Master Data

When Buyer tenants are configured to use Supplier Qualifications, those organizations can require that some of these Master Data elements be captured by Suppliers during their qualification process. Master data categories are used to group the supplier master data fields on the supplier qualification form.

Master data displays on the first page of each Supplier Qualification form the supplier completes. A separate master data item is created for each piece of information. Examples of information that might be considered master data are: legal entity name, address, country, and insurance information.

Master Data is entered by suppliers on the Supplier Qualification Form.

Navigating the Master Data Admin Object

Select the Master Data admin object from the Configuration section of the admin menu to view a list of master data entries associated to WorkingNet’s tenant.

Create Master Data

WorkingNet requires a Company Code value to be tracked across their Supplier population.

To capture the Company Code for each supplier, you, as the SAP Fieldglass administrator for WorkingNet, will create a new Master Data object called Company Code to be used when they qualify new suppliers.
