This blog post describes a business need for the extension of a standard search feature with custom search parameters. It also provides information on how to add this filter to the header of a business context in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.

For example, the company has enhanced the bank master data with details of the sales office, and this needs to be included as an additional filter criteria in the search parameters.


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