Upgrading to SAP CRM EHP4 - things to consider
If you plan to upgrade CRM 7.0 to EhP4, you should take care of certain things, like for instance, your custom-code as it can cause problems...
A series of repository objects in CRM (more precisely: in software component BBPCRM) have been renamed in CRM 7.0 EhP4, for technical reasons. This means that 1:1 copies of these objects have been created, and all usages of the original objects have been adjusted to the new objects. The original objects have been isolated in the new software component CRM_PLUS. A few of the original objects had to be deleted from the system.
There might be an impact on custom code: If a customer specific development uses one of the objects which were renamed, it is recommended to replace it with the new object. If the original object was deleted, this is a mandatory action. If the old object is still available, corrections and enhancements will only be performed for the new object as of EhP4.
For convenience, SAP Note 2215543 contains an attachment with all objects which were renamed in EhP4. This file also contains the information whether the old object still exists in the CRM server installation, or whether it was deleted.
Take care of your custom-code!
