The UI5 team wants to emphasize the importance of this topic as some outdated UI5 versions are still in use. To ensure outdated versions are no longer posing a potential security risk, it is common practice to remove them from cloud delivery. We decided to
Remove SAPUI5 / OpenUI5 versions from the CDN one year after their end of maintenance. In addition, also patches of versions in maintenance which are older than one year will be removed.
See the maintenance status of the UI5 version in the SAPUI5 version overview and the OpenUI5 version overview respectively.We begin with the removal in Q3/2021 so that all affected SAP customers and partners have time to react. Depending on your initial situation and whether you want to adopt latest SAP Fiori innovations, our recommendation is to upgrade to a long-term maintenance version:
- to SAPUI5 / OpenUI5 1.38 from versions below 1.38
- to SAPUI5 / OpenUI5 1.71 / 1.84 from other versions
In general, also plan to regularly consume the latest patch level of the respective version.
Please notice: this in no way means a change in the maintenance strategy / support duration of UI5 versions: Affected are UI5 versions on CDN one year after their end of maintenance.For your reference see SAP note 3001696 and further information on developing and running secure SAPUI5 apps in Securing Apps. Also see more details on SAPUI5 versioning, upgrading and compatibility rules.
