How to Modernize?

Modernization can be done while creating a Business Function for a Project.
After giving an appropriate Name and Description to a Business Function, a popup appears where the users are given an option to build a new Business Function from Scratch or by Modernizing from SAP ABAP Program.

The ABAP modernizer opens up in a New Tab. On the left, the list of SAP objects with their T-codes and Reports that are yet to be modernized are displayed. On the right, the EdgeReady Cloud objects after modernization are displayed.

UPLOAD

Click the Upload option on the left to upload the Main program, Includes, and Data Dictionary.

The users can select any of the SAP Objects to upload in the EdgeReady Cloud.

The user can also upload the object’s code to map into the EdgeReady platform. Uploading object’s code follows three stages:

  1. Main Program - Selecting the main program that needs to be uploaded
  2. Includes - Uploading the Includes
  3. Data Dictionary - They are the table files present in the DB
