      Hello Jain,

       

      For the above error, please check in the config path

      Step 3 above

      Cross-Application Components >Master Data Synchronization >Synchronization Control > SynchronizationControl >Synchronization Objects whether the customer has been checked as platform.

       

      If this setting is not there then you need to maintain this.

       

      Let me know if this solved your error.

    Hi guys – does any of you have experience in setting up the customer to BP sync when the number range for customers is created as Internal and the same number range for BPs is already in use and created as External?

    Hope to hear from you

    Thanks
