SAP Fiori Lessons Learned 09.

Check the latest Support Package Level.

Background:

I see several customers did not install the latest support package and wasted their time for unnecessary trouble shooting. Functional consultant does not know how to check support package level. It also does not make a sense that customers go live with old support packages.

 

Lessons Learned:

Please make sure that the system has the latest support package for Fiori apps before you start configuration.

 

Here are steps how to check support package level.

 

Step 1. Find the technical component name.

 

Example: Approve Leave Requests

http://help.sap.com/fiori -> Catalog of SAP Fiori Apps -> Approve Leave Requests

  •   Required product release: FIORI ERP APPLICATIONS X1 1.0

SAP Fiori – Add-on quick reference for transactional apps

For example, Add-on package for Approve Leave Requests, UIX01HCM is the UI component on Gateway and GBHCM003 is the OData components on ERP.

Step 2. Check the current support package level on system,

Logon to server via SAP GUI. System -> Status

Select detail button for component version.

SAP_BASIS is 731.

For example, support package for UIX01HCM is SP00 in this system.

Step 3. Check the latest support package in SAP Service Marketplace.

Download components from http://service.sap.com/swdc

Support Packages and Patches -> A-Z Index -> F -> SAP Fiori -> SAP Fiori for Suite

Select the package for SAP_BASIS version.  This example is for SAP_BASIS 731.

    Hi Masa,

    I agree that customer ideally should go live with the lastest support packs to avoid encountering issues for which SAP has already provided a fix (SAP note).

    In some cases customers may want to implement the latest support pack for one Fiori app, e.g. Approve Leave Requests, but not for others, e.g. Shopping Cart. Is this possible or are there dependencies?

    Thanks,

    Frank

      HI Masa,

      Can I directly go to SP07 from SP00 Level?

      Or, do I need to go level by level i.e. Level 00 to level 1 , thn Level 1 to Level 03 and so on till 07 for UI and Gateway addons.

      Regards,

      Tejas

    Hi Masa,

    Very nice blog.

    Do you think it is necessary to update this blog?

    For example,

    There is another entry point to check whether the component SP level is the latest one or not.

    regards,
