What is Credit Group in SAP?

The credit group in SAP SD determines which transactions needed to be blocked for processing in case the credit limits are exceeded. Credit groups help SAP users group various different business documents like sales orders, quotations, and more.

The credit limit check is processed on the basis of data from these business documents and assigns the amount of credit limit. The Credit Group is defined using Transaction Code OVA6.
