SMP SDK and SMP server compatibility with Work Manager 6.5

Dear All,

As we are in discussion phase of upgrading our landscape, I am gathering information from all perspective, so as to avoid any last minute surprises.

So here's another question on SMP SDK and SMP server.

Our current landscape is:

Application : Work Manager 6.4, Inventory Manager 4.3

SMP SDK : SMPSDK30015P_6-21011834

SMP Server : SMP 3.0.13.4

SAP : 1503

Now we are upgrading to : 1709 and Work Manager 6.5

My question is, do we need to upgrade the SMP SDK also ? Is this mandatory ?

OR

Suppose I upgrade the SDK to latest version which is SMP SDK SP16 PL18 , will it be compatible for Work Manager 6.5 and Inventory Manager 4.3 and with SMP server 3.0.13.4 ?

    My best suggestion here is to do the following technique - rule of thumb.

    Look at the download software area for Work Manager 6.5 then look at the time stamp (what date was it release?).

    Then compare this to the latest SMP 3.0 SDK software download area. Look at the dates on those releases.

    So let us say you have SAP Work Manager X released on November 2018. Then you have SMP 3.0 SDK version A, B, C. Released on November 2018, August 2018 and June 2018.

    The golden rule of thumb is that when Work Manager 6.5 was released on November the developers have access to the SMP 3.0 SDK in the software download center at least 1 quarter before the official release. So you can pretty much have a good estimate that the SMP 3.0 SDK release in August 2018 is the one they used.

    This suggestion is just in case the documentation for SAP Work Manager 6.5 is lacking on the release version of the SDK.

    Most likely there should be a link in the help.sap.com on SAP Work Manager 6.5 that may have expose this version that they used. We may have to Google "help.sap.com SAP Work Manger 6.5" find the link then the official document to find the version of the SDK used.

    I at least gave you a quick rule of thumb based on what I can see.

    Regards,

    Mark
