Reproducing the Issue

  • Create your own new warehouse following the Warehouse Setup Guide:
    1. Create New Storage Location copying pre-shipped storage location for warehouse with pattern "**5W"
    2. Create an Internal Warehouse Number
    3. Assign the Internal Warehouse Number to the Storage Location
    4. Create a Warehouse
    5. Assign Warehouse Number from Logistic Execution to Warehouse Number from Warehouse Management
    6. Define Warehouse Attributes
    7. Set Warehouse Address
  • Note Storage Types S001, SB01, SF01 and SG01 were not created


  • Standard behavior


  • All warehouses will have the following Storage Types created by standard:
    • S105 - Production Supply
    • S840 - Scrapping Zone
    • S910 - Goods Receipt
    • S915 - Goods Receipt from Production
    • S920 - Goods Issue
    • S970 - Clarification Zone
  • The other storage types (S001 - Storage, SB01 - Bulk Storage, SF01 - Fixed Bin Storage and SG01 - General Storage) are provided as template for customers to decide which template to copy from during creation of their own storage types to allow different storage strategies according to their warehouse layout
  • If you need, for example, fixed bin storage in your warehouse, you must create a new storage type copying pre-shipped storage type SF01 from the already existing template warehouse in the system
