Function documentation Sites: Grouping Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


Sites can be grouped together.

Grouping sites together has the following advantages:

For example, you can change a large number of articles for a large number of stores without having to make the changes in all the stores individually.

For example, a promotion can be carried out in all the stores of the same size in a particular region.

For example, you can enter the number of employees in a certain group of stores.


Site groups are used mainly in the following functions:


One site can be assigned to several groups. A site group does not have any master data or movement data. It is used simply as a method of ensuring that data is maintained for all the individual objects assigned to it (for example, in making mass article changes).

Site groups are created as classes in the Classification system. The groups can be valid for different periods of time, depending on the class type. The class type also determines whether a site can be assigned to one or more groups.

Site group applications are used to determine how classes are used.

The following views are available in the standard system:

The class type used to create the site groups is stored for every application. The standard system contains class type 30 (sites, not strictly hierarchical) and 35 (sites, strictly hierarchical).
