SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

Go to Business Configuration work center.

Go to Overview view.

Find and Select activity the Migration of Open Sales Orders Activity.

Select Migrate open sales orders using the migration tool via the hyperlink.

You can also > Download Migration template.

In the Migration Template the field 'Labor Resource', 'Supplier', 'Ship-From' or Fulfillment (external/internal) is not available.


The migration of items with external fulfillment is currently not supported.

A labor resource is a mandatory field only for item type 'Service fixed price without actuals' and fulfillment type 'Internal'. Since the Labor Resource field is currently not available you need to ensure that you maintain a service performer and the labor resource is automatically determined via the service performer.


We do not currently have the possibility of migrating supplier at item level and hence no way to set the fulfillment as external. The idea of migration generally is that it is all the tasks have already been performed in the legacy system and that there is no pending task on them.
