My Timesheet doesnt launch UI5 application HR Renewal 2.0


We have recently upgraded our to system to EHP7 and now implementing HR Renewal 2.0 FP2 after HR Renewal 1.0 FP4.

I have activated all the services relevant to HR Renewal 2.0, I can see all relevant lanes as well in ESS/MSS page.

But initially when I tried clicking Record times in My Timesheet lane, nothing was getting launched. Then I traced the error logs and found below error:

As mentioned above I changed application alias to "CATS_RECORDING_UI5" in LPD_CUST for role ESS and instance MENU.

Now when I click on Record Times in My Timesheet Lane, webdynpro application gets launched for Record Working Time that too overriding entire landing page although I guess UI5 screen should be launched for Record Working Time.

Please suggest if I am missing something to get UI5 screen for Record Working Time.

Thanks and Regards,

Benita Pereira.

    Hi Benita,

    I realize this is an old thread and it may not be an issue for you any longer, but I came across this thread and had a colleague with the same issue so I figured I would answer it for the community.

    My guess is that you updated the application alias within the existing entry that was already in LPD_CUST within ESS MENU. This is still pointing to a WDA application HRESS_A_CATS_1

    In order to get this to work you need to create a new entry for the UI5 version.

    Then when you click on the Record Times within the My Timesheet icon

    The system will launch the UI5 version

    Please note that the Print button is still referencing a WebDynpro ABAP application HRESS_A_CATS_PRINT with configuration HRESS_AC_CATS_PRINT.

    Per the SAP help for the My Timesheet application

    • Employee can launch SAP UI5 Record Working Time application.
    • Employee can launch Web Dynpro ABAP Print application to print the timesheet.

    One last thing that I will point out for others is a recent note  2222248 - My Timesheet UI5 Tile: URL is hardcoded to use role as 'ESS' and instance as 'Menu'
