STEP 19: Import solutions from SAP Best Practices content. Enter tCode /N/SMB/BBI. Choose menu Solution -> Import -> Solution (XML) -> From reference content

21 February 2017 or later

After import is complete log will be displayed.

STEP 20: Import Installation Data. Choose Menu Solution -> Import -> Installation Data -> From reference content and Select solution INST_FILES_AU_BP_S4BL_S4HANA1611_OP.ZIP

Click on column “Changed On” 2 times to change sort order and select second line as below

Select solution INST_FILES_AU_BP_S4BL_S4HANA1611_OP.ZIP verify that the date is equal to the XML file (BP_OP_ENTPR_S4HANA1611_USV3.XML) imported before and then click Ok

Please (3) copy with installation data and exit.

Define scope of your solution if needed by clicking on Change icon.

Click OK and then click on Favorite to make this solution as your favorite


STEP 22: Check installed languages if you don’t have the complete scope, then go through note 2309549 – Identify completely installed languages for the report /SMB/REMOVE_NOTINST_LANG_IMG.

NOTE: The report deletes SAP Best Practice Content for all released languages that are not successfully installed in the system. After having deleted SAP Best Practice content for such languages with this report, you won’t be able to add languages-dependent SAP Best Practice content again. Therefore make a conscious decision to run the report, understanding the implication that for languages not installed in the system, but released for the solution, all language dependent content of IMG activities would be deleted. Adding further languages later is currently not supported”

Enter tCode SE38, run report /SMB/REMOVE_NOTINST_LANG_IMG. You can run in simulation mode if needed and then in update mode.


Languages updated


STEP 23: (OPTIONAL): Best Practices content activation for any solution will populate the client currency as USD by default. In case you want to have a different client currency, you should change the currency before activation starts. You should not change client currency once the first solution in the client is activated.

Enter tCode /N/SMB/BBI -> Building Block Builder, Menu Installation Data -> Central Data

Select DSC – /SMB99/STD_CURR_DSC_J01, click over “Maintain” and change field “I_MWAER” to the currency you will use in the client. Example below shows AUD

Confirm and then close
