Localization of PCD folder names possible?

Hi community,

I have some problems working with folders in the PCD editor. I am using EP6 SP2. As far as I figured out, there is no way to localize the folders titles (attribute com.sap.portal.pcm.Title), at least it's not working like I supposed it to be (same way as for iViews, pages and roles). Furthermore when transporting a PCD heirarchy with a transport package, all human-readable folder names are lost and replaced by the repective IDs. I found no way to rename the imported folders.

Regarding the second point, I found at help.sap.com, that this is a known issue ("works as designed"). However, I have trouble accpeting this, as from an end-user perspective this is inconvenient and makes browsing the portal catalog during a page personalization unusable.

Has anyone some great ideas or news on this? Will the current behaviour be changed in SP3 - or have I simply not found the "magical button"?

    Hello Alexander,

    the problem will be fixed with SP2 patch 4.

    If you have access to OSS (or CSN) system you can have a look at the following two notes:

    690201 - transport of folders

    705053 - folder editor

    A good way to analyse problems like those you described in your question is using the Pcd Inspector tool.

    It is now available as read-only version in SDN:

    https://www.sdn.sap.com/irj/servlet/prt/portal/prtroot/com.sapportals.km.docs/documents/a1-8-4/pcd inspector tool download.htm

    There is a documention of the tool that explains how to install it and how it works.

    Best Regards,

    Jens
