Custom Fiori like application Opening up in new tab without language Parameter

Customer is leveraging Fiori Launch pad for end users to login and perform job functions. Standard Fiori & Custom Fiori like applications configured into launch pad. End users provisioned with an ability to login to Launchpad with their choice of language for example EN, ZH, DE.

We come across below issue and like to get some thoughts around this subject.

  • Custom Fiori like applications configured on the Launchpad opening up in new window tab without language parameter(sap-language=EN/ZH/DE). In detail, When end user login to Launchpad with language as DE and click on the custom Fiori tile, it opens up in new browser window without login language parameter as a query parameter(sap-language=DE).In this case, UI5 application is loading in EN since EN is default locale instead of DE(Login language).


Changed LPD_CUST configuration to load UI5 application with Component.js instead of index.html and tile is opening up within same window and login language is taken into account.

Challenge is to open up UI5 application in new window with login language from the launch pad. Appreciate any inputs.

    Hi Anil,

    What is a prefered way for opening an app from end user point of view?

    My understanding is that end users prefer opening an app in same window because of "simple and easy".

      Hi Masa,

      When the application launched directly, Application is able to read the browser language.

      Our situation is that we provided ability for the end user to choose their choice of language at the portal level and browser language may/may not be same with their portal language choice.

      In addition, End users expected to share computers at the front office and changing a browse language is not an option.

      Thanks,

      Anil

    Hi Anil,

    Can you try by removing the language in the ushell service. leave it blank and try again.

    Hope this helps,

    JC

    Hi JC,

    Thank you. I did check the language setting under USHELL SICF service and confirm that it was set to blank.

    Any other thoughts you can think of to pass language parameter from launchpad framework to UI5 applications opening up in new window.

    Thanks,

    Anil
