BADI for managing "Allow Shadowing " in Shopping carts without using the access key to modify the component configurator /SAPSRM/POWL_CONFIG_SC of the webdynpro component POWL_UI_COMP


For the error in the POWL , " Query Shopping carts is already opened in another session",

SAP has provided Conf data specific configurator 'Allow Shadowing" to allow the same query to be opened in more than one session.

This change needs to be done in the component configurator /SAPSRM/POWL_CONFIG_SC of the webdynpro component POWL_UI_COMP.

But when trying to do the changes as above it is prompting for the access key for the object R3TR WDCC /SAPSRM/POWL_CONFIG_SC to enter as it is a standard component.But we dont want to modify the standard component.

Is there any other alternative(BADI'S or SAP NOTE) to remove the error without modifying the standard webdynpro component.

Please help me out in resolving the above error without using the acess key in modifying the standard component.

Many Thanks.

Kind Regards,

Sindhu Ravuri

    Hi Sindhu,

    the problem with the error "Query Shopping carts is already opened in another session" is a never ending story ...

    I had a long, long discussion and multiple OSS messages with the SAP support to correct this problem without activating the "Allow Shadowing" parameter.

    The real drawback of activating this parameter is that the POWL links for Define new query and Personalize are both inactive where these links are clickable in the system when shadowing is not active. This is SAP standard and described in OSS note 1692542 - POWL Links Define new query and personalize are disabled.

    After months of corrections and searching for the real cause of the error but without eleminating the error we decided to create an enhancement in the FORM 'Flush_package'. This coding is three statements long and ignores the lock entry if the locked object is 'EPOWL_QUERY_EDIT'.

    Since this time we have no longer this stupid message and can use all links on POWL.

    Best regards
