    Hi,

    There have to be some common field, either the supplier keeps your number. Or you have to keep their manufacturing number in a field and then match on that. If there is a risk of overlapping numbers from different suppliers could it be an option to append a 2-3 digit supplier code to their number in the excel file they are uploading?

    It appears when a supplier imports a file,  the match to existing entities is happening on our Product number. Is there a way to change this so the match happens on the vendor number?

    Thanks!

    Jarmo Huhtala, as stated in the article " no API methods related to Supplier Onboarding, so it is not accessible from extensions." so the best way is to post it as a product idea in the idea section in the community. Then our product managers will see it and can understand the need for it and others can vote for it. 🙂

    Hi Beth,

    Is this still an issue for you? You should be able to change this by updating the mapping of the excel file. But we would need to understand a bit more on how the excel file looks and what kind of mapping you have.

    @...,
    Hi
    It is still happening, this is because we have our product number as a mandatory unique field. The issue is  most of our  vendors, will have their own  manufacturing number for the product we are purchasing, but they will not  maintain our product number  for the item in their databases. So for a supplier to update information on an existing sku in Supplier Ownboarding is an issue. How do other companies handle this?

    Thanks!

    Are you planning to add API methods to import product list? We can't obligate our vendors to sign in and upload csv files to our system, but we could easily build an integration so that their system sends us item suggestions when ever they'll have something new in their catalogue. That would also give us benefit to be the first ones to sell those new products if the work flow was well automated.

    Hi Laura,

    Specification is a feature used for storing properties on an Entity, as well as grouping these properties into Categories. Please read the following article to learn more about specifications:
