S/4 HANA - Possibility to control Field Status based on account groups or Business Partner Grouping

I am involved in a Greenfield S/4 implementation project for a large O&G company. Currently there is a requirement to control suppress/optional/required features based on account groups or Business Partner Groupings. However, I understand that this can only be controlled via BP Roles / types / transactions. Could any of the experts here please shed some light on this?

This is a very big concern for us at the moment as there is a definite requirement to control field statuses based on different account groups.

    Cross-Application Components -> SAP Business Partner -> Business Partner -> Basic Settings -> Field Groupings -> Configure field attributes per BP Role

    Please use the above function and control the field status of BP role as required.

    • Hi Prabhakar - I am aware of this part. However what I am looking for is to be able to configure field attributes / control using Account groups (as it was done in the traditional ECC system) or BP groups. I do not want to define new roles for field settings.
