How to begin your ABAP Test Cockpit migration for custom code?



  • Checked System with SAP_BASIS 7.00, 7.01, 7.02, 7.31, 7.40, 7.50, 7.51 or 7.52
  • Central Check System with SAP NetWeaver AS for ABAP 7.52 
  • RFC Destinations
    For remote access, the Central Check System requires an RFC destination for each relevant system that you wish to check using ATC. When executed, the Central Check System accesses the Checked System using Remote Stubs and the RFC connection. These Remote Stubs are an interface between the Central Check System and the Checked System will return a model from custom code that needs to be checked.
  • Before you proceed with the below instructions, install the latest version of these notes if they apply to your system landscape

Checked System Preparation

What is a Checked System?
A Checked System is a system from which you extract your custom code. This is the system for which the custom code will be analyzed by Panaya.

Configuring the User
The RFC user needs the following authorizations in the Checked System

Name of Authorization Object


Type of RFC Object

Name of RFC Object


16 (Execute)

Central Check System Preparation

What is a Central Check System?
As part of your conversion project, you will need to set up one centralized SAP NetWeaver AS ABAP 7.51 or 7.52 (SAP_BASIS only) system. This will be your ATC check system where you should run ATC with the latest checks, allowing you to check multiple systems in your landscape.
Important! The Central Check System cannot be configured on the SAP Cloud using SAP Cloud trial account.

Configure the User
The following user is required in order to use transaction ATC and perform custom code checks

User Role



Authorization for setting up ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC) for central quality checking

In addition, you need the following authorization objects

Name of the Authorization Object

Name of the Authorization Field

Value of the Authorization Field







Configure RFC Connections
Execute transaction SM59 to create RFC connections for the Central Check System.
The RFC Connection should be of type 3 - Connection to ABAP System - for each Checked System.
Use the user created in the previous step to connect to the Checked Systems.
