3491849 - The number of G/L accounts replicated using the "Replicate G/L Accounts" outbound service is smaller than the G/L accounts selected


  • When replicating G/L accounts to a target system (for example, a CIM system) using the communication scenario SAP_COM_0179 (Finance - Accounting Master Data Integration), outbound service CL_FINS_DRF_ARIBA_OUTB_GLACC_SPRX (Replicate G/L Accounts).
  • The number of G/L accounts selected in the log of the replication is greater than the number of G/L accounts that arrive in the target system.

Reproducing the Issue

This is an usability issue in the log of the replication. The number of selected G/L accounts is correct, but corresponds only to a part of the truth and is therefore confusing.

There are two filter levels in outbound service CL_FINS_DRF_ARIBA_OUTB_GLACC_SPRX.

  • The first filter level provided by the replication framework allows the end-user to restrict the G/L accounts to be replicated. This allows you to restrict the replication to individual company codes, for example. Or, if it is clear from the outset that only very few G/L accounts are to be used in the target system, you can replicate these G/L accounts precisely.
    The result of this filter level is visible in the log of the replication.
  • The second filter level, which is hard-coded and cannot be influenced, filters out all G/L accounts that cannot be entered manually in procurement-like business processes. This was decided because this outbound service was developed for target products that run procurement-like business processes and the G/L accounts filtered out are not required in such target products.
    Unfortunately, the result of this second filter level is not visible in the log, which obviously leads to confusion.


Please check the G/L account master data.

These are the additional filter criteria.

The G/L account:

  • Must not be blocked for posting;
  • Must not be blocked for planning;
  • Is not a reconciliation account for customer;
  • Is not a reconciliation account for suppliers;
  • Is not a reconciliation account for fixed assets;
  • Is not a reconciliation account for tax;
  • Is not a reconciliation account for cash;
  • Allows cost object assignments;
  • Is allowed to be posted manually.
