How to make my addon appear on the menuitem list on sap b1 startup?


I developed a sample "ui addon" that is supposed to create a new menuitem and display a form when clicked.

I was able to install it using the b1de installation wizard and everything appears to be working...

The problem:

After installing the addon, the only way for it to start is to set the "Default Group", in the "Add-on Admnistration window", to "manual" and than go to the "Add-on Manager" select it from the list and hit "Start" to make it run. The problem is that i have to do this everytime i want the addon to run and what i wanted to know is how to make it start automatically everytime i start sap b1.

I already tried setting the default group to automatic, but sap changes it to manual in the Add-on Manager. Am i doing something wrong?

Thank you for your time,

    HI Patricia,

    The the user settings, and set the at the user settings to automatic.

    The best way is mandatory, if you have any required functionality inside. (this can be set at ard file generation using the Mandatory check box).
