IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT regarding issue in SAP Business One 9.2 PL04 onwards for HANA

Issue description

Starting the coresuite onPremise addon on SAP Business One 9.1 PL09 for HANA either complete fails or working with the addon correctly becomes impossible.

This is caused by the issue outlined in SAP Note 2228417 - Not able to modify UDTs having name (OUTB.TableName) longer than 16 characters.


  1. error messages when starting the coresuite addon:
    • "-1116 Unable to end SQL transaction"
    • "Error occurred: Internal error (1) occurred [Message 131-­183]"
    • "Data in Table COR_COR_MODULESUSER not added:"
    • "General error;359 string is too long: Length of input string(23) is longer than defined(20)"
  2. error messages such as "right truncation -1116"
  3. not possible to create new Object via coresuite customize
  4. issue with coresuite designer printing permisssions (related to issue with HANA rev rather than SAP Business One Patchlevel itself)
  5. Licence file cannot be read -> no error message pop-up when manually importing; "-1116 Unable to end SQL transaction" error message when trying to update the licencefile automatically 

The above is a list ofsymptoms we are currently we aware of, but this SAP bug can present itself in many other scenarios.
