SAP Business by Design - Client Data Validations

Hi everyone!

This is my first post here. I searched the documentation and this Q&A section first, but I couldn't find answers to my question. I hope I was not overseeing something.

At the moment we are integrating with SAP ByD. We utilise the SOAP API provided by SAP.

We want to transfer Client Details/Vendor Information to SAP for Invoices we create and send also to ByD.

Obviously there are validations on fields like the zip codes and the max characters of company and address names.

Error examples are:

  • Postal code XXXX must have length 5 or 10
  • Position 3 of postal code XXXXX must be a '-'
  • Client/Contact Adress: Value is longer than the maximum permitted length 60
  • Company Names: Value is longer than the maximum permitted length 40

At the moment we are sending over the data and if the data transfer failed due to a validation error, we note down the validation and reformat/correct the data. Of course, it would be a bit more efficient to know the validation rules in advance and enforce the validations much earlier, before SAP ByD has to throw an exception.

Is there any Information or Documentation available for those validations that are enforced on Vendor/Client Data?

Thank you so much for your help in advance!

All the best
