SAP PI - How to decode support package version and patch level update from Soft Comp version number


I am trying to find the SAP PI support package and current patch level update installed. I navigated to System information page (<host>:<port>/StartPage). In the components info tab, i can see many vendors items has been listed with corresponding version.

I saw an SAP NOTE 1381878 (How/where to check the patch levels of your XI/PI system) for the same, but that didn't mention on specifically which version in component info to check.

Question 1: How to find the installed PI support package and patch level from that list ?

Question 2: How to decode SP and patch level info from the version number. one example from component info tab: 1000.

    Hi Subin,

    regarding question 1: The java stack consists out of a lot of components. In general they should be on the same SP and Patchlevel. Only the build timestamps may differ, so it doesn't really matter which component you pick. What I usually do is picking the adapter framework component "SAP_XIAF".

    Regarding question 2: Your sample string can be read as follows. <do not care>.<release>.<service pack>.<patchlevel>.<build timestamp>

    So for your sample it would be:

    • Release 7.50
    • Service Pack (SP): 10
    • Patchlevel (PL): 0
    • Built at: 2017-10-29 29:39:00

    • Thanks Reffael.

      I checked component w.r.t SAP_XIAF... the corresponding version was 1000.

      As per your comment, Release 7.5, service pack is 10, built at 2017-10-29 23:39:00 and patch level is 0.

      But why the patch level is 0 ?

      It should be something like 000012 or 000018...
