    Hello Suresh,

    As of my knowledge MDM IViews have the advantage to ful fil your neeed to provide connectivity moreover,that they are not complex in structure and are therefore not restricted by any underlying schema structure. As opposed to regular iViews in other systems which are embedded into the pages on which they appear, MDM iViews are more generic and granular in nature enabling their placement on a page to be more adaptable.

    The SAP Enterprise Portal (SAP EP) offers templates for creating the iViews. The following are some examples of these templates available at the link:



    1. Create a new page using the page wizard.

    2. To see the iViews you created on the new page, you need to link them to the page. Right-click each of the iViews that you created and from the context menu, select Add iView to Page → Delta Link

    3. Double-click the new page you created and select:

    Page Content to view a list of the iViews that have been linked to this page

    Page Layout to view the layout currently assigned to this page. The iViews can be rearranged using the drag&drop function.

    4. The visual structure of a page can be changed with the Page Layout function. Select Define Layout to reset the layout of the page.

    5. Select Preview to view the page showing how the iViews have been arranged. The preview simulates what an end user sees at runtime.

    Hope you will find it helpful.
