There are several components and features in the Stewardship Tier (formerly DSP) - such as Collect and Integrate - that can communicate with S/4HANA applications via remote function calls (RFC). Following the release of
S/4HANA 2021 in October of 2021, we have seen some of these RFCs from the Stewardship Tier are breaking after customers upgrade their S/4HANA application. These are the issues discovered so far:
- 'RFC Extract' button in Data Source Registry returns 0 records.
- Collect Tables with RFC package types return error instead of downloading data.
- 'Create BAPI Template' button in Integrate returns error "failed when retrieving metadata".
With the release of Stewardship Tier
7.4.9, we have resolved the RFC issues encountered with
S/4HANA 2021. Anybody experiencing these issues or considering the upgrade to
S/4HANA 2021 should plan to upgrade their Stewardship Tier to
7.4.9 or later. It is available for direct customers to download via a ticket at support.syniti.com. Customers' Stewardship Tier instances that are hosted by Syniti will be upgraded as per their agreed upgrade schedule.
Note: Syniti has worked with SAP to expedite the release approval process for our SolEx (Solution Extension) customers. Currently, requests for
Advanced Data Migration 7.4 by Syniti should be provided the
7.4.9 release of the Stewardship Tier. If you have any questions regarding this SolEx release, please send them to your company's SAP account manager.
