Error:Define New Query Personalize

Hi Experts,

I am facing a very peculiar issue in travel expense powl object. I am getting an error saying “Define New Query Personalize”.

This error which is coming is in text format so we can’t even right click and remove the error.

I tried to check the entire scenario for removing the error. I tried to change the powl configuration for the Webdynpro component POWL_UI_COMP

The configuration name for the travel expense component configuration is FITV_POWL_TRAVELLER. In this configuration first I clicked on change--> Webdynpro built-in --> Master content -->Query toolbar --> Right_Hand --> which shows us (define_query & personalize).

For both the elements I checked the configuration. The visibility is invisible.

I even checked the authorization object CA_POWL and its roles for the user.

The value for the authorization Field POWL_APPID is *.

The value for the authorization Field POWL_QUERY is *, so user has access to create, change, delete the query.

The value for the authorization Field POWL_RA_AL is X, so X denotes it as allowed.

The value for the authorization Field POWL_TABLE is X, so X denotes it as allowed.

This error is coming because whenever we execute the powl object from portal it creates a query for the user automatically. It gets cached on its own. Every time we click the object the queries get refreshed with new one. This can be seen in the program POWL_D01.

I tried it for my id also. I tried to delete the queries for the travel expense. But as soon as I clicked on the powl object it got created on its own.

But for this user the queries are not getting created and due to this reason the user is getting the error.

We even tried to create an entry for the user in the transaction POWL_QUERYU. But it didn’t work.

The feeder class is also not called. This error is coming before calling of feeder class.

I don’t know how to generate the queries for the user.  Please help me on this.


I have attached the screen shot of error.

    Hi Avichal,

    from the technical depth of your analysis I assume you already searched for SAP-Notes.

    But for this user the queries are not getting created and due to this reason the user is getting the error.

    Are there any differences in terms of authorizations between the user who has the described problem and another one (for example, your own) who does not? Especially concerning the Auth-Object CA_POWL, because, one thing I'm missing in your description of the CA_POWL is the field POWL_CAT. What value does the field POWL_CAT have? I'd assume it to be "*", since you have set "*" for POWL_QUERY as well.

    Cheers, Lukas

    • Hello Lukas,

      POWL_CAT has a value '*'.

      I didn't get any notes for this error. There were notes related to SRM but their version was not matching with my system and i couldn't find any specific notes for it.

      If you know some notes then you can reply me and i am trying to search out solution, if i get solution i will share it with you.
