Reproducing the Issue

  1. Access the Activity List of your current Implementation Project in the Business Configuration workcenter.
  2. In the Integrate and Extend phase open the Migration of customers activity.
  3. Press on Migrate customers using the migration tool.
  4. Select the migration unit containing file that you want to migrate.
  5. Press Execute Migration.
  6. Result: The error messages regarding the Account Determination, IBAN and SWIFT appear.


Currently it is not possible to migrate Bank Data as well as Payment Data for existing customers in one single migration step. Bank Data as well as Payment Data can only be migrated in one step for the generation of new Customers via Migration.


If you need to migrate Bank Data as well as Payment Data for existing customers the migration needs to be executed in two steps.

  1. First migrate only the Bank Data of the respective Customers in a separate Migration Unit.
  2. In a second step upload and migrate a file containing the Customers' Payment Data, such as Payment Method as well as SEPA MANDATE data.
