Limit ABAP in S/4HANA on Premise to ABAP 4 Cloud?

Hello S/4HANA ABAP Experts,

a while ago Jeffrey D'Silva asked about ABAP 4 Cloud?. Unfortunately the answer from Andreas Huppert which linked to the Blog The Key User Extensibility Tools of S/4 HANA did not bring any additional insight for me. So I'm asking again:

The White Paper "SAP S/4HANA - Extensibility for Customers and Partners" mentions this:

“a lightweight ABAP version running under the working title “ABAP 4 Cloud.” It is available in SAP S/4HANA Cloud and in SAP S/4HANA on premise.“

I know that S/4HANA Cloud supports a restricted syntax of ABAP. Also S/4HANA Cloud restricts what API's can be used. But can I setup my S/4HANA on Premise in a way to restrict the available ABAP and API's? Perhaps Felix Wente can help.

Best regards

    Hi Gregor,

    yes this is possible since AS ABAP 7.51. In Eclipse you can choose on report/class level which ABAP version you want to use.

    After switching to restricted ABAP you will get syntax errors in yur program when using non whitelisted objects. Give it a try.
