2800835 - How to trigger manually Employee-BP synchronization in S/4HANA Cloud systems


In S/4HANA Cloud systems, you may need to trigger manually Employee-BP synchronization. It might be necessary to do it due:

  • Data inconsistency between the employee and the Business Partner.
  • Previous synchronization failed.
  • Scheduled synchronizations are not enough.
  • The replication from SF was successful but the changes are not present in the system.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1902
  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1905


In S/4 HANA system, the Employee-BP synchronization is usually run every hour.

However, if you need to trigger an additional synchronization, you can follow these steps:

  1. Open the app "Trigger Data Synchronization - Employee – Business Partner".

  2. The following message will be displayed:

    Trigger Business partner synchronization
    Business partner synchronization is scheduled for the employees who are not synchronized correctly to Business Partner.
    Check the logs in application Monitor Data Synchronization.

  3. The above message indicates the synchronization has been triggered again.

  4. You can check the result and logs of this synchronization by accessing the app "Monitor Data Synchronization" (Employee-Business Partner).

NOTE: Using the above method triggers the synchronization only for employees whose previous synchronization has failed. For new employees who have not had a synchronization yet, it is necessary to wait until the next scheduled synchronization.
