Chrome extension/Firerfox user script to highlight ABAP correction instructions in SAP Notes
For a long time now I have been asking myself why the ABAP correction instructions in SAP Notes are presented in the way they are, pure black and white text.
Sure, there are other ways to access the correction instructions that make it easier to view and understand the changes, but wouldn’t it be nice if we could review the code changes directly in the note text in SMP?
Well, with this in mind I have taken some time to develop a chrome extension to enhance the presentation of ABAP CIs, and this is the result:
The extension can be installed from:
- Chrome (and compatible browsers) – the chrome web store: SAP Note Enhancer – Chrome Web Store
- Firefox – manually by following this instruction
The code is open source and it can be accessed in GitHub: dellagustin/SAP_Note_Enhancer · GitHub
I hope you find this helpful.
If you find bugs, missing keywords or have suggestions for features, please create an issue in the GitHub page.
UPDATE (March 2016)
With versions 1.10.0 I enabled the highlighting in ONE Support Launchpad.
Example: CI from note 2260344 (Select a release and then click in Code Changes).
UPDATE (March 2017)
Now also available for Firefox: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/sap-note-enhancer/ (It does not work anymore, see the next update)
UPDATE (March 2021)
The Firefox version was removed from the Add-ons website, but it is now self hosted, you can install it following this instructions: https://github.com/dellagustin/SAP_Note_Enhancer/tree/master#install
