In the second section of this document, i’ll explain how to deploy the SFIN 2.0 Hana component and make the configuration on the abap side.

The first part of the configuration can be check here – S/4Hana Setup on-premise (part 1)

SAP HANA Live 2.0 VDM for SFIN On-Premise Edition (Hana side)

In order to deploy the SFIN 2.0 specific views on Hana, 2 Hana Live component will need to be install on Hana


•    SAP HANA Live 2.0 for SAP Simple Finance, on-premise edition (SAP HANA ANALY. FOR SFIN 2.0)

Select the following package on the market place and deploy it over HALM in this order :



To load this add-on into I’ll use hdbalm command

“./hdbalm –u <user> -h <hostname> -p <port> install <zip package>”


And install the second add-on for SFIN 2.0


Always check the deployment log once done and make some check from product deployed in HALM web


SAP HANA SFIN 2.0 abap installation post work

In order to be able to use SFIN 2.0 on the abap side, post activities needs to be perform:

•    Activate Financial Extension

•    Activate ICF services

I will first turn Fin. Extension switch to “on” in SFW5 transaction


Several ICF services needs to be activated in order to use SFIN 2.0, since many of it needs to activate I won’t list them all so refer to the following note:

•    1974650 – SAP Simple Finance, on-premise edition: ICF Service Information

From an installation perspective for the mandatory component, it’s all done, the next phase is now the configuration and i will explain it below.

SAP HANA SFIN 2.0 configuration

SAP Simple Finance, on-premise edition leverages the latest features of BI Content and integrated business planning applications. The following configuration steps need to be performed in the SAP Simple Finance system:

•    Activate Embedded BW

•    Switch on business function

•    Activate Content Bundle for New Financial Planning

•    Activate Planning and Consolidation Unified

For my case I did setup a client 200 for BW and also create the logical system name


In SE03 make the namespace with prefix /BI0/ and /BIC/as modifiable/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/9_797700.jpg

With DDIC run RSA1 (set the parameter RSWAD_SKIP_JAVA and value ‘X’ before to avoid java error)


Once completed check in RSD1 if ORSPL* InfoObject exist in active version


Project planning requires the activation of business function FIN_CO_CCMGMT as a technical prerequisite. Cost center planning requires the activation of business function FIN_CO_CCPLAN, so i will turn them on in SFW5


The BF activated, now I can activate Content Bundle for New Financial Planning, in order to do it:

1.    Activate DataSource 0PROFIT_CTR_0106_HIER

2.    Activate Content Bundle

3.    Activate Analysis Office Workbooks

4.    Copy default customizing settings to your planning clients

In RSA5 expend the complete list of data source and activate “0PROFIT_CTR_0106_HIER”


Warning (refer to the note : 2205577 – Application component does not exist when activating DataSource in RSA5: Error R8418)


Run the transaction “BSANLY_BI_ACTIVATION”


Make sure you select the following entries and activate


During the activation the “select source system” windows appear, do not select any system, and click cancel to pass it.

Once completed with no error


Run now the transaction RSOR to activate Analysis Office Workbooks


Select all workbook starting with /ERP/SFIN_A*, in addition /ERP/SFIN_M01_Q1000_WB01, ERP/SFIN_V10_Q0001_WB01, and /ERP/SFIN_V11_Q0001_WB01 and transfer the selection

/ERP/SFIN_M01_Q1000_WB01 (Income Statementby Market Segment)

ERP/SFIN_V10_Q0001_WB01 (Work Analysis)

/ERP/SFIN_V11_Q0001_WB01 (WIP Analysis)



Check all object and click install


Once completed I copy the ACT01 category from client 000 to my Planning client (100)

Note: you have to open the client 000 for client specific object


The transport created it needs to imported in client 100


Once the transport imported activate Planning and Consolidation Unified in SM30


Add the following


The configuration is completed, now the functional consultant can interfere with the system to make their necessary configuration according their needs.

In my next documentation i’ll continue with the client side configuration based on “SAP Fiori for SAP Simple Finance, On-Premise Edition” and  “Business for SAP Simple Finance, On-Premise Edition”
