Language of the Webservice connection from xCelsius to the backend system

Hi experts,

when the xCelsius Dashboard is integrated into an iView we have the following effect at the Webservice connection:

- The used user is the SAP Enterprise Portal user (this is correct)

- The language for the ERP log on is not the language of the Enterprise Portal. I guess it is the language of the operating system

When thinking about multi-language support, it is necessary to get the users language of the Enterprise Portal. How can this be done? Is there a way to get the language of the EP user? Or is there a work-around?

Thanks for your help.

    how xcelsius is deployed in portal? what sort of iview you are using for certain types of iviews, you can pass the logged on user attributes via the application parameter which will get passed to the called application as a url parameter.

    for example to get the portal logged on user id you can use

    userid=<User.LogonUid> as application parameter to get the language you can use

      Hi Raja,

      thanks for your fast answer and your help. Do you know a way to get the language of the logged on user using java-script or something else? Background: The xCelsius Dashboard is included into a HTML file.

      Thanks, Thomas
