How to use ADT Project Explorer and ABAP Repository Trees – Check out the new video of the ADT team

  • update 02.03.2021 – the names of the release states have changed and do now not contain anymore the term SAP

When working with the released objects in SAP Business Technology ABAP environment my  colleague Michael Gutfleisch showed me cool feature how to filter the entries in the ABAP repository tree by simply right clicking on the folder and selecting “Open Development Objects”.

There it is possible to add a search string like the following


that allows you conveniently to display all released objects (api:USE_IN_CLOUD_DEVELOPMENT) of a specific type (type:CLAS) and optionally with a pattern (XCO*) which returns 31 hits from more than 1500 released classes.

The complete documentation for the possible release states you can find here.


The ADT team now created a cool Video that explains all the new features.

      The "Expand folder by..." feature described in the video is very much appreciated, sadly it is available on HANA (tested with the 1909 Docker image) and not on AS ABAP (tested with the 7.52SP04 demo installation). Ditto for "derive new tree". It is mentioned at the very end of the video.
