What’s new in the 1911 release of SAP Sales and Service
Winter is coming, at least here above the equator, so it is time for a new SAP Cloud for Customer version. The 19.11 release will be the last release of the year. In the weekend of November 2nd, the test tenants are upgraded. 2 weeks later production will follow suit.
In today’s blog we will give you an overview of the highlights of the release.
Sunset of HTML5 for all users.
FIORI was already the default UI for the business users and now the key-users and administrators need to move as well. This means that “all” admin functionality is available only in the FIORI client. So it is officially time to say goodbye to HTML5.
SAP Cloud for Customer API Strategy for Standard A2X and OData APIs
As mentioned previously the standard synchronous SOAP (A2X) and C4C OData API v1 have been deprecated with August 2018 release of SAP Cloud for Customer. SAP recommends all customers:
to use C4C OData API v2 in their new implementations
to consider adapting C4C OData API v2 also in their existing implementations that are based on deprecated APIs, since such APIs will NOT be enhanced in the future
Advance End of Maintenance Announcements –SOAP, A2X, OData V1 Series
In conjunction with the release of the SAP Cloud for Customer OData API V2 series (c4codataapi), the currently available synchronous Web Services (a.k.a. SOAP, A2X) and the standard OData API V1 (a.k.a. c4codata) are to be deprecated.
As a courtesy to customers, the APIs which are to be deprecated, will continue to work and be supported until February 2020.
What’s new on Platform level
What we have seen since the last few releases is that more and more effort is being put in delivering a better user experience. Also in this release features have been enhanced. Below are some of the new and enhanced features

More will be added but in this release the following will be available:
