ABAP on Eclipse - Temporary Packages Bug

Nov 28, 2016 at 10:19 AM

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

I've facing the same problem nowadays. Did you discover any solution for it?

Best regards

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
