During migration of materials via migration template, you can not get the template to generate the Purchase View for the migrated materials.

The purchasing-relevant data in the migration template, however this does not seem to automatically generate the Purchase tab for the material when you access it from the system via the "Display Material" app.

You want to know how to generate the Purchase View for materials to purchase imported materials without having to manually create the Purchase View from the system.



Reproducing the Issue

1.Migrate the materials from the attached migration file via the "Migration Tool"

2. Go to the "Display Material" app and open one of the migrated materials

3. The Purchase View is unavailable (it was not created upon creation via migration)


You have to set the material views manually for the migrated materials. You can see the related help document in the Fiori page.

There are 3 different procedures to define the maintenance status that should be available for a specific material:

1.The maintenance status will automatically be detected by the system for the fields used.

2.You, yourself define the views to be created via the Maintenance Status Settings worksheet/tab of your migration object template.

3. If you are familiar with maintenance status and the specific letters, or if the data source is an extract of a prior SAP ERP System, you can directly fill the following fields with the respective data from the SAP ERP source table’s Maintenance Status field (PSTAT). In this case, it is not necessary to maintain both the Maintenance Status Settings worksheet/tab and the Material Views source field.

There are several methods to define the views and you can choose any method as you like.
