Own templates to create CDS in ADT


we would like to introduce some own annotations in our CDS's in ABAP. We want to include these in de proposed templates when creating a CDS.

Is there a way to adjust the existing templates so that they ara available to all users of the ADT? We are working with Neon.

Thanks for helping.

    Hi Kris,

    I assume that you want to add annotations which are provided by SAP (which are proposed in the ADT code completion). I mention this because creating/defining your own annotations is definitely not supported. Adding annotations not provided by SAP might cause problems in the future. Just think of name clashes.

    You can find information how to modify/create ABAP CDS templates in the ABAP CORE DATA SERVICES TOOLS FAQs ( ). General information about creating templates in ADT can be found here: .

    Kind regards
