    FAQ: Supplier Content Map Sets
    What are Supplier Content Map Sets and how to leverage this feature in Self Service Procurement

    1. What are Supplier Content Mapping Sets?

    A Supplier Content Map Set is a set of up to four maps that are associated with a punchout catalog, or used for uploading lines to an agreement. A map set belongs to a single procurement BU and may consist of any or all of the four possible maps:

    i) Category

    ii) Unit of Measure (UOM)

    iii) Supplier

    iv) Supplier Site

    2. How are Mapping Sets used for in Self Service Procurement?

    Mapping Sets can be applied to

    a) Punchout Catalogs or

    b) Uploading Agreement Lines in the same Procurement BU

    Once the mapping sets have been created, they can then be applied to any Punchout Catalog you create or when uploading agreement lines

    3. What are the attributes that can be mapped for each of the above flows?

    Punchout Sites

    Aggregator Punchout Sites Agreement Loader
    Category Yes Yes Yes
    Unit of Measure Yes Yes Yes
    Supplier No Yes No
    Supplier Site No Yes No

    4. Can I apply the same mapping set configuration across different Requisitioning Business Units?

    Yes, as long as the requisitioning BU's belong to the same Procurement BU. You can use the checkbox 'Set as default for procurement BU' when creating a new mapping set

    5. Is there a way to apply a map set created in one Procurement BU across others?

    Not directly. You can always duplicate an existing map set and change the Procurement BU. That way you can duplicate all the mapping sets except Supplier Sites. This is also conveyed to the user through a warning when changing the Procurement BU
