3012682 - Business Partner Segment Filter not Considered in S/4HANA Cloud


Business Partner Replication web service filters are not considered when replicating data in S/4HANA Cloud.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Set "Segment Filters" in the "Define Filter Criteria" App.
  2. Replicate a Business Partner.
  3. A BP which has excluded roles is still replicated.


  • When you define a segment filter, you ensure that only selected segments of a business objects are replicated.
  • The Object filter needs to be set as well or the BP would still be replicated and just the filtered segments would not be replicated. E.g. If the role FLCU01 is only exclude in the Segment Filter then BP's which have FLCU01 would still be replicated but the role FLCU01 wouldn't be replicated with the BP.
  • If the requirement is to exclude all BPs with the FLCU01 entirely then the filter would need to be set at object level.


  1. Open the "Define Filter Criteria" App.
  2. Open the object.
  3. Ensure that the Object is filtered.
