Table of Contents

 

The following release notes cover the versions of Qlik Connector for use with SAP NetWeaver, released in v8.0.2. 

What's new in Qlik Connector for use with SAP NetWeaver v8.0.2

Note: All components are recompiled for new releases. It is recommended that you always update both the SAP and Windows systems. There is backwards compatibility to the SAP code, so it is possible to install the new release of the connector on Windows without installing the corresponding SAP transports. In that case, however, new functionality and bug fixes that are dependent on changes in the SAP code are not available. New features and bug fixes in Qlik Connector for use with SAP NetWeaver v8.0.2 that are dependent on changes in the SAP code are marked with: (Requires SAP transport update).
See below for the current backwards compatibility of the components of the connector package.

Installation process

The SAP Connectors installation process has been updated, in compliance with SAP regulations. Visit the Qlik Helpsite for further details:
https://help.qlik.com/en-US/connectors/Subsystems/SAP_Connectors_Help/Content/Connectors_SAP/Install...

Deletion of records in Qlik database tables

If there is a need to perform the deletion at the same time as connector jobs are running, use the transaction /N/QTQVC/DELETE_SAFE (program /QTQVC/DELETE_TABLES_SAFE). The program can be executed anytime without affecting ongoing connector jobs since it does not delete records from the latest week. Read more in the Qlik Helpsite. (Requires SAP transport update).

Jira issue ID: QB-10032
