Summary

abapGit exists in 2 flavours: standalone version or developer version.

Prerequisites

abapGit requires SAP BASIS version 702 or higher.

Install Standalone Version

  1. Download the ABAP code (right click -> save-as) to a file.
  2. Via SE38 or SE80, create a new report named ZABAPGIT_STANDALONE (formerly ZABAPGIT_FULL). Note: Do not use the name ZABAPGIT if you plan to install the developer version.
  3. In source code change mode, upload the code from the file using Utilities -> More Utilities -> Upload/Download -> Upload
  4. Activate

Typically, abapGit will only be used in the development system, so it can be installed in a local $ package (e.g. $ZABAPGIT).

Now you can use abapGit by executing the report in transaction SE38.

Install Developer Version

In order to contribute to the abapGit project, you install the developer version. First, logon to your SAP system in English (language EN) and install the standalone version (see above).

Prerequisite to using the online feature is that SSL must be setup. If your system is not connected to the Internet (e.g. behind a firewall) or doesn’t allow proper SSL configuration, then you can use the offline scenario (see below).

  1. Run the standalone version of abapGit
  2. On the repository overview page, select “New Online”
  3. Enter https://github.com/abapGit/abapGit/ for the URL
  4. Enter package name $ABAPGIT (or select an existing or create new package)
  5. Select “Clone Online Repo”
  6. Select “Pull”

Transaction ZABAPGIT is now available to run the developer version.
