No reports displayed in MSS Report Launchpad

Hello everybody,

We set up ESS/MSS on a distributed environment.


ECC 6.0 EhP 3

Single-ABAP Stack

Installed Backend Component EA-HR 603

Activated Backend Function EA_FIN_1


NW 7.0 SPS 17

Single-Java Stack

Installed Components: SAPPCUI_GP 603 SP4, SAP_ESS 603 SP3, SAP_MSS 600 SP15


The configuration works fine for a couple of ESS and MSS iViews and pages, but we get the following problem with MSS Reports:

-> When calling the Launchpad no reports are displayed and an info message is shown telling "No objects were personalized".

-> When clicking on "Change Launchpad" you see several reports sorted in groupings. They are already listed in the table of shown reports but are not displayed in the launchpad.

-> When clicking on "Save and Exit" you get two additional info messages telling "No Applications entered", but no reports are displayed. When you then open "change launchpad" screen again the reports totally disappear from table of shown reports.

Portal Launchpad Configuration:

-> pcd:portal_content/

-> The launchpad iView connects to the backend via SSO which works fine for a lot of other ESS/MSS iViews

-> As application parameters the following is configured: "class=CL_FPB_SNI_ACCESS&role=MSS&instance=REP&display_external=X"

Backend Customization:

-> When launching transaction "fpb_launchpad_cust" with role MSS and instance REP you can see all the reports which are displayed in "change launchpad" screen.

-> All the reports are Transaction Reports

-> The Manager's Desktop (MDT) is not used


1.) Why are the reports not displayed in the launchpad, but in the "Change Launchpad" screen?

2.) Did we forget any customizing?

3.) Why do we see such info messages like "No objects were personalized"?

4.) And what refers the application parameter "class=CL_FPB_SNI_ACCESS" to?

Please help me,

    Hi everybody,

    finally we managed to fix this bug on our own.

    We set up the Managers Desktop (MDT) as suggested by SAP. But the MDT's reports could not be converted to the launchpad.

    Then we recognized via debugging that for any reason the following entries were missing in table FPB_LP6_SNI_REQ:

    - Role ROLE C 3 MSS

    - Instance INSTANCE C 3 REP

    Adding these entries manually fixed the problem.
