/IAM/APP_CREATE_BUPA - Check Business Partners for Users

SAP E-Book


This report supports you with creating and updating business partners for the system users, for example, that you have imported from an external system.



  • Users exist in the system.
You can import users from the ERP system using Central User Administration, Computer Aided Test Tool (eCATT), or NetWeaver User Maintenance BAPIs.
  • The application-relevant PFCG role is assigned to the user.


The report checks if a business partner with the business partner role 'Employee' already exists for the user. The system does not create duplicate business partners. If the business partner does not already exist, the system transfers the following data from the existing user to the new business partner:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • E-mail address
  • Telephone number
  • Country

The report checks the completeness of this data and provides a log with the following messages:

  • Success (green): Business partner created
  • Warning (yellow): Business partner created but e-mail address and/or telephone number is missing
  • Error (red): Business partner not created because the first name, the last name, or the country is missing

You can print out this log.

By default, you run this report in simulation mode. This provides you with an overview of the users for which information is still missing.

You can use the Business Add-In (BAdI) /IAM/BADI_APP_CREATE_BUPA to enhance the program.

Updating Business Partners

  • If you want to check whether the business partner data is different from the user data and needs to be updated, select the Update Business Partner indicator in the simulation of business partner creation. As a result, you will get a log informing you which users have no business partner assigned, which users have a business partner assigned, and whether it can be changed.
  • If you want to update existing business partners that are linked with users assigned to the specific PFCG role, run the report in productive mode (simulation off) and select the Update Business Partner indicator.
