This S/4HANA SCN Blog Post gives an overview about the ALWAYS_OFF and ALWAYS_ON Business Functions within SAP S/4HANA 1610. Similar Blogs exist for:

 

Introduction

As a first step within the SAP S/4HANA, on-premise system conversion the customer will execute the Maintenance Planner. The Maintenance Planner checks the system with regards to business functions, industry solutions, and add-ons. If there is no valid path for the conversion (for example, the add-on is not released yet), the Maintenance Planner prevents the conversion.

  • For more details see Conversion Guide (SAP Help) or the related SCN Blog (The System Conversion to SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 – Technical procedure and semantic adaption tasksSCN Link).
  • It is recommended to get familiar with the SAP S/4HANA system conversion basic information.
  • The following SCN Blog provides specific information about the role of Business Functions within SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 and is based on the basic understanding of the system conversion process.

 

Business Functions

A business function is a building block of a business function set. From a business perspective, it represents a self-contained function that you can switch on. From a technical point of view, it is a set of switches that assign repository objects to the business function. Business functions are switched on at a system level. For more details regarding Business Functions see SAP Help: Link

 

Business Functions Sets

The business functions are grouped in business function sets in your ABAP-based ECC system. There are two types of business functions sets:

  • For most Industry Business Solutions, there is one business function set for each industry. You use this to change your clients of an ECC system over to the applications and solutions tailored for an industry. This business function set covers all industry business functions that can be used for an industry solution to be used exclusively on one system/one instance.
  • In addition to the industry-specific business function sets, there is a general business function set. This contains the Enterprise business functions and the Enterprise Extensions. These contain functions for the standard applications of Accounting, Logistics, Human Capital Management, and some additional industry-specific applications.

A business function set is activated when you have activated at least one of the related business functions. We therefore recommend that you activate the business function set when you start configuring your system, since the required industry-specific view of your Implementation Guide is only created once you have activated the related business function.For more details regarding SAP ERP Business Functions and Industry Business Solutions see SAP Help:Link

 

Business Functions Status in SAP S/4HANA

A Business Functions can have the following S/4 On-Premise state (Field: S4H_OP_STATE) in SAP S/4HANA:

  • Always on,
  • Customer switchable (or Blank which is tretaed similar to Customer_switchable),
  • Always off.

During the system conversion to SAP S/4HANA the following figure gives an overview about the handling of different status of Business Functions.

Start Release (SAP Business Suite) Target Release SAP S/4HANA
State SAP S/4HANA, on-premise state Conversion New State Remark
ON ALWAYS_OFF NO See SAP Note 2240359
OFF ALWAYS_ON YES ON See SAP Note 2240360
ON Customer_Switchable (or blank) YES ON
OFF Customer_Switchable (or blank) YES OFF

 

 

ALWAYS OFF in SAP S/4HANA

If a business function was switched “ON” in the Business Suite start release system, but defined as “always_off” in the SAP S/4HANA target release, then a system conversion is not possible with this release (for Business Functions where the status cannot be reverted on start release).

See as well SAP Note 2240359 – SAP S/4HANA: Always-Off Business Functions

Note: 
In this constellation it is not possible to convert this system and start a conversion program with the target of productive use. If the intention is a proof of concept to experience SAP S/4HANA it is possible to convert the system by applying a workaround in a non-productive testing environment.

 

 

ALWAYS ON in SAP S/4HANA

If a business function was switched “OFF” in the start release system, but defined as “always_on” in the target release, then the business function will be activated during the conversion.

See as well SAP Note 2240360 – SAP S/4HANA: Always-Off Business Functions.

CUSTOMER SWITCHABLE in SAP S/4HANA

If a business function is defined as “customer_switchable” in the SAP S/4HANA target release then the business function status remains unchanged from the status on start release. Business Functions which are not listed within the ALWAYS_OFF and ALWAYS_ON section of this blog do have the status CUSTOMER_SWITCHABLE (or Blank they are treated similar to customer_switchable). This is the state of the great majority of Business Functions in SAP S/4HANA.
These business functions keep their state after the conversion to SAP S/4HANA (BF which have been active on SAP ERP start relelease remain active / BF which have been inactive on SAP ERP start release remain inactive).

    Frank,

    Thanks for providing detailed information.

    I have been following your previous blogs and i have below questions,

    Earlier blogs ( 1511 initial shipment, 1511 FPS01/02) have business functions which are part of future roadmap. Do you plan to publish future roadmap at some point of time in near future?

