Notice:  New Document Server & Authoring Tool

Bullet Summary

  • All SAP Support Documents have been copied to a new server.
  • The new server is part of a new documentation tool called uPerform.
  • All documents will be re-authored into new uPerform formats in 2018.
  • The new formats enable quick document production and multiple output types (simulations, procedure docs, etc.) from a single "recording".
  • The document library is easy to search as all documents are now indexed with meta-data.

Questions?  Contact Charlie Dudley.

New SAP Docment Library

uPerform Logo


Detailed Summary

EBS has procured a new documentation tool, uPerform, which also has a document library server.  Our existing library of documents has been copied on to the new server.  Over the next 9 -12 months the EBS team will be re-authoring all of our old library using the new tool.  The new server functions will also enable us to update documents on a regular basis by notifying the authors to review, revise, and/or delete old documentation. 

Documents are much easier to find now, as our documents are indexed on the new server using meta-data which include the t-codes as well as long-text names.  And when you search now, you are ONLY searching the SAP library not the entire City site.

Over the next year you will see documents transformed into not only traditional print documents, but simulations, courses, and other formats so that EBS support documents are multi-modal.  In addition, you will be able to access these documents directly from within the SAP GUI for desktop SAP users.

The links in the menu below will take you to the uPerform document server.  The original documents on the EBS site still exist, so if you are linking to a document on the SAP Learning Center, those links remain intact. 

Webmasters: Please update your links to the new uPerform server links.  We will retire the old SAP Learning Center links in January 2019.

(Bureaus / Divisions interested in exploring the use of the tool, contact Charlie Dudley in EBS.)
