SAP BusinessObjects

BI 4.3 SP01 users please review the following before using InfoBurst 2021 with BI 4.3.

  • Crystal Reports Users: Build 240 is not forwards-compatible with BI 4.3 SP01. Crystal Reports users moving to BI 4.3 must move to the latest 2021 version.
  • SAP BusinessObjects Folder and Inbox Deliveries: BI 4.3 SP01 introduced an issue that affects SAP BusinessObjects Folder and SAP BusinessObjects Inbox deliveries. The upload that occurs during this type of delivery fails with BI 4.3. SAP resolved the issue in BI 4.3 SP01 Patch 5.
