Linking supplier master data to a buyer


Question / Problem: 

How can you apply a supplier to a specific buyer if there are more than one buyer? Looking at the XML data, I cannot see a 'Buyer' xml tag.

Answer / Solution: 

If you have set master data on customer level all suppliers will be connected to the customer. The buyer field in the master data will then be filled with the customer name.
If you need different supplier master data per buyer, you need to set master data to be on buyer level, meaning you have to uncheck the checkbox for Master data on Customer level.

When master data is on buyer level you will get one import folder per buyer when uploading using Online Connect. You need to create different supplier XML files, one per buyer.
