SAP GRC AC Upgrade from 10.0 to 10.1

Hi Experts,

We are planning to Upgrade our SAP GRC AC from 10.0 to 10.1. Please advise if the upgrade from 10.0 to 10.1 is going to impact the existing data. For example: we have done all the configurations and connections for Firefighters in GRC 10.0 and we have been using it to assign Firefighters to the users and generate all the Firefighter log reports.

My questions are:

After we upgrade from GRC 10.0 to 10.1- Do we have to re-do all the configurations for firefighters and connections to all the systesms? Are all the firefighter log reports going to be available from 10.0?

Regards,

Krishna

    To answer your question specifically which I did not do previously:

    No you don't have to redo all the configurations or set up new connectors.  Yes, all existing data will be available after your upgrade, including the FF log reports.  Witih that being said, please see my comments above about new IMG settings and AC Configuration parameters.

    Thanks..

    We are also planning to upgrade from AC 10.0 to 10.1 and have similar concerns
    like

    1. Any existing functionality will be lost after upgrade ?

    2. Any impact on Risk analysis Custom rule set ?

    3. Do we have to worry about existing configuration setting like Parameter settings, connection mappings, Connectors ?

    4. Can anyone share expiriences on issues faced upgrade from GRC AC 10.0 to 10.1 ?

    I read this SAP note 1997982 GRC 10.0 upgrade to latest SP or 10.1 but don't find anything related to impact/issues after upgrade

    • Salman:  With that information, I would suspect that you should have an easy upgrade.  You are however making a significant leap in program coding.  I would recommend that you also upgrade your TARGET Plug-ins at the same time to the version you are upgrading to.

      The big thing with ARA will be the new UI5 views that you can utilize (if you choose to use it), such as the remediation view.  You will need to understand the requirements from an browser perspective as well as having an SAP Gateway (either in the GRC system or connected to a separate SAP Gatway instance depending on your SAP Landscape).

      For EAM, you should see minimal changes from an upgrade standpoint whether you are using Centralized or Decentralized functionaltiy.

      Best of Luck
