Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite Overview

Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite Overview

This integration scenario enables you to generate and pay payment requests triggered in Treasury and Risk Management component in SAP S/4HANA Cloud system in your central Financial Accounting component. The central Financial Accounting can be either an SAP S/4HANA system or an SAP ERP system.

Many customers run a hybrid system landscape with a standalone Treasury Management solution. Now they can run their treasury processes on the SAP S/4HANA Cloud System and integrate the related Treasury transactions to their central system (SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP).

The fast access to the SAP S/4HANA Cloud innovation cycles and a short implementation time are clear benefits of the overall Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite item.

Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite Process

In a hybrid system landscape, Treasury should work as a cloud workstation (standalone system). With whitelisted APIs the communication between the two systems is activated and the payment requests are automatically transferred via IDoc using HTTP/SOAP.

Thereby accounting documents can be replicated from the cloud system to the central system, but the payment (transaction F111) is still done in the cloud system. You can perform payment in the central FI system, which enables triggering of payment request creation or cancellation from the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system to the central accounting system.

Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite Operations

Treasury Workstation Integration

The communication scenario SAP_COM_0442 Treasury Payment Request Integration is used to integrate the SAP S/4HANA Cloud System and the Central SAP S/4HANA System.

There is no integration with the Shadow Financial Accounting on the sender side.

Payment request creation and cancellation is automatically transferred into the central system where the mapping of values is also performed.

Process Chain

In the Treasury Workstation (SAP S/4HANA Cloud system), the treasury specialist creates the financial transactions. In the next step, they settle the financial transactions.

After the transaction is settled, the specialist posts the flows using the Post Flows app and triggers the payment request creation. The payment request is created in the central Financial Accounting component system, either an SAP S/4HANA or SAP ERP system. Payment requests are sent to the target system with IDoc. With this asynchronous communication, it is possible to reprocess messages if there is an error.

In the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system, the treasury specialist cannot navigate to the payment request. But the status for payment request shows the flow as paid or reversed as soon as the data transfer was successful.

The payment requests are paid in the central Financial Accounting component system.

The data transfer from SAP S/4HANA Cloud system to the central Financial Accounting component system must be monitored in both, the sending and the receiving systems. If errors occur, they must be manually corrected.

The payment-relevant flows of financial transaction can be paid using a payment request. Whether a payment request should be created for payment flows is defined on the Payment Details tab within financial transaction data.

If the treasury specialist reverses a financial transaction or a flow of the financial transaction in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system, the following business transaction processing is done using the Process Business Transactions app. These reversals are automatically transferred to the central Financial Accounting component.

In the central Financial Accounting component, the payment requests are processed accordingly, except the creation and reversal of payment requests, there is no further communication between both systems.

Monitoring

SAP Application Interface Framework enables you to monitor the payment request outbound service. The monitoring is done using the Message Dashboard app available in the Message Monitoring group.

In the Calendar Monitor area, select the date range to view the triggered messages and then choose Search. In the Result List, you can see the messages for data replication under the namespace /FINAC and check the log details.

For the monitoring on the receiving SAP system you use the ALE Status Monitor (transaction BD87) to check the payment request outbound service.

The underlying message types are PAYMENTREQUEST_CREATE and PAYMENTREQUEST_CANCEL.

Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite Configuration

Treasury Workstation Payment Request Integration Setup

The configuration steps for the scope Item Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite (3NA) can be found in the Setup Guide in the SAP Best Practice Explorer.

This document describes additional configuration steps that should be carried out by customers to activate Treasury Workstation Payment Integration to SAP Business Suite. The steps activate the communication scenario that allows Cloud customers to create and reverse payment requests in the central accounting system, which is SAP Business Suite or SAP S/4HANA. These configuration steps are customer-specific, so they cannot be delivered by SAP, and must be carried out by the customer in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

Enable Cloud Connector

To get the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system talking to the on-premise system, the SAP Cloud Connector is required. Create a communication arrangement for the SAP_COM_0200 Cloud connector integration communication scenario and set up the SAP Cloud Connector.

In addition, enable the SAP_COM_0442 Finance - Treasury Payment Request Integration communication scenario. To do this, call the SAP Fiori launchpad of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud system with SAP_BR_ADMINISTRATOR business role and activate the communication scenario. This task is split up into two sub-tasks. See the detail on the communication system and communication arrangement in the following figures.

Call the Communication System app in the Communication Management group. To create a communication system, choose New.

Enter a system ID and a system name.

Enter information for the communication system in the Technical Data section in the General Area. Enter remote client host name in the mandatory Host Name field.

Enter the logical system ID of the remote client in the Logical System field. Enter the HTTPS port of the remote client in the HTTPS Port field. Mark the Use Cloud Connector indicator.

In the User for Outbound Communication section, choose .On the New Outbound User screen, choose the Authentication Method (for example, User Name and Password), then enter User Name and Password of remote client communication. Choose OK.

Call the Communication Arrangements app in the Communication Management group.

Create an arrangement for the SAP_COM_0442 Finance - Treasury Payment Request Integration communication scenario.

On the New Communication Arrangement dialog box, choose the Scenario ID SAP_COM_0442 and enter an Arrangement Name.

In the Common Data section, select the Communication System (created in the step before) from the input help.

The outbound user that was created in the Create Communication System section is automatically added to the Outbound Communication section.

In the Outbound Services area you can see the following outbound services:

  • Payment Request Creation
  • Payment Request Cancellation
  • Payment Request GetList

Enter the correct values in the fields for the system you wish to integrate in the Outbound Service section, e.g. Path and Port.

Save your entries.

Set Up Monitoring

With the app Assign Recipients to User you can assign your business users to the recipients that were defined for the communication scenarios. Once the users are assigned, they can use the Message Dashboard to monitor the interfaces and data messages they are responsible for.

To do so, open Assign Recipients to Users app (Message Monitoring area). Check that your user is already assigned to the recipient FINAC_RECT_TRPR_OUT.

If not, assign the recipient to your user.

In the Assign Recipients dialog box enter the following:

Namespace: /FINAC

Recipient Name: FINAC_RECT_TRPR_OUT

Message Type: Application Error or Technical Error scope item in the Best Practices Explorer

Overview: Mark the indicator (X)

Technical User: Mark the indicator(X)

Choose Assign.
