    Hi Volker,

    We’re performing a support  patch update from Solman 7.1 SP8 to SP16. For now, we’re not able to upgrade to Solman 7.2 and we won’t be going to S4 HANA or SAP HANA anytime this year.

    The pre-requisites in the new kpi catalogue in the link you provided states in the USAGE for KPI Categories: Solman 7.2, but do this also apply to the new BPMON KPIs Solman 7.1 SP16? If not, do you have a link for this too?

    Regards,

    Jay

      Hello James,

       

      I have to admit that I do not fully get your question which “USAGE” information you mean, but as the key figure definition is shipped with ST-A/PI and implemented on ECC (independent from the SolMan release) the key figures are availble for SolMan 7.1 as well as 7.2.

      Kind Regards

      Volker
