Configurations in SAP Business One

You must perform several initialization steps in each branch company assigned to the intercompany integration solution. The Intercompany Initialization Wizard will guide you through the steps required to initialize a company for the intercompany integration solution. For steps related to SAP Business One settings, the wizard opens the relevant windows in SAP Business One and highlights the pertinent fields in green. 

To display this wizard, choose Administration → Intercompany Implementation Wizard → Intercompany Initialization Wizard. Follow the steps on the screen. 

To open the online help documentation for intercompany integration solution at any step, press shift + Esc.

Alternatively, you may complete the initialization set up manually in SAP Business One by completing the following steps:  
  1. Set the same number of decimal place settings for all branch companies by choosing Administration → System Initialization → General Settings → Display tab.
  2. Set the paths for the Pictures and Attachments folders by choosing Administration → System Initialization → General Settings → Path tab.
  3. Check that the Manage Freight in Documents checkbox is enabled by choosing Administration → System Initialization → Document Settings → General tab.
  4. Define the same set of currencies in each branch and consolidation company. Ensure that each Currency Code is correct and unique. 
  5. Define the encryption key by choosing Administration → Setup → Intercompany → Encryption Key. The encryption key is used to encrypt passwords recorded by the integration solutions add-on.
  6. Enter the connection details for the integration server for SAP Business One by choosing Administration → Setup → Intercompany → B1i Server Details

Alternatively, you can use the Copy Initialization Setup available in Intercompany Administration Console for performing the initialization setup in all companies. For more details, refer the Copy Initialization Knowledge Article.
