3374309 - Posting rules vs processing rules in bank statements - S/4HANA Cloud


What is posting rule and processing rule in bank statement processing in S/4HANA Cloud.



Reproducing the Issue

Posting rules are predefined and preconfigured in SAP S/4HANA Cloud. They therefore cannot be changed. A posting rule determines exactly how a bank statement item is posted. It determines which accounts are posted to on debit and credit sides, and also whether or not the respective debit or credit side is cleared.

Existing posting rules can be downloaded from KBA 2854415 - Information on Bank Statement Posting Rules in SAP S/4HANA Cloud system


There is a workaround using App Manage Processing Rules for Bank Statements, which is actually a preferred solution for Bank Statement automation in S/4HANA Cloud. Processing rules are more versatile and more powerful tool for automation then posting rules.

To use this feature, you need to purchase and activate the Advanced Bank Statement Automation (4X8) scope item.
