SAP Technology options

The SAP Technology editor contains various tabs. Each is explained below.


  • The options in this Technology editor are the default options that will be used to populate the same fields in Applications and Analysis Units. If you need to define specific options for a specific Application or Analysis Unit, then please use the Application editor (Analysis tab) or the Analysis Unit editor.
  • If you make a change to a specific option at Application or Analysis Unit level, and then subsequently change the same option via this editor, this setting will NOT be mirrored back to the Application or Analysis Unit - this is because specific settings at Application and Analysis Unit level have precedence if they have been changed from the default setting available in this editor.
  • The SAP/ABAP Reference Guide contains miscellaneous technical information about the SAP/ABAP analysis process.
Analysis tab

This tab is only visible at Application and Analysis Unit level.

SAP Tables folder - only available at Application level Defines the file location of your extracted SAP tables.
Include Paths This option allows you to define a folder that will be searched in order to resolve links with objects that are outside the scope of the current analysis, but are referenced from objects currently being analyzed. The code of any objects located in the Include Folder is not analyzed, however the object itself is recorded as being present in the Analysis Service. If the objects already exist in the Analysis Service, only a link to those objects will be created - in other words no duplicate objects are created.
Add a new Include Ptah - choose the folder using the standard Windows Browse for folder dialog box. When added the folder will be listed in the table:

A tick mark in the Recursive column indicates that all folders contained within the selected folder will be searched recursively. You can toggle this as required. By default, all new Include Paths are set to False.

Edit an existing Working Folder - he standard Windows Browse for folder dialog box will be displayed enabling you to amend the folder.
Re-order the list of Working Folders. This is important because the order in which the items appear in the list, is the order in which the analyzer will handle them.
Delete an existing Working Folder.
Only visible at Analysis Unit level

Use this button to reset the list to the entries defined by the CAST Delivery Manager Tool.
