Hidden Treasure: List of Released APIs in the ABAP Keyword Documentation
Did you know that the ABAP Keyword Documentation provides complete and up-to-date lists of repository objects that are classified as released API and can be used in restricted ABAP language versions? There is a list for each type of repository object, for example, CDS data definition or RAP behavior definition.
To access this list of released APIs, use the following link: Released APIs.
Here’s how it looks like:
The lists show all available released APIs for each object category. Object categories are, for example, ABAP class, DDIC domain, DDIC database table, and so on. The lists show the release contract under which an object is released. They also shows the ABAP language version in which the object can be accessed according to the rules of the release contract. The list is generated automatically, so it is complete and up-to-date. The column State indicates the release state of the API – either Released or Deprecated. If an API has been deprecated, the successor object is listed in the column Successor.
For more information about available ABAP language versions, release contracts, and released APIs, see the following topic: ABAP Language Versions, Release Contracts and Released APIs.
Kudos go to my colleague Horst Keller, who has implemented this.