    I checked trail version of 1610 system and i see a status for business function named “default state”….so, if a customer has a business function “ON” in source system then what is the impact w.r.t system conversion?  Ex: Business function MDG_CUST_ERPCLIENT_1 is defined as “default_state” in 1610…

    Thanks,
    Jay

    Thanks for the detailed list, i’m quite concerned with the implications of the “always_off” status, i know a pair of customers who have activated the listed BFs and were evaluating the effort to migrate to S/4 HANA.

      There is no work around for system conversion in productive environment if they are “always_off” business functions which are activated in customer source system.
      SAP will provide masking only for sandbox for POC.
      If the “always_off” BFS are part of future roadmap then hopefully they can consider migration plan in future S/4 HANA releases.

      Thanks,
      Jay

    Dear Frank,

    Both on 1511 as on 1610, the business function LOG_SD_ANALYTICS_01 appears to be ‘obsolete’ (which is another ‘flag’ than what you were discussing before, i.e. always on or off; even more, it has the value is ‘switchable’). The implication is that it is no longer possible to use the logistics SD extractors to support delta-loads towards a linked BW system. I was able to unflag this ‘obsolete’ flag, and could activate the business fuction again, and I’m now in the process of testing whether 2LIS_11* extractor can still be used for their previous purpose.
    This raises some questions :
    (1) what is the alternative for using 2LIS_11* extractors to get SD data delta-per-delta towards an allocated BW instance ? I assume the same is valid for 2LIS_12* and 2LIS_13*.
    (2) in the assumption I get 2LIS_11* working again by ‘repairing’ the obsolete flag : does SAP support this way of working ?
    (3) I also found some other business functions related to 2LIS*, e.g. LOG_MM_ANALYTICS_01, which is also categorized ‘obsolete’; therefor, I expect 2LIS_02* and/or 2LIS_03* to be unusable.

    I don’t know the full list of business functions for the other 2LIS-extractors, but as most (if not all) of the BW-customers I know are using this, I think it would be very usefull to have a guideline on the way forward in context of either conversion or even a new setup.

    Many thanks in advance,
    Kind regards,
    Mark.

      Hello Mark,
      my understanding is that you managed that only via “Debugger” or as “modification”. There is no “official” way to activate business functions that are defined as “obsolete”. Accordingly the SAP support is not doing that in a similar way. The functionality which are related to ALWAYS_OFF business functions are not available in SAP S/4HANA. They will not get available by modifying the “obsolete” flag.  For certain areas the former coding is not yet deleted but the functionality is nevertheless not supported.
      Regarding the BW content I just can point you to the appropriate Simplification Item which should be that one: SAP Note 2289424: S4TWL – SAP S/4HANA and SAP Business Warehouse Content – BI_CONT.
      I´m sorry, possibly that is not the answer you have hoped for but that the answer I have to give.
      Kind Regards,
      Frank

    Hi Frank,
    Thanks for your quick respons.
    I managed to change the obsolete flag without debugging : just went into change, and reactivated the BF.
    Remark that though the function is ‘obsolete’, it is NOT in ‘ALWAYS_OFF’ but in ‘switchable by customer’.
    The note you refer to is about BI_CONT, which does relate to the embedded BW, and not really to the source-system extractors in place.
    So in conclusion my questions remain unanswered, so let me reformulate in a more specific phrasing :
    (1) Are 2LIS* extractors still supported in S/4 HANA or not ?
    (2) If not : what is the alternative for according delta-extraction ?
    Many thanks,
    KR,
    Mark.

      Hello Mark,

      possibly I was not precise enough. Obviously in your system changing of SAP objects (=modification) is set to allowed. I assume you changed the attribute of the Business Function in Transaction SFW2. In case these changes are allowed in your system you should get while entering SFW2 the pop-up “System Setting does not allow you to change R3TR SFBF <Business_Function_ID>”. If you continue (which is possible in systems where the modification of SAP Objects is allowed) you are modifying a SAP Object. If it does not behave like this at least I do not understand the system hanling at this point (at least in our internal “customer-like” systems it behaves like this.  .
      I will ask my BI contact to provide more information about the BW extractors and S/4HANA. Let see what I can provide here.

      Kind Regards,
      Frank

    Hello Mark,

    My name is Ursula Nani and I am Product Owner in SD and responsible for Analytics in S/4 HANA.

    The Business Function LOG_SD_ANALYTICS_01  was build in ERP before avaialbitiy of HANA to allow real-time analytics without extraction into a BW system. For this business function basic functionality of the 2LIS_11_* extractors were re-used, but the business function never controlled the Extraction into a BW system.

    The extraction into BW was always possible without activation of the business function.

    With S/4 HANA this business function is no longer supported because we are doing embedded analytics using the capabilities of HANA now.

    BW extraction form S/4 HANA On Premise to an On Premise BW System is still available and released.Therefore you do not need the business function.

    Best Regards,

    Ursula
