How to create employee in S/4HANA for Customer Management

In SAP CRM On-Premises we simply use tcode BP in the backend to create employee. The steps are described in blog Step-by-step Create Employee Role to BP in CRM.
In S/4HANA for Customer Management, we should follow the below steps instead.
1. tcode PA30, select Infotype as Actions and press the creation button:
In creation page, maintain the following settings:
Press save button. The person number is generated automatically:
2. Create Personal Data:
Maintain Title, First name and Last name:
3. Create Organizational Assignment:
Maintain subarea from F4 value help:
4. Link this created person to a given SAP name by directly maintaing infotype Communication. Manually type 105 in Infotype field and 0001 for SType, and press enter key:
Maintain your SAP name here:
5. Run report /SHCM/RH_SYNC_BUPA_EMPL_SINGLE to trigger the synchronization employee data stored in HCM master data persistence (infotypes) so far with S/4HANA Business Partner.
Once done, you can display the created employee in WebClient UI. Keep in mind the personel number found in tcode PA30 is just the number of HR data but not the employee ID in S4CRM. In my example the employee ID is 9980000106 as displayed below.
You can find the corresponding record in BUT000,
And there is also a set of CDS views built on top of BUT000 in S/4HANA.

  • Does this mean basic HR configuration/ business processes are mandatory in order to use CRM employee role in S4HANA for Customer Management?


  • Hi Jerry, running report “/SHCM/RH_SYNC_BUPA_EMPL_SINGLE” does not create any BP for me. Can you point me to what am I missing?

    Best Regards,

  • Hello sir,

    Currently, I am practicing on 1909 Version of SAP S4 HANA

    I have activated HRALX – HRAC – X

    But, Still, I am unable to create BP for employees and not available BP Role BUP0003.

    If I try to create employee T code: CRM_IC_EIC_ALE then Employeed has created, But i have got this error

    Required field Correspondence lang. has no entry Message no. R1304 Diagnosis Field ‘Correspondence lang.’ with short description ‘Business Partner: Correspondence Language’ has been set within Customizing as a required field. There is, however, no entry in this field. System Response Error message Procedure Enter a value for field ‘Correspondence lang.’.

    • Hi Jai,

      Hope you are doing well.

      Can you please explain how did you created in employee as vendor in S4 HANA version 1909.

      I am getting error while executing the report /SHCM/RH_SYNC_BUPA_EMPL_SINGLE , that grouping doesnt exist. My understanding is, this report will automatically BP for the employee hired through PA40.

      Therefore, i just want to know what process you have followed to create the employee as vendor in S4 hana .

  • Hi Jerry,

    I have followed the steps in the blog,

    I could create Employee , I could Run the Report /SHCM/RH_SYNC_BUPA_EMPL_SINGLE and it got scessfully processed as shown in your blog.


    but it is not reflecting in the UI and also not  visible in BUT000 table.

    Can you please let me know the  more trouble shooting still?
