The P2P shopping basket provides improved support for determining the supplier and purchasing category based on the data provided by the external webshop's OCI inbound message. The supplier is determined based on the DUNS number. The purchasing category is determined based on the classification code and standard. The supplier and purchasing category are shown in the shopping basket.
Setup in the P2P system:
A. To use the purchasing categories determined by the product classification/commodity codes provided in the external webshop's OCI inbound message:
B. To use the supplier determined by the DUNS number provided in the external webshop's OCI inbound message:
The P2P shopping basket uses primarily the information provided in the external webshop's OCI inbound message to determine the purchasing category and supplier. The cross-reference lists are used in the P2P shopping basket so that the classification code of the product in the external webshop's OCI inbound message, in the NEW_ITEM_EXT_SCHEMA_TYPE and NEW_ ITEM_EXT_CATEGORY_ID fields, is mapped to the purchasing category based on the cross-reference source and target codes.
The supplier is determined by the DUNS number defined in the OCI inbound message, the NEW_ITEM_VENDOR field, if the same DUNS number is defined in the P2P Administration supplier data.
If the required product classification code and supplier DUNS number are not defined in the P2P system, the shopping basket checks these from the external webshop's configuration. If the purchasing category and supplier are not defined there either, the user needs to manually enter those on the purchase requisition.
With the correct settings, the products from the external webshops can automatically have the correct purchasing category and supplier information on the purchase requisition even if products are from multiple purchasing categories and/or from multiple suppliers.
