2518765 - Automatic creation of Purchase Info record in cloud


You would like to automatically create/update purchase info records in your public cloud environment.



Reproducing the Issue

Create a Purchase Order using the webgui tile “Create Purchase Order – advanced”.


In an On-Premise environment, there are customising options available to trigger the automatic creation of purchase info records from the creation of a purchase order.
This is covered in the SAP note 202173, in the cloud environment this customising is not available and cannot be set up through a configuraton point.


  1. The feature of automatically updating/creating inforecords is also available in the cloud, in all editions except the professional services edition.
  2. This can be achieved using the “Create Purchase Order – advanced” WebGUI tile and manually setting the InfoUpdate flag at item level.

 3- Since the reelase 2202CE the BADI Modify Purchase Order Item has been enhanced.

The Business Add-In (BAdI) MM_PUR_S4_PO_MODIFY_ITEM

Using this BAdI you can now change the field Indicator: Update Info Record (PURCHASINGINFORECORDUPDATECODE). The indicator Update Info Record is an optional parameter and the available values are:


Short Description
