Fiori Map Payment Format Data app in SAP S/4HANA Cloud comes along with SAP-delivered regularly updated payment format mappings, already configured to match country-specific bank requirements.

If for some reason you would need to create a unique payment format mapping, it was previously only possible by using empty formats into which user would either import a tree structure and modify it or create a new tree structure to meet his requirements.

With the SAP S/4HANA Cloud 1811 release, Map Payment Format Data is coming with the possibility to create an entirely new payment format mapping, to copy existing mappings and to delete mappings.

Creating a Payment Format Mapping is the first step in the process of creation of Payment Medium Formats. Read more here to learn more about the process.

Creating New Mappings

You are now able to create your own mappings with just one click. After clicking the 'Create' button in the top menu, a pop-up window opens where you can define the tree name, a description, and an output tree format. 

Note: If you are seeking information about Creating Payment Medium Format, learn more about this process here.

Copying Existing Mappings

You are now able to copy existing payment format mappings - either as a child or as a parent on the same level (this can be used to create a hierarchy to distinguish for example country-specific, bank-specific a process specific mappings). 

Copying trees can be used if you, for example, want to modify SAP pre-delivered mappings.

The relation can have several levels.


Deleting Old Mappings

If for some reason you need to delete any custom mappings (the payment format has become obsolete, you created a new mapping for the format), there is an added 'Delete' button in the top menu, which upon clicking will delete the custom version of the payment format mapping and if present, an unsaved draft.


Releasing Mappings

Every format mapping has to be released in order to add the latest changes to the central request and deploy them to the productive system. You release format mappings in the detail view of the mapping.
