(SM) support tip: Revision handling during Custom Application Upgrade

What's going to happen if we have a revision of a dbdict and a new revision should be created during Custom Application Upgrade?"



Let's assume that we have the following revision records for the "Example" dbdict: Examplerevision1Examplerevision2Examplerevision3.

We've also set the "Max # of revisions" for our dbdict to "3". (Go to "System Navigator" > "Tailoring" > "Database Manager", for "Table" choose "Object" and click "Search", for "File name:" type the name of the table that you're willing to configure, under the "Revision" tab you can find the "Max # of revisions" field)

In our case "Examplerevision1" is the oldest from all existing "Example" revisions.

When a new revision ("Examplerevision4") for our "Example" dbdict is added the oldest existing "Examplerevision1" record will be removed and we'll have the following revision records: Examplerevision2Examplerevision3Examplerevision4.

Please note that OOB if the "Max # of revisions" for a given dbdict is not set then the maximum number if revisions is unlimited.
