Will BO 4.2 Webi Report Work in BO 4.1?

Hi All,

We have environments like below:

DEV 4.2 and QA 4.1,

We developed universe and webi report in DEV and promoted those to QA.

Universe is working fine but webi report is not working showing error as "action cannot be

performed".

I have query, does 4.2 version webi report work in 4.1 version.

Can anyone help on this.

Thanks,

Vijay

    As mentioned, the simple answer is no.
    More complex answer "it depends".
    If the report was originally made in 4.1, then that 4.1 was upgraded to 4.2 , but report was never edited in 4.2 -- most likely when promoted into 4.1 it will still work.
    Any report created or edited and saved in 4.2 - will not work in 4.1

    • universes are different objects/components. If you didn't use any new features they might work or might not.
      In any case using content developed in 4.2 in lower versions will not be supported by SAP, so it should be avoided.
