GTS Delete invalid partner entries from SAP GTS

Once reaching to the feeder system you need to Transfer Customer\Vendor to Global Trade Services.
Once transfer is initiated we need to go to transaction /SAPSLL/PARTNER_APPL or SLG1 in the Global Trade Services system.
A relevant data needs to be entered for transferring and executing.
Log related to relevant errors need to be verified (Red Icon) for reproducing the issue
Due to inconsistency in BP master data usually these errors occurs during the transfer of business partner. Without having any corresponding entry in the BUT000 table when an entry is made in the GTS table /SAPSLL/PNTBP for the partner. To map the numbers of the business partners from the feeder system to the intial number GTS use a mapping table /SAPSLL/PNTBP. An entry is added to this table whenever business partner is created in GTS.
During the initial transfer inconsistent entries exist when a business partner is transferred to SAP GTS. SAP GTS reflects that the partner already exists in the system incorrectly recognizing them. Deleting incorrect data from the mapping table enables and will allow correctly transferring business partner to SAP GTS. To sustain successful transfer and maintain consistency all data related to such business partners should be deleted which can be present in customizing table. Audit trails, documents or custom work list.
A standard program /SAPSLL/BP_DATA_CLEANUP can be initiated and run from Global Trade Services in the transaction SE 38 which will erase the inconsistent entries.
Before running the program in the live environment and to verify the functionality well in advance. Best practice is running the program first in simulation mode by verifying simulation flag on selection screen.
Before the report erase the entries verify any dependent database table entries recognized in the report has to be archived.
Business partners should not be directly erased /deleted in Global Trade Services however they should be marked for deletion. Hence when the transfer will take place the deletion flag is taken over to Global Trade Services.
When corrupt or inconsistent data is found it should be directly deleted with the help of report mentioned above.
Functionality based on new partner archiving has been introduced in Global Trade Services.
