The Insurance Dunning Progression business object is used as an information unit that contains information that is relevant for dunning for a specified insurance contract. The dunning information that you can obtain or send includes the dunning notices for a dunning procedure, the dunning level of a dunning procedure, the status of the dunning procedure, the beginning or the end of the dunning procedure, the dunned amounts, or the dunning charges of the insurance company.
In Collections/Disbursements, you can map your dunning system using the following two concepts:
Dunning by Collection Strategy does not create dunning procedures or instances for the
Insurance Dunning Progression
Therefore, you only use the service interfaces of this business object for dunning processes of dunning by dunning procedure for insurance companies.
All service interfaces of this business object can only be used if the business function set SAP for Insurance is activated.
To be able to send the dunning information for an insurance contract, a dunning notice, and the dunning procedure to which it belongs, must be available in the SAP ERP back-end system. An update to the dunning notice (such as raising the dunning level) can trigger the communication of dunning-related events. Feeder systems can gather information about a dunning procedure, depending on the settings and the business requirements. In the SAP ERP back-end system, the insurance contract is mapped as an insurance object.
To use the operations contained in the business object, you must configure Collections and Disbursements (FS-CD). In the SAP ERP back-end system, a current dunning procedure bundles several dunning headers according to the dunning grouping in the dunning variant.
The dunning procedures and dunning levels are defined in Customizing.
If a communication partner wants to be notified about changes to the Insurance Dunning Progression business object (for example, change to the dunning level, the end of the dunning procedure, or the reopening of a dunning procedure) from Collections/Disbursement (FS-CD) ( Notify of Insurance Dunning Progression service operation), you must make the following settings:
