S/4HANA Conversion: Add-On Uninstallation Simulation Tool

In S/4HANA Conversion Projects (aka. Brownfield) one showstopper can be the uninstallation of Add-Ons. Often this causes trouble during SUM Procedure. There is a little section for this in the Convesion Guide (Chapter 3.5) – see

In order to check this upfront and even simulate it, SAP developed a “Add-On Uninstallation Simulation Tool”. Introduced with SPAM Version 74 this Simulation Tool is available. With this Tool you can only simulate not delete Add-Ons!

All prerequisites are described here:

Transaction Code: SIM_UNINST

Choose your component and click “Simulate” and you can see the results.

Example 1: Add-On GBX01HR – Fiori X1 HCM

This is relatively easy and a corresponding SAP Notes is already linked with further information. All operations are already predefined and no further action is required.

Already simulated components are marked with a little flag in column “Simulation”. Click on the flag and see the results of your Simulation.

Example 2: Add-On UIAPFI70 – UI SFIN

This is a little more effort, because there is no predefined operation. Hence you have to simulate your selected operation. In edit mode you can select operation “ignore / delete” for each line.

Once done you can simulate. In the results your operation is considered (I chose “delete”). In this case it even gives you the proposed coding for a “Plugin Class” that needs to be created for deletion, which is very helpful.

Example 3: 3rd Party Add-On – OpenText

Also Third Party Add-Ons are recognized by the Tool and can be simulated.

Even coding for plugin class is generated.

Cheers Marco

      Interesting one Marco Wahler!

      Haven't tried it.I'll check it for next S/4 conversion.

      Hope it works for 3rd party add-ons too.
