Object documentationClearing Tools



To optimize the clearing process, any clearing tool that you use should follow the SAP standard deletion process as provided in the ABAP workbench. That is, when a master object (for example an object of type PROG) is deleted, all dependent objects (for example includes or text elements) should be deleted automatically as well. This ensures that the deletion of objects really covers all relevant objects. Otherwise, dependent objects would remain in the system - even if they are no longer used.

To meet this requirement, SAP recommends that you use the ABAP workbench. If mass deletion is required, ensure that the mass deletion tool you use meets the requirement mentioned above.
