SAP Support Package Stacks

A set of support packages and patches for a product version that are best implemented together

SAP recommends the application of support package stacks at least once a year so that all corrections can be implemented. To optimize quality, please note the minimum requirements and apply the support packages and patches specified in the stack together.

About Support Package Stacks

Support package stacks allow you to keep productive applications up to date on a regular basis with a minimal cost of ownership.

The introduction of minimum support package stack levels gives you more flexibility in planning your maintenance activities by reducing the range of possible combinations. Benefits include:

  • Enhanced quality of single support packages, since other components involved meet specific minimum requirements, and thus corrections are less complex and of a higher quality
  • SAP’s test activities focus more on the required combinations of support package stacks, improving the quality and compatibility of these combinations
  • Download pages tailored to stacks simplify downloading  the required support packages and patches
  • Application instructions created for support package stacks reduce the time and effort needed to apply corresponding support packages and patches.
  • Potential problems can be preempted or solved faster, and operating costs can ultimately be reduced.

Note that customers undergoing upgrade or implementation projects may need more than the minimum recommendations.

Product Versions

The product versions listed in the tables below are supported by support package stacks or will be supported soon. Each support package stack will be led by a certain component or support package track respectively. The corresponding support package is a key part of the stack. The release of the first support package stack marks the start of the new strategy for that particular product version.
