This SAP Note describes known limitations in SAP Business One Browser Access.


You may refer to the known limitations in the following table:

# Description Category

Cockpit function is not supported (Administration -> System Initialization -> General Settings -> Cockpit); relevant menus are disabled:
– Tools -> Cockpit
– Window -> Show/Hide All Widgets
– Window -> Auto Arrange All Widgets

However, Fiori-style Cockpit function for SAP HANA is supported.

2 After you change user default language and re-logon to the company DB, it does not take effect for some languages. To solve this problem, close and re-open the browser. General
3 You may expect delay for some front-end notifications, for example, add-on messages, progress bar messages, and alerts. General
4 Timeout error may occur for time-consuming operations. General
5 Drag operation is not supported. For example, you cannot drag an appointment to another time slot on SBO Calendar. The “Drag & Relate” function is not supported. General
6 Form mode cannot be changed automatically unless you press the Tab key. General

Graphs cannot be displayed in a report that is designed using Print Layout Designer. Some system level pie/bar/chart may not show correctly in the report.

10 Dashboard in sidebar is not supported. Analytics

One-time configurations should be implemented in the traditional SAP Business One client:
– You cannot add/remove items in Common Functions widget of the Fiori-style Cockpit.
– Server-side folder browse is disabled. For example, on the General Settings: Path tab, the buttons are disabled for the folder selection; you can set the path in the traditional SAP Business One client.
– The Pending Add-Ons tab and the Failed Add-Ons for Lightweight Development tab in the Add-On Manager window are hidden in browser access mode. You can use traditional SAP Business One client to implement the features. If you are using SAP Business One Cloud, first, you must configure the Browser Access server as a presentation server, and then you can logon to the SAP Business One client.

One-time configuration

The UI related design time (including Crystal Reports, Print Layout Designer, the Edit Form UI function, the Shortcut Customization function, and so on) is not supported.

13 Some system initialization and configuration should be performed in traditional SAP Business One client. For example:
– Creating a new company from the Solution Packager is not supported in Browser Access mode; use the feature in SAP Business One client

You may refer to the following table for minor limitations that may not have a perceptible impact on your daily operations:

# Description Category
1 Real time input validation is not supported, which is by design to gain better performance. When you enter values in a field, the values can be sent to the server only once you have finished editing the field and moved the cursor out. For example, the search function, fuzzy inquiry function is not supported, you need to press the Enter or Tab key to show the search result. General
2 In browser access mode, the window position and size is not remembered once you close it.
3 In Windows desktop mode, if the current item in focus is textbox1, and if the user clicks any blank space that does not grab the focus, textbox1 will still hold the focus. However, in browser access mode, textbox1 will lose focus. General
4 Some keyboard shortcuts for SAP Business One conflict with the default browser keyboard shortcuts.
For example, in a Web browser, the keyboard shortcut CTRL+TAB is also for switching tabs.
5 Changing font and font size are not supported. General
6 Tooltips in forms and grids are not supported. General
7 If an inner window extends beyond the boundary of the native Web browser window, the extended part may be cut off.

To see the full dropdown button, resize the document form. General
8 When you maximize a report form, it will hide the upper tool bar, main menu, and system message log. General
9 If you install the client and the server in one machine, after you change the system time in the machine, it will change server time accordingly.

14 In the Implementation Project window (Administration -> System Initialization -> Implementation Center -> Implementation Project), you can edit the completed items. General
15 In the Windows desktop mode, some checkboxes cannot be checked manually, the application marks them as checked after you make some configurations. However, these checkboxes are editable in the browser access mode. General
16 Forecast is not supported. General
17 When you need to log off and logon Browser Access again, you should clean the latest history files manually, and then logon. General
