SAP Solutions OnDemand Studio: New Common Name & Build, New Release Numbers, New Features

With the latest version of the studio (SDK), the name, the build strategy and the release numbers changes.

Let me start with the last point.

As of 2013 SAP´s cloud products (ByDesign, Customer OnDemand, SuccessFactors products) share common release number that consist of year and month (YYMM), for example 1302 and 1305. For ByDesign, 1302 is the successor of ByDesign 4.0.

As of version 1302, there is only one joined build of the Studio for ByDesign, Customer OnDemand and additional supported cloud products (see figure, below). So, if you work for ByDesign and Customer OD, you have to install only one frontend instead of two.

As a consequence, we had to find a common name for the studio – the new name is SAP Solutions OnDemand Studio.

Finally I want to answer the question, does a joined build for ByDesign and Customer OD mean that the same content types are available for ByDesign and Customer OD (and for other products)? The answer is: In general yes, but there are still differences. The most important ones are that thing-based UIs are not supported in ByDesign and scalable solutions are not supported for Customer OD. You can find the detailed information on the features in the Feature Matrix in the documentation, see What’s New in SAP Solutions OnDemand Studio Version February 2013 (1302) or https://help.sap.com/studio_od.

The SAP Solutions OD Studio 1302 is now available on the Service Marketplace, http://service.sap.com/swdc -> Search for Software Downloads, Search Term “SAP SOLUTIONS OD STUDIO 1302”.

For backend access, you need separate tenants for ByDesign 1302 & for Customer OD 1302. Solutions (custom-specific solutions and template solutions) cannot be uploaded or imported from ByDesign to Customer OD and vice versa.

      Is for ByDesign 4.0? The name for ByDesign 4.0 will not change. The change to the new name will be for the SDK for 1302.

      Best regards,

      So there are still 2 downloads? or is 1302 after the 4.0 one released last week? If so how do we locate it in the download center.

      Excuse my total ignorance, but I can't find any builds on the Marketplace. What should I be searching for?

      Hi Judson, William,

      the 1302 build is not yet on the marketplace. The announcement of ByDesign 1302 & Customer OD 1302 will come these days. It will be uploaded the next days.

      For the old released nothing will change:

      ByDesign 4.0 -> ByDesign Studio 4.0 (technically version 2.40)

      Customer OD 1206 -> Cloud Developer Studio 1.0

      Customer OD 1211 -> Cloud Developer Studio 1.5

      Best regards, Thomas

      Hey Thomas,

      Thanks for these good news.

      There are new tenants required?

      If we have to request new tenants there are also a solution move for our scalable solutions necessary?

      Best regards,

      Kay

      Hello Kay,

      the tenant setup itself does not change. This means you need a 1302 tenant for ByDesign and for Customer OD. We are working on a consolidation on the backend, but this is not yet possible in 1302.

      For scalables, the procedure for getting from one release to the next is still the solution move to provide the flexibility for you to decide on the date.

      For custom-specific solutions and solution templates, the procedure for getting from one release to the next is the system upgrade.

      Best regards,

      Thomas

      Is anyone able to download the Studio 1302 outside SAP network?

      I, for one, wasn't even able to locate in the search. I tried all possible combinations of "SAP SOLUTIONS OD STUDIO 1302", but the search result did not return anything at all.

      Hi Asif,

      I can defnitely confirm that customers can download software from the SMP. Please let the colleagues from operation check your user authorizations. Please open an incident on the services marketplace using the component XX-SER-SAPSMP-ACC.

      Best regards,

      Thomas

      Hi Asif,

      I can confirm that I have the same problem like you. Besides, I am even not able to download ANY ByD Studio release. Two weeks ago it worked without problems.

      I have already opened an incident as you described. I am told that we do not own a license to download it and the support contact excludes any technical issues. But that´s not true. We are ByD Partners since January 2013.

      Best Regards,

      Rufat

      Hi Rufat,

      this is not a technical issue nor a question on the SDK itself. The colleagues from SMP operations do not have access to your contract. A colleague from partner management will check.

      • Partners with an S-user: please refer to SAP Note 1037574 ,
      • Please open an incident on the services marketplace using the component XX-SER-SAPSMP-SWC.
      • else contact Partner Management (solutionpartnerbydesign@sap.com).

      Unfortunately, from SAP development, we have no influence on the contract and the authorizations of you S users. I can only appologize for the inconvenience.

      Best regards,

      Thomas

      Hi Thomas,

      On Marketplace under software downloads, could you please specify out of the many options that come on searching the Studio 1302, which one we need to select for installing the studio?

      Many Thanks

      Hi Ankur,
      I understand your confusion. Let me try to clarify the situation. SAP Products are organized hierarchically in three levels:

      Product (Software Component)
        => Product Version (Software Component Version)
           => Support Packages and Patches

      In Case of the SAP Solutions OnDemand Studio the corresponding objects are:

      Product: SAP SOLUTIONS ONDEMAND STUDIO
        => Product Version: SAP SOLUTIONS OD STUDIO 1302
          => Support Package 00: SOLODSTUDIO00_0-10012357.MSI
          => Support Package 01: SOLODSTUDIO01_0-10012357.MSI   
          ...
          => Support Package 10: SOLODSTUDIO10_0-10012357.MSI

      At the moment only one product version is available on the Service Market Place for download. In some weeks the next Product Version: SAP SOLUTIONS OD STUDIO 1305 will be added. When you now search for SAP SOLUTIONS OD STUDIO 1302 in the Service Market Place with the default Search Object Types selected you will find many entries of the above hierarchy.

      To prevent confusion I suggest selecting only 'Product Version' for the search. This leads  to one search result from which you can drill-down to the Support Packages and Patches. There select the newest one for installation.

      Kind Regards,
      Thomas Kretz

      Hi Thomas,

      thanks for the answer!

      Hi Ankur all,

      sorry for the confusion. Unfortunately we have to use service marketplace (SMP), for distributing the our SDK. The SMP is designed for distributing all the SAP software to all SAP customers. Thererore, it is "oversizes" for our use case. But the SAP policy forces us to use this tool (which is understandable from a global SAP point of view). Therefore we only applogize fo the confusion.

      Best regards,

      Thomas

      Hi Thomas,

      That's OK. I understand availabilty of Studio through SMP, no issues in that, however confusion comes in when it's a new thing, & partners/customers have limited information available at hand...

      Anyway, I shall come back to you in case of any queries.

      Many Thanks for Posting!
