Customize NWBC Links

Hello everyone!

Customer is requesting a customized NWBC screen. He wants us to remove unused links for specific users, some will see them others don´t.

I was able to find some content related to the object CA_POWL and Launch Pads but I wasn´t able to do the trick. Can please someone tell me the best way to customize this screen and how?

Best Regards,

SAP Legend

    Thanks Collen and Alessandro,

    All this information is giving me a much better understanding about what´s going on. Additionaly I´ve found the note 1635932 - How to create a Launchpad and associate to a new role

    Looks like an easier way to achieve my objectives. I not able to complete step 2.

    1 Create a new launchpad in transaction LPD_CUST with menu items that you want.

    2 Create a new configuration of the application GRFN_SERVICE_MAP or you can copy configuration id GRAC_FPM_AC_LPD_HOME and customize it further.

    3 In the new configuration select the launchpad that you want to associate.

    4 Now create a new role and add webdynpro application GRFN_SERVICE_MAP to it with custom configuration id that you created in step 2

    Someone knows how can I create the configuration copy?

    The document attached on note differs a little from what happens for me. Instead of opening the page:

    It opens directly the page:

    I´m working with GRC AC 10.1.

    Hello all,

    Sorry for the delay. I tried to configure but could not completely adjust the screen. Please check more details bellow:

    I´m trying to add the link bellow:

    This is the user actual screen:

    I found the entrie for Approver Delegation in SM34:

    I´ve added it to the User Role, adding ACTVT 16 and REPID as displayed on the print but it doesn´t appears. Am I missing something?

    there are many ways which could help you to change this:

    - limit access for users in PFCG roles, if you limit access to reports, they will not be visible for users on their launchpads,

    - use LPD_CUST and hide the links permanently for all users

    - create new launchpads

    - assign new authorization objects to the links (via SM34)

    The easiest way for unused links is to remove them in LPD_CUST. Please let me know if it works for you.

    Regards, Andrzej

    Hi Legend

    There are a some documents in this space showing you how you can build your own launchpad if you want to go down that path

    I think there is another object to look - GRAC_REP (or similar name) which can allow you to show/hide the links in the launchpad in NWBC.

    Just a note - hiding something in the launchpad will not necessarily prevent the user from launching it (i.e. if they know the URL or bookmark a link they can still get to it if they have underlying authorisations)

    To make the approver delegation available, you only need GRAC_REQ with actvt 02. If you include 01 the user will also be able to create requests which off course should not be the case for "approvers".

    And vice versa, approver delegation (actvt 02) should/ need not be available for those who create requests (key users).
