3376912 - Make an entry in mandatory field "House Bank" error in Free Form Payment Request App - S/4HANA Cloud


When trying to post a 'Free Form Payment' through Fiori App Process Free Form Payments, the system gives the following error:

"Make an entry in mandatory field 'House Bank'".



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create New Payment Request via App 'My Free Form Payments'.
  2. House bank details are filled.
  3. Process Free Form Payments based on created Payment Request.
  4. Select 'Post and Release'. It is failed due to error: "Make an entry in mandatory field 'House Bank'."


Free-form payments can trigger payments without referencing a business transaction. When you create a free-form payment, the bank information of the business partner master data doesn't have to be in the system, nor does the amount of the payment transaction have to be represented by an open item. This activity creates a payment request.

However in SSCUI 105589 ''Define Clearing Accounts for Cross-Country/Region Bank Account Transfers' G/L account is defined as technical payment request clearing account for company code. According to program logic posting on technical PR clearing account, house bank and house bank account are not required.
If G/L account is set as cash account in Manage G/L Account Master Data App, house bank and house bank account are mandatory. This causing discrepancy in the process.


Change the G/L Account in SSCUI 105589 to a balance sheet account instead.
