In this blog post you will learn about an extensibility scenario on the SAP S/4HANA Cloud, in which a custom field is enabled across outbound delivery to billing document scenario.

For example, you have an item category code that you would like to use at an item level in an outbound delivery, and would like the same item category to be also visible on the billing document.


You have administrative access to SAP S/4HANA Cloud and have implementation experience on the system.

  2. Enable the custom field for the delivery document. You do this by selecting the UI & Reports tab and enabling Delivery Item GUI Application.

  3. Enable the custom field for the business scenario. In our example, choose the Delivery to Billing document as the business scenario.

  4. Add the Item Category Code to the Billing Document UI. You do this In the UI Adaptation Mode.
    When a user enters this Item Category Code, the same code will also be available on the billing document.


When the extensibility settings are complete, the user will be able to enter an item category code in a delivery document. The same code will then be visible to a user working with its billing document.
