New Features in SAP Subscription Billing (2021-12-20)
Welcome to our blog series about SAP Subscription Billing’s new features!
This week we are happy to share three features that were recently released: Support of new languages, a way to restrict user access on market level in the apps and a new experience when it comes to creating and updating usage records via the UI. Let’s have a look together in detail:
New language versions
We’ve expanded the language availability of SAP Subscription Billing and now offer the solution in these additional languages:
- Brazilian Portuguese
Authorization restriction on market level
You can now authorize users to access data for particular markets only. For example, a user can be allowed to only display billing data for subscriptions in the market for which they are responsible. Authorization is controlled by roles that you define for your accounts on the SAP Business Technology Platform. You can find out more about roles and authorization in the Setup and Administration Guide under User Management.
Easier creation of usage records
Creating usage records for test or demo purposes is now much easier. In the Usage app, you can create a new usage record by copying and modifying an existing one. Or you can create a new record from scratch and have a clearer overview of the fields that you need to fill out. You also see information about the assignment of the usage to a subscription, and other details such as the customer. What’s more, you can now edit existing records to update the quantity, external ID, and customer references.
New Usage Records Creation UI
That’s all on our latest features. Thank you for reading today’s blog post! ☁️

Market-level restrictions will come in handy for customers who want to give business users access to the Subscription Billing user interface!
For the usage app improvements, you mention that it is an improvement for demo and test purposes. Are there customers with a small number of usage records using the app in production?
Thanks for your comment and your question.
For sure you can also use the usage app in productive environments, but still most scenarios require an automated, API-based data flow for injecting usage into Subscription Billing merely because of data volume. That's what the remark in the text above is referring to.
