Master Data Migration Relevancy Rules -2- Active Suppliers

Purpose: One of the main requirements to migrate master data is to set up migration relevancy rules for each master data object.  I have implemented many projects, and everyone spends a considerable amount of time on this topic in every project. I have tried to consolidate the relevancy rules object-wise so that this effort can reduce your project implementation timeline. Use this as a template and modify the rules as necessary. do share any additional relevancy rules to make this blog post better.

The below table gives possible rules for migrating active suppliers.
