SAP Subscription Billing S/4HANA Public Cloud

Hello Experts,

We have a customer that has SAP Subscription Billing, S/4HANA Public Cloud solution in place. 

For the integration part they have Salesforce integration with SAP Subscription Billing and S/4.

One clarification I have here is we are facing lot of challenges with SAP Subscription Billing having Event Broker, replication issues in place and customer wants to go live in a couple of months which is not realistic to happen for these issues to be resolved.

The products that this customer have has all the subscription services they do but is there a way we can skip using Subscription Billing and directly create Subscriptions using API calls in S/4? First question is, is this possible and second question is how to approach this subscriptions items till invoicing? Because I tried by creating a sales order or sales contract, but system didn't allow because there was no assigned combination of item category maintained for the subscription items.

Please advise on the above. @stefan_kiene @shpresimshabaj

Hi @Brinda911,

Thanks for your question. To create subscriptions from S/4, you may try creating a solution order (with subscription billing items) that has been integrated with SAP Subscription Billing plus a Sales Billing capability to Finance.

For more information, please see Integration of Solution Order Management with SAP Subscription Billing.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Best regards,

Wei

Thanks, Wei, for your quick response! But again, in the link you mentioned it's asking to enable subscription management which involves those enterprise eventing integration, communication scenarios, replication customer, products, rate elements and subscriptions and stuff which we are facing lots of errors with. My question is more likely trying to get rid of Subscription Billing instead is it possible to directly create subscriptions using API calls in S/4?

Please advise @Wei 

Thanks!
