Fiori Launchpad Does not consider SU01 default Language

Hi,

Based on the help.sap.com article the FLP default language is supposed to be picked in the following order:

1. Language in URL

2. Default Language Maintained in SU01

3. Default Browser Language.

Setting Language Preferences for the Launchpad

I am trying to setup the system for the type 2 from the list above.

Reason: In production systems when SSO is used to log into FLP the users do not have an option to switch between languages or chose their default preferred language.

Issue: When I execute FLP the default from SU01 is not picked and it is always English (since the browser default is English). If I change the browser default to German; FLP will be loaded in German.

I have checked SICF the default language is not maintained for ushell:

SU01 Default:

The FLP URL:

https://<server>:<port>/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell/shells/abap/FioriLaunchpad.html?sap-language=&sap-client=<client>

For me the priority that it is taking is:

URL parameter > Browser Language

Instead of what is mentioned in the help.sap.com -- URL parameter > SU01 > Browser Language.

Thanks and kind regards,

Sagar

    Where is it that the language you expect is not showing? There are different causes for this, such as SM59 destinations can cause data from the backend to come in a different language if the language is specified there, and I believe i18n files are selected based on the browser, not the values shown there.

    If you change the sap-language parameter in the URL or user setttings, doe it show as expected?

    Does the expected language show in the user settings of the launchpad?

      Hi John,

      I guess i should have put a screenshot of the FLP homepage :)

      The Issue is: When I log into FLP using SSO (which means i don't have access to the login page) - I see my FLP homepage (tiles etc) in English Language. Whereas in my SU01 I have set Germane DE as my default language.

      URL: https://<server>:<port>/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell/shells/abap/FioriLaunchpad.html?sap-client=370#Shell-home

      For me the priority that it is taking is:

      URL parameter > Browser Language

      Instead of what is mentioned in the help.sap.com -- URL parameter > SU01 > Browser Language.

      Kind regards,

      Sagar
