The migration of BOM in the S/4HANA System is intended to create a BOM. In case there is an associated Engineering Change Number, the creation will proceed with it.

This means that we are only looking for creation scenarios and not maintenance data, i.e. we will not be considering data which has changed over time via multiple Engineering Change Numbers (header or item) and therefore have multiple instance existence in the source system.

All maintenance after a first time creation will only happen from S/4 systems.

This also means "valid from and valid to" will be set to the item according to header validity and only one instance of the item will be migrated as per the header validity .

Hence these fields are opened for header and not for items.
