This is a funny Note

Good morning Slackers Cool People in the Coffee Corner,

I just came across a funny OSS Note.

Why do I find it funny ? As a technician, it's always nice to know little secrets for working with SAP's products,

little gems of information, short cuts and tips and tricks, and this OSS Note describes the steps to find some

information on Fiori, and the funny thing is, the steps involved take unintuitive to a new level.

Just when you thought things couldn't get any more unintuitive, then this little gem comes along.

Nice one.

Best regards,

Andy.

p.s. please respect the OSS and do not quote the contents of the OSS Note here

    Woah, Andy. Thanks for this almost poetic bit (and I'm afraid there's no averting me from quoting this OSS note now and then). This is almost as awesome as the Tao of Programming or Windows Haikus. Incidentally, speaking of Haikus, *ahem*:

    What version Are you?

    You will get to understand.

    When the flower spins.

    Can somebody hack a new Version of the Note and paste my Haiku in?

    Cheers, Lukas

    Hi,

    I don't find it un-intuitive. The reason is that the same shortcut works for web dynpro. So I assume that somebody from SAP said let's be consistent this time.

    Cheers

    • Hi Martin,

      you're right everything has many perspectives and from the perspective of people already familiar with the short cut, then it demonstrates consistency by following the same pattern.

      Thanks for sharing that it is an existing short cut, I'll give it a try else where.

      Best regards,

      Andy.

    I remember when I found 350251 gem back in 2007, I didn't feel alone with the guys frustrations. It reads like a work log. Loved it.

    I love how it's "p" and not even "v" for version. 😀

    Andy,

    As a BASIS guy, I'm sure you'd appreciate the advice offered in the following notes....

    See note 1668154 version 3. Of course, the original author may have been having a particularly bad day (see 1689771 version 1). But curiously, the current version of 1687058 hasn't been altered to follow suit.

    Of course, SAP being SAP, the solution is configurable; the "point of contact" is left to the implementer to determine...

    • Hi Martin,

      I tried yesterday, and again this morning, when I try to open Version 3 of the first Note I get this error:  W:/SNO/CORE_ERROR_MSG:346 0003 0008


      But, I was able to get Version 1 of this one


          

      1689771 - SCC1 : incorrect status.

      and love the solution, you know what, in this business, a bit of divine intervention never hurts.

      Andy.
