Difference between background search and cross catalog search in SAP SRM
Hi Experts, I have some question:
I have some question:
1) What's the difference between the parameter function=background_search and cross catalog search in SAP SRM.
From my point of view:
Cross catalog tick mark - gives the possibility of searching across catalogs...
function=background_search makes is possible to use transparent catalog instead of normal punch out
My developer see it like this:
Cross catalog means => function=background_search - he sees is the same functionality. If you tick mark the "cross-catalog" , then the system are going to use BG=background_search functionality and then the system automatically add this parameter to request.
2) Do I need to distinguish between Transparent Punch Out and normal Punch Out in SAP, or is it a task for the catalog provider?
