How are SAPScripts dealt with in S/4HANA? (Output Management)

Hello there,

I understand that in SAP Note 2228611 - Output Management in SAP S/4HANA, that it states SAPScript is supported, however, some of my colleagues tell me that it is not supported in all all cases.

I am trying to understand if we need to replace SAPScript before moving to S/4HANA.

In what situations (if any) is it not supported?

    Wouldn't the statement of the manufacturer of the software be more reliable?

    Beside of this SAP note there is also a statement in the simplification list:

    In Purchase order processing it is recommended to use Adobe Forms but due to compatibility the form technologies known from Business Suite (like SmartForms, SapScript) are supported as well.

    I understand what you are saying - however the details are somewhat "fuzzy" - the SAP Note and Simplification List are still high level.

    Further investigations are being done on our side around Output Management, Fiori and SAPScript.

    This was also found in the simplification list:

    From SAP S/4HANA OP 1511 on the new correspondence framework is the only possible

    way to manage incoming and outgoing correspondence. The support of SAPScript ceases

    with the new correspondence framework.

    Hello Laura,

    SAPscript and Fiori have no correlation whatsoever. When it comes to rendering of form templates, it’s an application specific decision which form technology is supported in the particular application. For the vast majority of the applications SAPscript should still be possible, unless there is a specific simplification item stating it’s not supported anymore.

    SAP overall recommends to move to Adobe Forms but it’s a case by case decision by the customer if this makes sense.

    Best regards,
