3195490 - How to assign leading ledger in CBC - S/4HANA Cloud


There is no option to change the leading ledger in Configuration Activity 'Assign Accounting Principles to Ledgers and Company Codes' in CBC



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the CBC
  2. In the Configuration Activities choose 'Assign Accounting Principles to Ledgers and Company Codes'
  3. Try to activate 2L ledger as leading ledger
  4. Checkbox is grayed out


For CBC based customers the leading cannot be changed directly.


It is possible to change the Accounting Principle Assignment as long as there are no postings in the ledger. This way the leading ledger stays 0L, but customers can assign e.g. IFRS to 0L and the local gaps to 2L. As a result, the same requirement can be achieved, the IFRS ledger will be the leading ledger.
