ABAP – UUIDs and random strings

If you want to generate a random string in ABAP, you can use the following FM where you can specify the length of the generated random string: CRR_GET_RANDOM_STRING

If you want a random and unique string, then you need to use the UUID generation class cl_system_uuid which can be accessed in either instance or static form. See the API for the UUID generation document attached to SAP Note 935047 – Creating and using GUIDs (UUIDs) or click on the download below.
