    I have an interesting dilemma as I introduce traditional D365 FO intercompany order fulfillment (and the associated configuration/business processing goodies) to a 10.0.36 environment. At go live, Products were independently loaded along with the corresponding released products by legal entity. While the product records are shared across legal entities, released products were not created off a product that arguable represented an identical product ambiguous of the legal entity.


    1. Released Product AA was loaded into legal entity 1 at go live and associated with Product A.

    2. Released Product BB was loaded into legal entity 2 at go live and associated with Product B.
    Products A and B are technically the same thing BUT obviously represented by 2 distinct product IDs.

    In a perfect world, now that traditional intercompany is desired, we would want to have both Released Products AA and BB “linked” to Product A (or B, for that matter). The items have long since been transacted against in D365FO since go live, so it is fully believed that the ship has sailed for decoupling the Released Products from their current Product associations, and re-coupling them to a “shared” ProductID.

    Re-implementing Products and Released Products is out of the question at this point, and so we are looking at an enhancement to leverage external item ID “hooks” within the 60-ish configuration/business logic points/classes of standard Intercompany.

    Outside of this current direction, this is a bit of a “spray to all fields” sanity check to see if anyone else has cracked a similar nut for implementing standard intercompany where the “shared product ID” hook between legal entities was not initially followed or used.

    Thank you Crystal – I have my knee jerk suspicions on the direction I’ll need to go for a no-code solution, and have designed an enhancement to accommodate the ask IF push comes to shove and I can’t get across the finish line with OOTB functionality. Any feedback from the community is appreciated!
