3326860 - Transfer profit center without redetermination - SAP S/4HANA Cloud


There is a business need that profit center should be transferred from subscription management side to billing document request, and then to billing document without any redetermination.



Reproducing the Issue

Custom field (solution order) has been created for the profit center. When creating a BDR (Billing Document Request), the profit center is not getting copied, it seems to be redetermined. Ideally the profit center filled in their custom field (solution order) would remain for the entirety of the process: Solution order -> Provider contract -> Subscription -> BDR -> Invoice.


The reason for the incorrect profit center in the billing document request is, that the profit center will be determined automatically from material master records. This process is SAP default if no profit center will be send from external per item.


In order to solve the issue, do the following:

  1. The default profit center has to be cleared in the material master records.

  2. The correct value should be sent for the profit center in the creation interface for the billing document request.
