External Billing Document Request

With this object page, you can display the details of external billing document requests (EBDRs). EBDRs are request objects that serve to transform and persist billing data that your SAP S/4HANA system has received from an external source (such as an external SAP or non-SAP system). EBDRs enable you to bill external billing data from different sources. Moreover, you can converge external billing data (for example, pay-per-use data) with internal billing data (for example, billable items from a delivery). This enables you to bill customers for offerings that combine different billing types through a combined, single invoice.

Additional Details

After your SAP S/4HANA system receives external billing data and persists it in the form of EBDRs, these EBDRs appear in the billing due list of the Create Billing Documents app. From the billing due list, they can be billed independently or converged with other billing due list items.

Effects on Customizing

To enable some of the convergent billing use cases, you need to make the necessary settings in Customizing to set up the correct billing types. For more information about this, see the corresponding Configuration Guide (scope item 1MC) in the SAP Best Practices Explorer.
