How to create a customer in SAP S4 HANA through custom program?

Dear Gurus,

In S4 HANA, we have the concept of business partner and roles (Concept of Customers and Vendors are modified in order to reduce data redundancy). If we require a customer or vendor to be created, we need to create a BP and assign the role of customer.

I want to create/upload customers through program. I would like to know the steps for that.

Should I create a BP first and assign a customer role to it through BAPI and then update sales area data and any other required data? Is this the best way or is there any other way to achieve this? Is there any class/api available to create a BP and assign a customer role in a single step?

I am using CMD_EI_API to create/change customers. Is there any api/class to create/change BP?


Regards,

Pritam

@Horst Keller Sir, Could you please guide me on this? At least I should be able to reach out the right person for help. I don't know if it is allowed in the community policy to seek help from a specific person. Hope it will be forgiven.

Thanks in Advance.

Hi, note 2417298 "Integration of Business Partner with Customer and Supplier Roles" contains the allowed BP APIs.

CMD/VMD APIs are to not released for customer usage.

Thanks a lot Ingo Bruss Sir... I believe it'll serve my purpose. I'll try to implement this solution tomorrow and update you.

Hello Ingo Bruss Sir. Thanks for your help. I have been able to implement a basic solution and created BP through the program. However, It is not automatically creating a BP number and I had to mention the BP number explicitly.

I believe the issue is with the configurations and I would like to learn the basics about BP, BP creation, partner groups etc. Could you please share some document related to that? I am sorry that I am asking too much. But it's a bit difficult for a technical consultant to formulate a solution on his own. So, it'll be of great help if I get any pointers.

Thanks again.

Regards,

Sorry, can't really help here - thought that the number determination was controlled by BP grouping (BU_GROUP) and am not aware whether there are any issues in internal number creation.
