Q: Is it necessary to uninstall an older version of the add-on before installing a new one?
No, there's no need to manually uninstall the old version. Simply install the newer version directly; the system will automatically handle the uninstallation of the older version during the installation process.
Q: Do I need to upgrade the B1UP whenever I upgrade SAP?
Generally, a major SAP upgrade requires a B1UP upgrade as well. However, for minor patches (PL), an upgrade is usually not necessary. That said, there are exceptions since SAP may implement changes in minor patches that affect compatibility, although this is uncommon.
Q: Will upgrading result in the loss of my configurations?
No, your configurations will not be lost upon upgrading.
Q: Will I need to modify my configurations after an upgrade?
It varies. Typically, upgrading B1UP alone doesn't necessitate changes to configurations. However, simultaneous upgrades of SAP and B1UP might require adjustments due to updates in the SAP Client's appearance and features. The specific changes needed depend on the particularities of the upgrade.
Q: Can I be confident that B1UP will function with the latest SAP version?
Due to the dynamic nature of B1UP, it's challenging to guarantee compatibility with every new SAP patch. While most of the time B1UP operates smoothly with new releases, unforeseen issues may arise. If B1UP's functionality is critical for your operations, we recommend submitting a support ticket to inquire about our experiences with specific patches. Please be patient as it takes us some time to thoroughly test each patch and identify any potential issues.
Q: Is downgrading B1UP an option?
While technically feasible, downgrading B1UP is not advised unless strictly necessary. It involves uninstalling the current version before installing the older version. Be aware that if you've used features available in the newer version, they may not be present in the older version.
