2833338 - cannot use API API_PRODUCT_SRV with PATCH / PUT Requests to update multiple Entities Simultaneously


  • The API API_PRODUCT_SRV can use a POST request to update multiple Entities but not for PATCH / PUT
  • DEEP Request with API_PRODUCT_SRV  throws an error when performing PUT or PATCH Operation.
  • 'sub levels' not appearing when using PATCH for API_PRODUCT_SRV but appears when using POST

  • Master Data


Deep create is only possible in POST requests.

Our current API offering in SAP S/4HANA Cloud doesn't support Deep Patch/Put requests. Deep Entity operation is only supported with POST operation.

The operations PATCH/PUT can be performed only on a specific entity at a time.


To send multiple requests in a single request, the current recommendation is to use batch requests.

Sample input file OData_Batch.txt attached of what a Batch request would look like . Please amend for your own requirements .
