how to release product to other legal entity keeping the same setup like unit, counting group ..

Posted on by 312

dear All experts:

I am using ax 2012 CU9 and just created a new legal entity.

When I released some products to it, almost all setups not in Inventtable were missing.

Could you tell me is there a way to carry these setup as  the original company(for example: unit)?

and other setups can be pre-defined (ex: Default order setting) .

Thank you all in advance!

    When you Add product entity in your data management project 》Copy into Legal entity , In the Grid there is a filter option (glass icon). Did you click on it and check field name "Item Group"

    Common item groups means Company A (IG1,IG2,IG3) and CompanyB (IG1,IG2,IG3)? If so. Yes. But when you create copy batch job, it seems there is no options let you choose which Item Groups want to copy. All you can do is to copy all (IG1, IG2, IG3)

    Yes.

    First update IG1 item groups products attributes/information to company B.

    Once all IG1 products attributes/information are updated in company B then start with IG2 products.

    I am assuming you have common Item Groups in your all companies. Is my assumption correct?

    Hi, Junaid:

    Sorry, but I don't get it. If we had 3 item groups (IG1,IG2,IG3) in A company,. Can I copy only group IG1  to company B? thanks.

    I will suggest you to update these details for respective company separately to ensure the data integrity and consistency. I am sure you must be having item groups in your all legal entities.

    Hi,  Junaid:

             thank you so much for the quick reply!  one  question. How can I choose which item group I want to be copy when I create the  "COPY Entity data between company" batch job? I  didn't see any configurations to do that.

    Hi Quatrani,

    When product count is huge like you have, we always break down products by item groups and prepare data templates for like 10K products in each file.  You should also check how many Batch servers you have so that you can run multiple batch jobs on 01 batch server to upload products.

    For Example:

    Job 1:  10K

    Job 2:  10K

    Job 3:  10K

    Job 4:  10K

    So in total you can upload 40K products by using multiple batch jobs.

    Hi, Junaid:

    it's about 3 hundred thousand products.  How can i do it in chunks instead of whole entity's data in  "COPY Entity data between company"?

    thanks for your help.

    Hi Quatrani,

    Upload them in chunks not all of them together. How many products are we talking about?
