Welcome message format in NICKNAME+LASTNAME required for specific sountry

Hi experts

I need Portal Welcome message in the following format

Welcome <NICKNAME> <LASTNAME>

instead of default

Welcome <FIRSTNAME> <LASTNAME>

NICKNAME field is available in SU01 table and it should be for a specific country for a multi country portal release.

Is it portal admin task or dev task involved ?

Thanks in advance

ASR

    In your masthead par file , open the Headerview.jsp.

    in that jsp file , go to the GetwelcomeMsg() function. Using userContext API you can customize the welcome message

    For importing and deploying the par file please search in SDN.

      Hi,

      Are you able to find how to pull the Nickname from SAP onto the masthead? Please let me know how did you do that? We have the preferred name stored in the Master Data Repository which is a SQL database. I would like to know can we call the MDR using JDBC connection and pull the preferred name field?

      Any ideas??

      Thanks,

      Madhavi
