SAP GUI 7.4 Folder Naming Conventions

Hi All,

I'm configuring SAP GUI 7.4, I've done this by pulling entries from a server via the registry, there are also local entries that are being pulled from the usual Roaming\AppData\SAP\Common.. folder.

I want all of these entries to be listed under the connections folder when the GUI is launched, currently only the local entries are listed and a sub folder has been generated for the server entries.

Is anyone aware of how I can get the pulled server entries to appear under the connections folder?

Below are screenshots of my issue, any help would be appreciated!

Local entries within connections folder:

Server entries within generated subfolder (named Local by default):

Thanks!

    Hi Joe

    You can change the SAPLOGON.INI file location path from local to server path. so that you will get the all SAP system connections,

      Hi,

      Thanks for the response!

      But my issue isn't that I am missing connections, I've pulled connections both locally and from a server, I'm just trying to get them to appear along side each other, rather than how they are being displayed currently where a sub folder is being generated containing the server connections

      Regards

    Hi Joe,

    You can set environment variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE to point the SAPLogon.ini

    for windows: SAPLOGON_INI_FILE=C:\windows\SAPLogon.ini

    and copy saplogon.ini file to c:\windows

      Hi Srinivasan,

      By doing this the entries being pull from the sever will become locally stored and editable. This isn't what I'm trying to achieve.

      I want users to have a standard desktop build GUI, containing uneditable connections being pulled from the SAPUILandscape.xml on a server, as well as this I need users to be able to add their own entries, which will be stored locally.

      I want the server connections and the local connections to appear in the same folder, so the majority will be greyed out and uneditable, but the connections the user added themselves will be editable and not greyed out.

      I'm unsure how to delete the folder that the server connections are currently being stored in (the option isn't available by right clicking) and get the server/local connections to appear along side each other.

      Thanks for the reply!

      Regards,

    Hi All


    I've identified the issue, is anyone aware if its possible to disable the workspace view that gets created in the UILandScape.xml config file?
