most frequently.
This configuration could be done directly in PRD instead of migrating it, by activating the current setting option.
– Use transaction SOBJ
– Select the related object and activate the current settings
For Purchase group, choose V_024 and V_024_N for printer assignment to Purchase group;
– Select the config task following SPRO > MM > Purchasing > Create Purchasing group
– Menu > Edit > Display IMG Activity
It will provide us with a transaction which could be used to for direct updates. Also refer the below notes for details.
For those, who follows weekly migration where business have to wait for a week to get this change updated, it will
reduce the lead time quite substantially.
