Two years ago we announced that the B1 Document Manager Module would go into legacy-mode as of January 2020 and now is the time to take the next step and retire the product entirely from January 2022. This article will try to explain all your question on this process.
Q: What are legacy and retirement?
A: It is all described in the Boyum Product Lifecycle Management Article here: https://support.boyum-it.com/hc/en-us/articles/360033724053
Q: What exactly will happen in January 2022?
A: The following 3 things will happen:
- In B1UP 2022.02 release B1 Document Manager Module will be removed from the product
- Support will not help with this Module anymore (not even premium support)
- Any bugs found or incompatibilities issues due to new SAP releases will not be fixed
Q: Can I continue to use the module if I do not upgrade to a 2022.x release?
A: Yes, but as mentioned we will not offer any type of support so use it at your own risk.
Q: Will my data be deleted if I upgrade to a 2022.x release?
A: No, we will leave all data in place, but will not offer GUI to manipulate or add it anymore.
Q: Do you offer a replacement product?
A: No, we instead recommend you seek out some of the other Document Management Offerings.
