How to get all the Important Transaction Code for ABAP Development, Testing and Workflow Development?

Introduction

After working with SAP for more than 15 years and travelling across the Globe for SAP Projects one issue I always use to have how can I keep track of all the SAP Transaction Codes associated with ABAP Development . If you are working as a SAP ABAP Consultant you need to keep the name of Transaction Codes in your Fingertips. Sometimes this you know from other Experts and sometimes you have to dig it out. After exploring I found a very easy way to dig out the SAP Transaction Codes associated with ABAP. Just check this blog and conquer the SAP world.

 

Solution

Just Type S001 in Command Bar. This has all the important Transaction Code for ABAP Development,

 

Just Type SDW0 in Command Bar. This has all the important Transaction Code for ABAP Development with some more features,

Just Type SWLD in Command Bar. This has all the important Transaction Code for SAP WORKFLOW DEVELOPMENT.

Just Type STUN in Command Bar. This has all the important Transaction Code for SAP PERFORMANCE MONITORING.

 

Just Type COD_INT_MENU in Command Bar. This has all the important Transaction Code for SAP Cloud  MONITORING.

 

You can only add one Area Menu by Default. In Order to do so just type in SU3 Tcode and in Default Tab just choose the one you want.

 

Conclusion

This blog will help you in both SAP ECC and SAP S/4HANA.

    • Good question. You can’t because these are not the transaction codes, these are area menus. They can be called from the transaction code field but they are maintained in SE43, not SE93. The blog author should’ve explained what these are.

      At least some of these are included in the standard SAP menu, e.g. if you go to SAP Menu -> Tools -> ABAP Workbench then you’ll see the same thing.

      I suspect these are not even used much these days. Most people have their favorites (which you can upload and download) and there are role-based menus that would be more relevant. There is also Fiori for the users and Eclipse for developers.

      And I’d argue that the transactions on these area menus are not all “important”. These menus are based on functionality, not on importance. It’d be more productive if the author shared which transactions they use more and why.

      • This blog is intended for Users who are new and who are experienced. If you think you know everything and expect everyone to know it does not help. If we start explaining a Transaction code there will be somewhere someone has explained but then you will come back and say this is duplicate but you never realize by submitting similar blog you are having more users viewing it and the knowledge is spreading. Probably you need to Emapthize for the Audience and not think everyone knows at your level.

         

        All of this Transaction codes are still being used very much. Please remember if you are running Workflow IDOC the Tcodes are the same 

      • So if I can’t, it is very little use of them, I will not garbage my memory with another several tcodes if I can find all the same tools/tcodes in the SE93 by text search.

        The reason and the real intention why they were created (I guess) was a quick access to most used/useful codes. But, no favorites = no quick access. The idea is corrupted from the very beginning.

        • You cannot add this in favorites. Instead of remembering so many tcodes or carrying them in a file you can just remember one 4 letter word and you can get all the useful transaction codes in a structured fashion. It is up to you to define the usability of it.

          In se93 you will find all the tcodes which is part of the Area menu.

           

        • I suspect these transactions might actually predate Favorites feature and quite possibly have been around since before R/3. I can totally see those being used in a mainframe environment for simpler navigation. It’s just a guess though, I haven’t used SAP for that long, so can’t say for sure. 🙂

          • You can only add one Area Menu by Default. In Order to do so just type in SU3 Tcode and in Default Tab just choose the one you want. This might help you.

          • Sorry but this will not add an area menu. This will replace the user’s existing start menu. This field is frequently left blank and then a standard SAP menu is shown. This is a “before” and “after” picture of the change you’re suggesting. In the “before” picture, no start menu was specified and the standard SAP Easy Access menu was shown. After setting ME00 as Start menu, only the Purchasing menu is shown. Unfortunately, this now becomes “standard menu” and in this case it’s essentially impossible for the users to get the standard menu back. (Even after clicking on Standard Menu button, only the purchasing menu is shown.)

          • Thanks for your valuable input. You can add the other useful Transaction Codes in the Favorites and again this is intended for Business Folks and some other SAP Users.

            Again this solution are different options that SAP has provided to every user and let the User decide what is great for them.

             

            Thanks again for the wonderful analysis.
