How to configure & execute the ABAP Test Cockpit (ATC)?

To perform a successful custom code extraction for your S/4HANA Conversion, the ATC Run results from the Central Check System must be provided. An initial Run should be executed before using the Panaya Custom Code extraction program.

Good to know!
The ATC Run results can also be achieved using a remote ATC check with SAP Fiori App Custom Code Migration in SAP Cloud
