What is code inspector ? Working with code inspector in SAP ABAP - T-Code SCI

Code Inspector: It is a SAP tool, which is used to check, it will help developers to maintain SAP programming standards and helps in following SAP programming guidelines.

It helps developers to adhere to programming standards and guidelines by creating messages on less-than-optimal coding. The Code Inspector offers various possibilities to define object sets and to combine multiple single checks in so-called "check variants". These functions, and the tool's parallel processing framework, make the Code Inspector a flexible and effective development assistant. The Code Inspector can be used in various scenarios with different types of checks, thus providing insights into the code quality from various angles.

Single object checks from the Development Workbench

You can check a single object with the Code Inspector from the ABAP Editor (transaction SE38), the Function Builder (transaction SE37), the Class Builder (transaction SE24), or the ABAP Data Dictionary (transaction SE11). To do this, choose <object> > Check > Code Inspector from the menu, where <object> can be a program, function module, class, or table.

Checks on transport objects from the Transport Organizer

You can invoke the Code Inspector from within the Transport Organizer (transaction SE09) to check objects in a transport request. To do this, choose Request/Task > Complete Check > Objects (Syntax Check).

Checks on sets of objects from transaction SCI

The Code Inspector (transaction SCI) itself enables you to create a wide range of object sets using standard selections via package, software and application component, source system, transport layer, responsible, object type, object name and so on.


Syntax check; extended program check


Analysis of WHERE clauses for SELECT, UPDATE and DELETE; SELECT statements that bypass the table buffer; Low performance operations on internal tables ; table attributes check
