Summary: CAST AIP 8.3.15 introduces a number of features and changes as listed below.

Technology updates


ABAP code previously causing syntax errors during an analysis is now supported. For a full list, see Technology coverage changes in CAST AIP 8.3.x.

  • is still specialized by technology and quality rule
  • is specialized for each method parameter

A list of libraries automatically taken in to account for Sanitzation is available in User Input Security - predefined methods.
