May I know that Do I have to take any action if Ariba Downstream is used to create purchase orders?
Kindly share your valuable views here.
Thanks in advance.
Yes, you do. You have to adapt the classification code mapping in a BAdI. The reason is that Ariba Downstream sends the technical classification code to SAP ERP. The SAP ERP add-on maps the human-readable name of the classification code to the Ariba Network, which then performs a check against the technical code used by Ariba Downstream. To ensure this mapping works, you have to adapt it using BAdI method MAP_BUS2012_TO_ORDR_OUT. A sample implementation is attached to this note.
Ariba Downstream does not support the human-readable code; this cannot be changed for compatibility reasons.
