ABAP - program versions after S/4 upgrade

Hi SAP,

we are in the process of preparing for S/4 HANA upgrade (on premise).
Per SAP guidelines we are following CCLM process and decommissioning obsolete code from our landscape.

A question has arisen we regard to deleting custom programs:
Currently, in our ECC landscape, if we delete a program completely from DV/QA/PD systems, the old versions of the program still exist (archived in some way) and if for some reason we need to bring back a program, we can pull one of the old versions in DV and move it back to QA and PD via a transport. (UN-delete it in essence)
We can still see versions of the program right back to the beginning of our system (20+ years), across multiple upgrades over the years.

As S/4 is a whole new approach, can SAP please confirm that once we go to S/4 that older versions of custom programs (pre-S/4) will still be available in version management?
This is a simple question but is important to clarify, as we are removing as much "obsolete" code as possible, but it could be the case that some programs are still needed - we would like to know that we have a way to bring them back (as we do today)

thanks,

From CCLM point of view, when you decide to delete an object in a decommissioning cockpit project, there is a phase called Backed Up where you can create a backup transport request via button “Back Up” to record the object.

Please refer to CCLM how-to Guide starting from page 54(Generic approach to decommission custom code)for more details.

Hi SAP Support Ex - thanks for your comment.

I'm aware of the "Back Up" option in CCLM. This issue is that many programs have potentially been deleted without using this option.

My question is: once we go to S/4 HANA, will we still be able to retrieve program versions from our current ECC landscape using the usual version management options?

We can do this today in ECC, retrieving program versions from previous ECC versions - I just want to confirm if this is still possible or not in S/4.

thanks,

David
