2456717 - Can not create a report about an extension file - SAP PD


  • The following types of report can be created:
         - a model report – provides information about all or some of the objects in a model,
         - a multi-model report – provides information about one or more models,
         - a list report – provides information about a single type of object.
  • The report or reverse engineering of model extensions in a human readable manner is required to document all customizations implemented by the extensions.
  • Extension reports will serve to identify which elements in an extension are not being used and assist in planning future developments.
  • Documenting the extension purpose and having a clearer indication of the scope will assist in identifying if a particular extension already exists and how it should be implemented in a model.
  • It should be possible to add:
         - graphics describing the relationships between the metaclass (parent) and stereotypes, attributes, collections, forms, etc.
         - the script associated to custom checks, methods, event handlers
    defined in an Extended Model Definition (XEM).
