      Hi Sakti,

      Good information, but you should make the caveat up front in your first paragraph that this functionality and associated scope items aren't available for standard S/4HANA Cloud but only those using Oil and Gas.

      Hi Sakti,

      Thanks for the sharing. Do you know is there any plan to develop relevant features in standard S/4Hana Cloud? A lot of customer asked for them.

      Hello Sakti,

      we also have a client where we need bulk upload of assets. Will this be available as a standard in the cloud in the future?

      Also, the simultaneous creation of equipment when creating an asset does not seem to be available in the cloud yet either. Do you have any information on this as well, if applicable?

      Many thanks in advance!

      Kind regards

      A customer also enquired about these apps today. But we have to let them know it's not available on-premise for another while. All the documentation points to Cloud or Draft only.'F4772')/S30'F4771')/S30

      Dear Patrick,

      This is part of S/4HANA public cloud edition but not part standard. This is a separately priced scope item. Again, it is not available in on premise release as well.

      Thank you.

      Best Regards,

      thank you so much for this post,

      little question: I see that the assets created are codified without a subsidiary number, why?
