Direct Link to custom Tab

Dear C4C Support,

I have a requirement from my customer. I need to send a direct link via email to connect directly to a custom tab of Opportunities.

I could find how to make a direct link to a particular Opportunity, this is the way:¶m.Key=#ID# where #ID# is the technical ID of the opportunity.

Then, this link goes to first tab of the Opportunity, the problem is how to reach another tab via direct link?

I tried to find any link to it via SDK, via HTML5, Fiori and Silverlight..., I read the source code of the page using Chrome...

Is it possible to reach my target?

The tab is a custom created tab.

I have added the code of Adaptation Changes in the moment of creation of the tab, maybe, the key for my problem is there.


Kind regards,

    Hi Manuel,

    Could you try using SDK? Maybe, the answer to your question would be easier.

    Hi Manuel,

    By 'tabs', do you mean facets? If yes, then in UI Designer, they are called 'Views'.

    Each view has a 'Name' property, usually "NavigationItem*___". You can also change this to a more reader-friendly name.

    You could try creating a new inport on your TI which does exactly the same as your regular inport, but additionally additionally sets the data field "Root/UIState/ViewSwitchSelectedItem" as the name of the facet that you want to open by default. I haven't tried this, but guessing this will work.

    Further reading: Object Based Navigation (OBN) in the SAP Cloud Applications Studio documentation.

    • Dear Roman,

      Thanks so much for your answer, but this is not what I am looking for.

      We need a direct link (like a webpage) that takes us to the custom facet that I told before.

      In your purpose, your plan is to access by default to this facet all time, but we need the access to the facet just in few moments (I understood that this is a extrange requirement, but a requirement of our customer).

      I will read the document you provided in order to find new info.

      Kind regards,
