We present the approximate solution of the Dirac equation with generalized Rotating Deng-Fan potential under spin and pseudospin symmetry limits using a parametric generalized NIkiforov–Uvarov method to obtain the energy eigenvalue and the corresponding eigen functions in closed form. We also discussed the special cases of this potential which is consistent with those found in other literatures.
