2843502 - Upload Bank Statement returns error “Upload from server is not supported in S4Cloud”


While using the app 'Upload bank statements' and provide inputs from variant, gives the error: “Upload from server is not supported in S4Cloud”.


  • Financial Accounting (FI)
  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • SAP Fiori

Reproducing the Issue

  1.  Open the app 'Upload bank statements'.
  2.  Select the variant from 'Get variant'.
  3.  Click on execute and the error occurs: “Upload from server is not supported in S4Cloud”.


The app "Upload Bank Statements" is a SAP GUI application which is same as the FF_5 Transaction code in On-Premise.

In S/4 Hana cloud, the 'Get variant' option is not supported in the app "Upload Bank Statements". As the error says: “Upload from server is not supported in S4Cloud”, the bank statement should be uploaded from a local folder and not from the server.

Or you can use the Fiori app "Manage incoming payment files" instead of the GUI app "Upload Bank Statements" for uploading the bank statements.
