To debug an AMDP (ABAP Managed Database Procedure) from an ABAP system to a HANA system, you can follow these steps:
Activate Debugging in ABAP System:
Ensure that the debugging option is enabled in the ABAP system. You can check this by going to transaction code SU01 and selecting your user ID. In the "Parameters" tab, make sure that the "Debugging" checkbox is selected.
Set a Breakpoint in ABAP Code:
Open the ABAP code that calls the AMDP. This can be a program, function module, or method.
Identify the code section where the AMDP is called.
Set a breakpoint at the relevant line of code. You can do this by clicking on the left-hand side of the code editor or by using the shortcut key F8.
Execute the ABAP Code:
Execute the program or trigger the action that calls the AMDP.
The execution will stop at the breakpoint, and the debugger will open.
Switch to Debugging Mode in HANA System:
In the ABAP debugger, switch to the debugging mode for HANA calls. This can be done by clicking on the "HDB" button in the ABAP debugger toolbar. This will open a separate debugger for HANA debugging.
Navigate to the AMDP Code in HANA Debugger:
In the HANA debugger, navigate to the AMDP code that you want to debug. You can do this by using the call stack or by searching for the relevant AMDP method.
Double-click on the AMDP method to open the debugger for the HANA code.
Set Breakpoints and Debug HANA Code:
Set breakpoints at the desired lines of code in the HANA AMDP method.
Resume the execution of the program from the ABAP debugger. The execution will reach the AMDP method in the HANA debugger.
The debugger will stop at the breakpoints set in the HANA code, allowing you to step through the code, inspect variables, and analyze the execution flow.
Analyze and Debug HANA Code:
Use the debugging features available in the HANA debugger to step through the code, set watchpoints, inspect variables, and evaluate expressions.
You can also use the SQL console in the HANA debugger to execute SQL statements and view query results.
By following these steps, you can debug AMDP code directly in the HANA system while being triggered from an ABAP system. This allows you to analyze and troubleshoot the HANA-specific logic within the AMDP method and gain insights into the data processing and performance aspects.
