How to stop WEBGUI starting a new session?



We are upgrading to ECC6, Enhancement Pack 6.

On our upgraded portal (currently being tested), a brand new WebGUI session seems to be started every time we click on the 'Display Vendors' tab.

(This tab links to a backend ERP transaction).

I believe that a new WebGUI session is started because :

  • you see a new 'SAP GUI for HTML' splash screen every time you click on the tab
  • all previously entered data in the SAP GUI session (eg the vendor number) has disappeared.

In contrast, in our current (Production) portal, you only get a splash screen the first time you start the 'Display Vendors' transaction.

Each time you return to the tab, the Vendor number remains in place.

We would prefer to maintain the same WebGUI session, so that entered data is not lost. How/where do you control this?

Note: I'm a newbie at ITS WebGUI configuration. So it may well be something obvious!

We tried changing the SICF parameters, but they don't seem to make a difference to this behaviour.
