3420106 - Import Addresses on SAP Ariba Procurement


For PeopleSoft and Generic, your configuration must include a standard set of shipping and billing addresses. The Import Addresses data import task defines shipping and billing addresses. It reads data from the CSV file named Address.csv. 

For SAP, Import Addresses can be used to import generic addresses from SAP back-end systems that can be used as shipping and billing addresses. You can also import nonstandard addresses created by your users in the SAP back-end systems to avoid creating the same nonstandard addresses in SAP Ariba Procurement solutions. The imported nonstandard addresses will be available only to the users who created them. Each address imported by this task will be associated with a specific company code. After you import the addresses, and they are available in your SAP Ariba Procurement solutions, you must run the Import Plant to Purchase Organization Mapping task to map the addresses to the corresponding purchasing organizations. This ensures the imported addresses can be used when creating approvable documents. Alternatively, you can contact SAP Ariba Customer Support to enable a parameter that will ensure the imported addresses can be used without running the Import Plant to Purchase Organization Mapping task. 

You associate users with default shipping addresses in the file SharedUserShipToAddressMap.csv.

Note: For sites enabled to support India goods and services tax (GST) on approvables, you can use this task to define the state code for an address.
