      Hi Severin de Beaulieu

      as usual the long term maintenance version (1.108) is coming with the first FPS (usually within Q1/2023).

      That´s why end of maintenance for 1.102 is end of Q1/2023

      See blogpost from Margot

      And here the current versions

      Well, the answer to this is "not yet". As you can see in SAP Note 2217489 the comprised SAP_UI  component for S/4H 2022 is currently only available with the interim SAPUI5 version 1.102. But SAP_UI 7.57 SP02 will upgrade the SAPUI5 version to 1.108. You can find the schedule for the delivery of SAP_UI support packages on this page in the SAP Support Portal. According to this page, the planned delivery date is Feb. 22, 2023.

      Is it possible to update SAP_UI SP only without updating SAP FES 2022?

      In this case SAP_UI 757 0001 => SAP_UI 757 0002 (SAP FES 2022 SP00) which contains long term maintenance version (1.108).

      I can't find any sap note about this.


      Using MP the update of SAP FES 2022 SP01 provides SAP_UI 757 0002.
