SAP S/4 HANA Business Partner(Vendor/Customer) Status Management


After doing a full S/4 HANA Hybrid implementation of all the Fields this is a small and very important information I would love to share

In SAP S/4 HANA there are some major change in Simplification. Simplification means getting rid of Redundant Functionality. There will be a lot of Transaction Codes that has been completely Decommissioned hence it is very important to know from before so that you all do not invest time and energy in enhancing those Transaction Codes.. .

One major change that has happened is SAP Vendor and Customers are now called Business Partner.

In Business Partner we have the concept of Status Management that can help you to do all Master Data Approval of Customer/ Vendor


Go TO SPRO Transaction Code and follow the path below

Select Create as mentioned below


Enter the Description

These are the below Status I wish to put

Now Select the Object Types so that we can assign this Status Profile to the Object Type(Business Partner)

Now Select Business Partner.and Save

Now we go to Business Partner Transaction Code BP and Search for a Supplier. Double Click on one Supplier and go to Status Tab as shown below. We can see our Status Profile attached

Now we Go in Change Mode and select Insert Status and we choose a Status. and Save it

Wala we have the Status of Business Partner/ Supplier.



You can use the above feature for Master Data Create/Change of Business Partner/Vendor/Customer.

      Hi Arghadip,

      This article is beneficial, and thanks for sharing this information. Would you mind letting me know if there is any configuration node to assign validity dates when we insert the status? I really appreciate any help you can provide.
