OPA has been updated with a new version including the following bug fixes and library upgrades:
  • SFTP: Added support for on-premise SFTP.
  • SAP: Removed the metadata cache for IDoc types. All required data is now retrieved on-demand from the SAP server. This change saves agent memory and improves operational consistency.
