S4 HANA 1610 - Business Partner - Payment Behavior Key Figures not populating

Hello Experts,

We have recently converted to S4 HANA 1610 OP FSP01 and my issue is related to Business Partner / Credit Segment 0000 (Main) / Payment Behavior Key Figures not populating.

Under Business Partner, Credit Management Segment 0000 (Main), we are not able to observe any Payment Behavior Key Figures populating.

I have attached a screen of a BP under Credit Segment 0000 (Main).


The design of our client is 1 Credit Control Area is mapped to 1 Company Code.

However, we can see some values populating in other Segments. These are the Segments for example Credit Segment 1000 mapped to Credit Control Area 1000 and Credit Control Area 1000 ultimately mapped to Company Code 1000.

Here we can see items like "Oldest Open Item", "DSO", "Sales", etc any other as created by us,

May I please know on how to populate values under Credit Segment 0000 too :

  1. If we are missing any configurations for the Segment 0000 (Main) .... or ...
  2. There is some customization to be done at some BAdi, as seen on blogs or sap help.

Will be grateful to your expert advice.

SAP allows an additional “Main” Credit segment ‘0000’. The functionality allows to view customers credit on a global level, in case they transact in multiple segments. In configuration you can link a segment to the main segment.

A Global customer can receive a separate Credit limit in each Credit segment, as well as a Global Credit Limit. The functionality is to allow to monitor Credit exposure for Global Customers at both Credit Segment (Credit control Area/Sales Area/Country) and Main Segment (overall Credit limit/Global) level, thus aggregating Credit exposure in one unit.

Payment Behavior Key Figures relate to FI-AR data for the company codes linked under your individual Credit segments, so
UKMBP_VECTOR_IT may only be populated with data at Individual Credit segment /Credit Control Area/Company Code level and not with aggregated values across multiple segments. In that sense, under the “Main” Credit segment ‘0000’ no payment behaviour key figures are expected.

Hope this helps,

Georgios Sofianos

Thank you very Georgios, for your answer and it is indeed helpful.

Apologies for the late reply, as our Client were not interested to set 0000 for Global Credit Management. They have 1:1 design only.

Hi Hussein Merchant,

I face the same question.

Have you solved this question already?

The figures are only updated after running program UKM_TRANSFER_VECTOR.
