Procedure documentationPerforming a Component Check  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


You use the component check to perform checks on objects of a selected software component version. These include consistency checks and checks for invalid characters, for example.



       1.      To call the component check, choose Tools Component Check in the Enterprise Services Builder menu.

A wizard starts.

       2.      Select the software component version from the input help.

       3.      Choose Continue.

       4.      Select the object set to be checked.

You have the following options:

       Check all objects of the selected software component version.

       Check objects of selected namespaces of the software component version.

       Check individual objects.

To select an option, use the dropdown menu for the Object Set field.

If you select the Individual Objects option, proceed as follows:

                            a.      First, add a new line in the table under Select Single Objects.

                            b.      In the Add Single Object dialog, select the object type (business object, for example).

                            c.      Select the object in the table.

                            d.      Choose Apply.

       5.      Choose Continue.

       6.      Select the checks you want to perform. To do so, select the corresponding checkboxes.

       7.      Choose Finish.

The result of the check is displayed as a table.

The following checks are available:

Available Checks



Identify open change lists for the software component version

Identifies open (not yet transported) change lists for the software component version.

Check objects for invalid characters

Checks whether language-specific texts contain characters that are not permitted for the specified language (for example, umlauts in English texts or unusual special characters).

Standard consistency check

Executes the Check Object function for all objects of the software component version.

Identify objects with invalid assignment


Identifies objects that have an invalid assignment as a result of a transport.


If objects of a folder are transported, but not the folder, these objects are displayed directly under the namespace in the target component. This is an invalid assignment.

Identify deleted objects

Identifies deleted objects.

Identify interface objects that cannot be used for the specified back end

Checks interface objects for restrictions regarding their usability in the back end.

More information: Usability of Interface Objects

Identify change lists that have not been transported

Identifies change lists that have not been transported.

Identify modified objects

Identifies modified objects.

More information: Modifying an Object

Check consistency of original language within a software component version

Checks whether all objects have the original language set for the software component version.

Since the original language of objects is set centrally for all objects of a software component version, all objects of a software component version have the same original language in the standard case. However, copying and transports can result in objects with a different original language in a software component version. The check finds these objects.

Check completeness of translations of an object

Checks whether there are texts in all available languages for the objects.

More information: Translating Texts

Identify objects outside the defined namespaces

Checks whether objects are in namespaces that are not defined for this software component version.

This situation can occur if, for example, a software component version is transported to a target system and some of the namespaces defined for this software component version are different to the namespaces defined for the software component version in the target system. The objects of the namespaces that are no longer available in the target system after the transport are not displayed in the navigation area, but can be found using the object search.

Identify empty namespaces

Identifies namespaces that do not contain any objects.


In the case of single object selection, you can only select checks that can be performed for the selected object type.

If you select the Perform Checks with Confirmation checkbox and have selected several checks, the system asks after each check whether you want to continue checking or cancel.
