    SAP CRM Business Partner Relationship Categories

    If you go to the relationship tab in the SAP CRM Business Partner ( BP ), you will find that there

    are one or more tabs with different partners associated via different relationships with the main

    BP. The closest you can compare to the Customer master in SAP SD is Partner Functions butthis is different. For more, please visit ourSAP CRM Trainingpage.

    Example, a BP can have the following relationships.

    BP 4151651. has End Customer Friedrich Newbauer ( 531 )

    2. has Contact Person Cheryl Anderson ( 408787 )

    Each of the tabs ( Has End Customer , Has Contact Person ) are called Relationship Categories.

    These are freely configurable.

    To create a new Relationship, select the right relationship category ( For example, if you want tocreate a new Contact Person, select Has Contact Person ) and click on the Relationship to

    BP field and select the right Contact Person and click on the Create button.

    If additional details were requested, fill them up and your new contact person should be created.

    Configuration :

    The menu path for configuring already created BP Relationship Configuration is at [ spro-> IMG

    -> Cross Application Components -> SAP Business Partner -> BP Relationships ]

    Go to Properties of BP Relationship Categories to see the different relationship categories,select the Relationship Category BUR001 Contact Person Relationship for example and double

    click on it.

    In the details section, you can see that you can do the following.

    1. Click on the Hide checkmark to hide it from the standard dropdown in the Relationship

    Categories section of the BP Relationship view.

    2. You can change the Title that shows up in the Tab

    This part is a little tricky and can be left out if desired. This is actually an SAP Easy Access

    Transaction [ BUPT ] Once you are in, go to Relationship Categories or [ BUBA ]

    Here you can select the right relationship category that you want to copy from and create yourown. Try and avoid creating BP Relationship categories from scratch in yourSAP CRM

    Training. Its an overkill.

    I created a copy of my own ( by copying from the standard BUR001 Contact Person relationship

    category ) and named it ZBUR09 to represent the Credit Representative relationship. We will

    go through some important fields here.

    Descriptions : The descriptions that should appear in the BPs relationship view should be

    specified here. We already discussed in the class what the views represent.

    Cardinality : The BP Relationships cardinality ( How many Credit Reps per Account for

    example ) can be configured in the semantics section. You can leave it blank if you do not want

    to impose any constraints.

    BP Relationship Possibilities : In this case you define who the first partner can be and who the

    second partner should be. For example in case of Has Contact Person relationship, the rule

    here says Only a BP of BP Category Person can be associated as a Contact Person to the firstBP. The same can be extended to Credit Representative.

    Results : As you can see from the picture now, the BP relationship category Has Credit

    Representative is showing up in the BP Relationship view.

    We have specified in the BP Categories section of the BP Relationship categories config that thePartner 2 only needs to be a BP category of person. So, if you try to add any other BP category,

    15/15

    you will get an error.

    Exercises :

    Define a new Relationship Category Credit Controller as follows.

    1. The Credit Controller is always a Person

    2. There is NO reverse for it. ( Like, NO credit controlled by relationship)

    3. Let the title of this relationship category tab say Credit Control
