ABAP WebDynpro Task should open in a new window from the UWL

For our approval workflow we're using the UWL (netweaver 7.4). To show some details of a related purchase order we've developed a webdynpro application. This application should open in a new window. We have a link in the UWL, the link works but not in a separate window, it always opens "inframe.

What do we need to change to get this issue solved?

Kind regards

    Hi Hubert,

    First identify the task id and the xml file getting used by enabling the support information as below

    1532883 - How to Enable the Support Information to Troubleshoot issues in UWL [VIDEO]

    Then in the item type definition you will have default action,in that action definition change the launch in new window property

    When using an UWL action, you have to check the value set for launchInNewWindow, as the value of this property defines the Navigation Mode to be used in the portal navigation. The possible values are:

    ="yes" (navMode 1 )
    ="no" (navMode 0 )
    ="SHOW_EXTERNAL" (navMode 1 )
    ="SHOW_EXTERNAL_PORTAL" (navMode 2 )
    ="SHOW_HEADERLESS_PORTAL" (navMode 3 )

    You can refer the KBA for 2054208 - Navigation Mode Information in EP
