UETR is a tracker that enables you to monitor SWIFT gpi (Global Payment Innovation) payments in real-time for credit transfers. Basically, it has the same logic as the post package tracking system. The official introduction video explains it in more detail (link).
The goal of this blog post is to show you how you can easily search, display, store, generate UETR in SAP S/4HANA, and SAP S/4HANA Cloud. Additionally, how to add UETR Reference to payment medium format.
Option 1: You run an Enterprise Search for Payment Batches
Option 2: You use a smart filter in Monitor Payments app where the adaptation of filters is a prerequisite.

How to search for UETR in SAP S/4HANA?
You can use the Batch and Payment Monitor (BNK_MONI) where all the selection options are displayed (Shift + F7).You need to activate the UETR column in Payments manually by choosing:
Change Layout – Unique Reference (UETR) – move from Column Set to Displayed Columns – Apply
- Open transaction SE38 ABAP Editor
- Enter RFZALI20 Payment List in the program field and choose Execute (F8)
- Enter the Program run date and choose Execute (F8)
- Change the layout (Ctrl+F8) as follows:
- Move the Unique Reference (UETR) hidden field to the fields to be displayed and save your new layout (Ctrl+F10).
- Run the RFZALI20 Payment List report again so that you can see the UETR
The UETR can be stored only for a short time period in the Settlement Data from Payment Program (REGUH) database table.
UETR is generated for all payments during the Payment Run (F110) as the scheme below shows. If no UETR is generated, the system creates it in Payment Medium Workbench (FBPM).SAP S/4HANA Cloud
The step-by-step process is described in the product assistance of SAP S/4HANA Cloud on this link.
