The SBO-Common is the core database used in the B1 architecture to store and distribute information common to all company databases.
The common database that holds;
- System Data,
- Version Information
- Upgrade Information
- doesn’t contain the Patch Level number
Unlike company databases, SBO-COMMON doesn’t store any business or transactional data,
Shared folder B1 SHR that contains
- central configuration data

When connecting to a company database the B1 client or any add-ons using the SDK will look for this database to retrieve specific information.
