2894617 - S/4HC: Business Partner API is failing while creating business partner

Symptom

  • Error "There is no currently valid standard address" is encountered when trying to create a Business Partner via Inbound interface BusinessPartnerSUITEBulkReplicateRequest_In.
  • BusinessPartnerSUITEBulkReplicateRequest_In interface service is failing when replicating business partner data from client to SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

    “Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental.“

Environment

SAP S/4HANA CLOUD

Cause

If one or more BP addresses, but there's no standard address usage given, the same is an error. It's mandatory that at least one address of the Business Partner is marked as standard address (including matching validity periods). If the Business Partner has one or more addresses, but none of the is marked as standard address, this data set is inconsistent. Any kind of mapping or synchronization logic that requires the Business Partners standard address would fail.

Therefore, If the payload does not send the standard address usage, but one or more address, this data is inconsistent and cannot be processed.

Resolution

The payload should contain information for AddressUsage segment. Once, the correct payload is passed, the messages would be processed.
