Reproducing the Issue

Try to upload customer master data with sales partners information using the SAP Migration Cockpit.


There are two typical root causes for this issue:

1, Language dependent partner function name (SP, SH, PY, BP or ER) is used instead of language independent name (AG, WE, RG, RE or ZM).

2, "Sales Partner" sheet of  template is filled, but with only one mandatory partner function.


1, Read the actual tooltip of the column header "Partner Function" in the migration template:

Tooltip of Partner Function

2, Need to provide all mandatory partner functions or none.

2a, Leave the "Partner Function" sheet empty. In this case as described in the Mapping Instructions:
"The mandatory partner functions will be created automatically with the same customer number."

2b, Provide all mandatory partner functions (RE, RG, WE and AG) with the same customer number.
