2909212 - Slow Performance when editing an ABSL script


While editing an ABSL script in the Cloud Application Studio, you notice that there is latency when typing.

Reproducing the Issue


  • You have a Custom BO or XBO in your Solution.
  • You have an Action or Event on a node for the BO or XBO.


This issue could be caused due to a huge number of lines of code in the script. To provide code-completion and appropriate error/warning messages, the code analyzer has to run for every edit (typing a single character) on the script.


Consider making the custom code more modular. Instead of having all code in a single script, move snippets of code to separate actions that can be called from the original script.
