Problem with services for object links in PPM

I am not able to properly customize the settings that decide how to open object links in PPM. (Services)
I have this issue both for object links in Portfolio Management and Project Management. I set up the services I want to open different object links in, but
these options do not appear when I click the Open Application link in Portfolios or Projects.

I have done this in customizing activities
SAP Portfolio and Project Management --> Portfolio Management --> Base System Interfaces --> Define Object Link Types --> Service for an Object Type
and
SAP Portfolio and Project Management --> Project Management --> Connection to External systems --> Make Settings for the Linked SAP Objects --> Service for an Object Type
I am only using the standard Services defined in
SAP Portfolio and Project Management --> Project Management --> Connection to External systems --> Make Settings for Callin an SAP Transaction

I have this problem for all the object link types that are relevant for us. (DMS, Materials etc.)

Is there other customizing I am missing out that is required to make these services appear when we click to open the links?

    Dear Stian,

    You can set a breakpoint at the following coding part to check, if the assigned services are loaded when clicking on "open" for an objectlink in a project:

    DPR_OBJLINKS
    VI_OBL_OPEN_APPL
    WDDOINIT

    * set lines in popup to show URL links
    ** show min. 5 lines, max 10 lines
    CALL METHOD wd_comp_controller->mr_objlinks->get_application_url
    EXPORTING
    iv_guid = wd_comp_controller->mv_obl_guid
    IMPORTING
    et_appl_url = lt_appl_url.

    Table lt_appl_url should be filled with the assigned services from customizing.

    Best regards,

    Judith

    We need to maintain Web Server Alias for each service.

    Once the web server address is mainatin, we need to maintain Parameters against the Web server i.e. webdynpro service name

    WDA_RCP_OIF, WDA_MAT_OIF, etc.
