SAP Subscription Billing, SAP S/4HANA Cloud Clarification

Hello Experts,

We have a customer with SAP Subscription Billing solution, with integration of 57Z. Has anyone used this solution of 57Z? 

Please correct me if I'm understanding correctly.

First, we have to create subscriptions, rate elements and products in SUB BILL system and then subscriptions are replicated as provider contracts, rate elements and products are replicated as products in SAP.

In SAP we initially thought it has to be Sales Order or Sales Contract, but I tried to create a sales order with subscription products manually created inside SAP with SBPD, SBRE material type it said there is no item category available for subscription products, could anybody clarify that possible to create a sales order with subscription products?

Then I searched SAP help portal that it has to be a solution order in SAP with service items, sales items and subscription items can be added and when released it will create subsequent documents automatically.

But I can't find one created for subscription products. Also, should we need to create any subscription products manually inside SAP or only via replication handled? If so to create manually, do we need valuation class? Also, couldn't find one for subscription products created.

Also, replications is not working properly maintained below settings in the integration settings for Subscription Billing system.

Hello @Brinda911 ,

Please make sure you check the data flow overview so you see the chronology of objects needed to be created and replicated. Then please go through the set up document and make sure that you have the configurations done correctly in SB, CPI, Event Mesh and S/4HanaCloud systems. I think this should help you to get an overview how the data flows between the systems. Links can be found below.

Just another quick question, for the customer and product to replicate as well we need event mesh or event broker or can we acheive them with API’s? I understood from the setup diagram from SAP that only subscriptions need event mesh or event broker in place for replication? @shpresimshabaj @stefan_kiene 

Correct me if I’m wrong.

Hi @Brinda911, unfortunately it seems like I can't post pictures in these comments here. But please check the upper part of the diagram als referenced by @shpresimshabaj: https://help.sap.com/docs/subscription-billing/integration/data-flow-overview For both customers and products, no eventing is involved. You have the option of MDI (preferred) or iFlow based on API calls.
