You are trying to create a relationship between existing Customer and Contact records. You observe that the relationship is getting created, but the address details are not created.



Reproducing the Issue

To perform the POST call:

  1. Login to the third-party tool
  2. Perform a POST operation for the API_Business_Partner 

where xxxxxx represents the tenant URL of the S/4HANA cloud system

Sample Request Payload:


    "BusinessPartnerCompany": "string",

    "BusinessPartnerPerson": "string",

    "to_ContactRelationship": {

        "ContactPersonFunction": "stri",

        "EmailAddress": "string"


    "to_ContactAddress": {

        "results": [{

                "CityName": "string",

                "CompanyPostalCode": "string",

                "Country": "str",

                "HouseNumber": "string",

                "Language": "st",

                "to_PhoneNumber": {

                    "results": [{

                            "PhoneNumber": "string",

                            "PhoneNumberExtension": ""










It is not possible to create, change or delete the Contact Person workplace address via OData service API_BUSINESS_PARTNER.

As described in the SAP Help Portal, entity A_BPContactToAddress (navigation property to_ContactAddress) only supports the Read operation:


Contact Person Address

GET call



Requested functionality of assigning a Company address to a Contact Person is currently not available in the OData API. We currently do not have an approach to Mass update the customer data using the button Assign Company Address on the Contact person screen. Further, supporting the Create, Change and Delete scenarios in this case using the OData API is a new development request.
