Quality Checks for SAP Cloud Integration with WHINT Interface Documentation


WHINT Interface Documentation creates PDF documents of your Cloud Integration Content to automate the technical documentation and help you to search for used artifacts and elements inside SAP Cloud Integration Flows & OData Services.

Inspired by an open source contribution of Morten Wittbrock, the official SAP design guidelines and some of our own experiences, we have embedded the following checks into our documentation solution:
