Unable to launch UI5 Application from Portal UWL

Dear All,

Our requirement is as follows

  • We need to launch an UI5 application when the user clicks on UWL work item.

In order to achieve this functionality we have added our task in SWFVISU transaction with visualization type UI5_BSP and added below values under visualization parameters.

APPLICATION - <Application name>

When I try to open the work item from UWL , it launches standard SAP GUI instead of the custom UI5 application that we configured in SWFVISU.

I tried to check the XML configuration and I did not find the task that we configured in SWFVISU.

Even I tried to re-register the system in portal under

System administration -> Universal Worklist & Workflow -> Universal Worklist Administration

But unable to find the task in the web flow Item definition (XML configuration). Could you please direct some pointers to achieve this scenario.

Thank you,

    Hi Harsha

    You've mentioned that you've performed the re-registration of the connector, right? This should be enough, theoretically.

    Have you tried clearing the UWL cache after having performed the re-registration?

    Check SAP KBA 2141647 on how to clear the UWL cache.

    As you've made the configuration on SWFVISU, you should have the configuration reflected in a Low priority XML file. Have you checked on that file with Low priority?

    Let us know the updates.
