Defining a Partner (Direct Inbound Processing)

Prerequisites

You must have completed the required steps in Defining and Using a Basic Type .

Procedure

The new basic type must be entered in the partner profiles before being used. In inbound processing, define the new process code for inbound processing and exception handling for the basic type.

For more information about the procedure, see: Partner Profiles in the Standard Dialog

 

In the example, you should maintain the following fields in the inbound partner profiles (general header entries must exist):

Field

Value

Partner number

TESTCUST

Partner type

KU

Partner function

SP

Message type

TESTER

Permitted agent

Your SAP user, type US (individual user), language EN

Process code

TESTINB

Consider the following graphic, which shows what you have defined and the subsequent effect on inbound processing.

The key fields are shown in gray with the assignments made by the SAP system indicated by arrows. The field definitions shown here result from development of the new basic type and its imbedding in inbound processing. Since you cannot configure the client, this key field is not shown here.
