3433738 - Billing document posting via output channel IDOC does not work - SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2402


  • Your business user is assigned a business role based on the the SAP_BR_BILLING_CLERK business role template.  
  • After the upgrade to SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2402, accounts payable postings via output channel IDOC are not possible for billing documents used in intercompany processes. 
  • In the Message Monitoring for Administrators app, you receive the following error as a log message: “You have no authorization for posting in functional area <xyz>.”


SAP S/4HANA Cloud 2402


The Functional Area (FKBER) restriction type is now mandatory to perform these postings. The business role template SAP_BR_BILLING_CLERK currently doesn't allow you to maintain the required authorization.


You can assign a business catalog with access level 'Write' for the Functional Area restriction type (FKBER) to your business role.
You can use the Display Restriction Types app to identify a suitable business catalog.
Example business catalog: Accounts Payable – Invoices (SAP_FIN_BC_AP_INVOICES_PC)
