Thank you for the helpful information.
I have 2 questions:
But, we couldn't find "what kind of Improvements" were implemented.
Is there any detail for these topics? Where can we find some information?
Following improvements are done for the ODATA scenario topic:
For the Copy Solution Profile to an External System, please find the help doc here: https://help.sap.com/viewer/2754875d2d2a403f95e58a41a9c7d6de/2202/en-US/62c4b8614bed43f9a0b79213a31345cf.html
This feature is now generally available with the 2202 release. In 2111 it was shown to a limited number of customers (partners) and some of the BC options were not available back then, and the process was not working end-to-end yet.
Hope this helps! Thank you for your questions.
Thanks for the information.
I could confirm the "UsageDeniedIndicator" in the system. Thank you.
But about other 3 topics, I couldn't confirm it from system. If possible, would you please explain how can I confirm it or attach some screenshot for better understanding?
Please find more information below for the remaining topics:
Create an OData service for “SalesArrangement”. When using this OData service to create an instance of the SalesArrangement, you can now link it with an instance of the “Customer” via the property “CustomerUUID”.
To maintain “contact relationships” for an account, you can create an OData service for “BusinessPartnerRelationship”. Use this oData service to create an instance of the Relationship and link the account (Customer) with a contact person (BusinessPartner) via the properties “FirstBusinessPartnerUUID” for the account and “SecondBusinessPartnerUUID” for the contact person. Additionally, you set property “CategoryCode” to “BUR001” to indicate a contact person relationship.
Via an ODATA service, you now can directly “create” a business partner with the role “Customer”. Here you use the node “Role” of the “Customer”. You need to create an instance of “Role” with RoleCode “CRM000”
Hope this helps!
Hello Kristof Schneider
About the change on the SEPA Credit Transfer Payment File
Forcing this tag to "False" has the consequence that the batch is split into multiple payments at the bank.
These multiple payments show as such on the bank statement file, and that prevents the automatic payment allocation between the bank statement and the payment in SAP.
This means that the bank statement allocation needs to be done manually, multiple payment lines on the bank statement to be matched with the single payment in SAP, which is a huge pain in the neck and requires many hours of work per month.
And all this was not an issue before version 2202, so it is clearly a software regression to our eyes..
Finally, our bank (Société Générale) is still accepting a missing BtchBookg tag (and defaults it to True if not set), so we do not understand the urge to put this change in place.
How can we do to to fix that regression quickly?
Thanks a lot,
