Launchpad GUI transactions error

Hello Experts,

I have a problem using T-codes in my Fiori launchpad.

I have implemented several IS-U transaction into my Launchpad from the technical catalog by simply copying the backend TC into Z-namespace and assigning it to the user role.

When I open the transaction from the launchpad I get an error such as


Website currently not available.

After calling the URL https://<server>:<port>/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui once, the error wont show again (cache?) and the transaction redirects me to the WebGUI login screen and displays the transaction in the launchpad (after entering my credentials again)

Also, client 100 is chosen by default, even though I call the transaction from a different client.

Is it possible to open the transaction directly without having to enter username and pwd every time? It works fine with my manually configured SE80 in the launchpad.

Where is the user, client and language parameter set when calling a transaction though target mapping in the launchpad designer?

Hope you can help,

    Those URL parameters may be added by the SM59 destination/alias that was specified in the setup of the tile. If it's a standard SAP tile for a transaction, check the Fiori Apps Library for the Alias, and check the destination that exists for that alias like <alias>_HTTPS or <alias>_HTTP... or if that doesn't exist, you would need to check the system alias map described in section 5.2.2 of the S/4HANA UI Technology guide for the correct SM59 destination to check. The Web Dispatcher can add client as well, but I believe it normally results in the client being set in a cookie.

    As far as the website not available error, other than what AbdulBasha mentioned above, are you using any type of load balancing? If you perform an HTTP trace while testing this, do you notice anything unusual about the response for the same URL as in the error?

    • Hello John,

      I think I figured out what caused the problem thanks to your answer.

      The system alias was linked to to local, thus calling local_https for the transaction. Enabling cookies did the trick to pass the current user.

      The issue with calling the transaction once is, that I called the Launchpad via the full domain website but called put the IP address in local_https. As the SSL is still not configured perfectly, this change in 'address' was blocked by the browser, which apparently made calling the webgui (or probabaly any other service under that address) necessary.

      Lesson learned: Be consistent with the url's you use within the system

      Thanks again,

    Hello Marvin,

    What kind of landscape it is ? If Central Hub, when accessing with second URL https://<server>:<port>/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui which server (Front end or backend), port is used to access the t-code directly via webgui.

    If you are accessing directly with backend server, port. Then the issue will be with the Webdispatcher, the paths /sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui, might be missing under relevant client in web dispatcher.

    You can set default client in System Profile Parameters or directly in USHELL, FLP Service configurations.
