The SAP transports for Stewardship Tier installations are now split into 2 packages and are documented separately.

  • Core—contains the functions and programs required by Stewardship Tier to extract data via RFC and load via BDC. These transports are distributed with the Stewardship Tier installation in versions 7.4.8 and later.

  • Supplementary—miscellaneous functions, programs, and utilities for supporting SAP-based projects. Contact Syniti Support and raise a support ticket to get this transport.

The code in the Core transports has been modernized to adhere to latest ABAP coding standards. Both the Core and Supplementary transports are compatible with SAP installations of EHP 7 FOR SAP ERP 6.0 [SAP_APPL 617] (based on SAP NETWEAVER 740 [SAP_BASIS 740]) or higher.

NOTE: Customers using older versions of SAP can contact Syniti Support who will assist in locating versions of the required programs and functions that are compatible with their SAP Instance.

Refer to Support Article SAP Transports for 7.4.8 and Above for SAP Transports available when running version 7.4.8.


NOTE: If psaCollate is installed on the instance you are upgrading, you must uninstall it before upgrading to this version. The collation technology is included in the product in 7.4.5 and later. To uninstall psaCollate refer to the Knowledge Base article psaCollate Incompatible with SST 7.4.5+.

NOTE: When upgrading to Stewardship Tier 7.4.5 AND LATER, data sources are automatically assigned with the Collation Type of General Latin Case-insensitive. This ensures that the ADM AutoGen continues to create SQL tables whose text columns have a case-insensitive collation.

NOTE: When upgrading to Stewardship Tier 7.4.6 AND LATER, open a support ticket with Syniti Support to request a new license in order to use Entity Validation and Migration Reports. If using Entity Validation, you must also request a Melissa license.

NOTE: A new, critical step has been added to the Post Upgrade section of the Installation process. After an upgrade to Stewardship Tier, users must re-create their BAPI templates. Failing to do so will cause the posting of a BAPI template to fail. Refer to Re-create BAPI Templates in the Install Manual for more information.

NOTE IF YOU ARE UPGRADING FROM 7.0.6 OR BELOW: You may need to migrate your security settings to use centralized security. Users of Data Quality (formerly dspMonitor), Master Data Management (formerly dspConduct), and Mass Maintenance (formerly dspCompose) must update security roles when upgrading to this version. Refer to the Syniti Solutions Centralized Security Migration Manual for important information about using security in the Stewardship Tier in this version and later. Consult this manual BEFORE updating to this version, as an analysis of current security assignments must be completed before the Stewardship Tier can be updated.

NOTE IF YOU ARE UPGRADING TO 7.4.2 OR HIGHER: Please be aware that any JavaScript content added is stripped away and any remaining, safe HTML is displayed to users. In Stewardship Tier versions 7.4.1 and earlier, users were permitted to enter HTML and have it rendered in the UI or included in file downloads from the UI. There were no restrictions in place on what HTML/JavaScript text was permitted, leading to potentially dangerous cross-site scripting attacks. Refer to the Knowledge base article Unsafe HTML/JavaScript removed in Stewardship Tier 7.4.2 for more information.

WARNING: Customizations made to any component of the delivered Syniti Solutions will be overwritten in the next upgrade. To preserve customizations, make a copy of the customizations prior to applying any upgrade.

A customization is a change to the underlying source code, which differs from configuration – normal setup of the software, such as setting up workflows and defining parameters via the configuration pages.


Stewardship Tier

It is now possible to configure Single Sign On (SSO) for the Stewardship Tier and the Knowledge Platform for a seamless and secure user experience. Refer to Enable Single Sign On for more information.

Master Data Management

To improve auditing of request data, for the Reject and Reset events, the ttRequestRoleLog table now stores the Resetter and Rejecter UserIDs and the date and time when the role was reset or rejected.

Resolved Issues

Advanced Data Migration


Fixed an issue on the Mapping Approval page when a user selected multiple rows and clicked the Approve or Complete icons. Sometimes the event took too long to complete. With the fix, clicking Approve or Complete on the Mapping Approval page with multiple rows selected results in the actions being performed on the selected rows and no timeout in processing. [DSP70-1939]

Stewardship Tier


  • Corrected an issue within theTables page where the Target Source Table Package for Package Types of "SAP Data Services with RFC" was ignoring added Where Clause values during the Data Service Data Flow query. The fix adds the Where Clause to the job build package when it is initially built and applies changes including the Where Clause for existing SAP Data Services jobs. [DSP70-1415]

  • Corrected an issue within the Tables page where the Target Source Table Package for Package Types of 'SAP Data Services' was ignoring added Where Clause updates when packages were rebuilt. The fix rebuilds the package including Where Clause changes. [DSP70-1645]

  • When filtering on the Tables page, if a user selected the Checked or Unchecked option in the Built section, a validation error displayed: “The entered value is not a valid integer.” With the fix, these filters can be used without receiving this error. [DSP70-1972]


Corrected an issue within the Structures - Data Sub Tables page for Collect - Target Source Table where the table columns and the SQL Command details were not included when moving a Collect Target/Source/Table structure to a new system. With the fix, these two sub-tables are included in the promotion. [DSP70-1814]

Master Data Management

Fixed two issues around the notifications sent after the Post event:

  • Duplicate emails were being sent.

  • If the user had selected to receive the notification via email, it was displaying in a notification instead.

With these fixes, one email is sent for each Post event notification using the user’s selected workflow receipt preference. [DSP70-1976]

Known Issues

In Collect, provided two solutions to an issue within Schedule Groups page where a Collect job in the queue for Data Services jobs with other pending jobs produces inaccurate overall processing time.

  • A suggestion is to put all Data Services packages for a Source in a Collect Target Source and then have that Target Source use a separate queue created specifically for the Data Service related collect jobs. Also, make sure that the Service Pages page queue has enough threads so that Services pages are not backed up.

  • An alternate solution is to increase speed for the interval on the Common Data Services Job polling within the Service Pages page to cut down the wait time between when the Data Services job finishes and when the second job is created.
