Search for Country Specific Extension Attributes

This blog post describes a business need for the extension of a standard search feature with custom search parameters. It also provides information on how to add this filter to the header of a business context in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

For example, the company has enhanced the bank master data with details of the sales office, and this needs to be included as an additional filter criteria in the search parameters.


You have administrative access to SAP S/4HANA Cloud and have implementation experience on the system.


Business Role Business Role ID
 Extensibility  SAP_BC_CORE_EXT


  1. Create a custom field (Custom Fields and Logic app)
    • Create a new custom field.
    • Select the relevant Business Context, for example, choose Bank Account Master Data.
      Note: Ensure that you enable the custom field for the relevant UIs and data sources in UIs & Reports.
  2. Add custom filter to business context (Maintain Business Users app)
    1. Add the role Cash Manager to the user.
    2. In Adapt Filters, search for the name of the new custom field.
      Note: This field will be available under the More Filters search criteria.
    3. Select the new custom filter, for example Sales Office and save the settings.
      The custom field is visible on the screen as a new filter option.

      Hi Rashmi Kumar,

      Thanks for the blogs! Very interesting. I have the following issue: We have a  field of Argentina' tax location. The field is "Tax Type". Technical name: FITYP. I can see the field at BP transaction, but I can't make visible it at FIORI. As this field is mandatory, when I try to create a new BP calling the tile "Manage BP data" (App IF F3163) the application show the error " please enter mandatory Field "Tax Type", but this field is not available at fiori app.

      Can you give me any advice?

      Thanks in advance!

      Regards, Julieta

      Hi Julieta,
      This is because of missing authorizations for tax types, in configuration. You could refer to the knowledge based article 2615211 for maintaining Tax Types for Business Partner Application in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.
      Thanks & regards,
