3401990 - Supplier Confirmation API For Purchase Order


Unable to retrieve the supplier confirmation data for purchase orders. Currently, SAP has provided an option which is through the Create Purchase Order - Advanced app and through Manage Supplier Confirmations.




Supplier confirmations are separate business documents besides purchase orders. The API can be used to create and change these supplier confirmations. When a supplier confirmation is created, the purchase order is updated as it is the case, when you add confirmations to a purchase order with the app “Change Purchase Order - Advanced”.

Currently, the CDS I_POSupplierConfirmationAPI01 is available to get details about confirmations of a purchase order.

There are two options to enter supplier confirmations for a purchase order.

  1. Add the information to the purchase order directly, for example with the “Change Purchase Orders - Advanced” app.
  2. Use the API CE_SUPPLIERCONFIRMATION_000 or the “Manage Supplier Confirmations” app to create a business document that is separate from the purchase order. When you create this extra document, the purchase order is also updated as this is the case for the first option, and you can see a reference to the newly created supplier confirmation in the Confirmation tab of the “Change Purchase Orders - Advanced” app.

There will be no separately created business document supplier confirmation that can be processed with the API CE_SUPPLIERCONFIRMATION_000 or the “Manage Supplier Confirmations” app when you choose option 1 to add supplier confirmations to a purchase order.
