How to use the SAP Gateway Error Log in ADT
When you use ABAP Development Tools in Eclipse (ADT) for your development of OData services you may sooner or later run into an error that is written to the Error Log of the SAP Gateway Framework.
Since in SAP Cloud Platform, ABAP Environment you cannot use SAPGUI anymore you will have to use the feed reader plugin because you cannot run transaction /iwfnd/error_log.
Unfortunately you have to add (manually) the SAP Gateway Error Log to the feed reader of the ABAP Default perspective since by default only ABAP Dumps and system messages are added here.
Since I just ran into an error in a newly setup ADT where the SAP Gateway Error Log was not added yet it took me a while to find out the root cause of the error.
So I strongly recommend to add the feed reader for the SAP Gateway Error Log to all of your ABAP or ABAP cloud projects.
In the following find how to do this.
- Step 1 – Navigate to Feed Reader Tab
- Step 2- Add a feed query
- Add SAP Gateway Error Log
- Change the Refresh interval from 60 to 5 minutes
