ABAP on Eclipse - Temporary Packages Bug


I have a temporary package in my ABAP repository, let's say $MY_TEMP_PCK but I can't add it in eclipse in my Favorite Packages folder.

When I enter the package name in the popup window it does not find it.

I think this is a bug or am I missing something?

    Hello Sergio

    • Hello Pierre,

      If you did not solve this issue, I have discovered how to bypass the bug.

      1. Open any object that you have in your local package in Eclipse(Ctr + Shift + A)
      2. Right click in any place of your code or Alt + Shift + W
      3. Show in -> Project Explorer
      4. The Local package finally appears in the project Explorer Hierarchy
      5. Right Click in the local Package and add it to your favorites

      It worked for me

      • Ecplise Neon.3 Release (4.6.3)
      • ADT 2.73.2
      • SAP Netweaver 740 SP11
      • Kernerl Release 742

      Best Regards
