SAP Web Dispatcher - hide URL string on web browser

Hi

We want to setup SAP Web Dispatcher to hide part of the URL string for ABAP Web Dynpro as detailed below. We don't want users to see the full URL string as they navigate on the web browser.

Eg

Actual URL full string:

http://<fqdn>:<port>/sap/bc/webdynpro/sap/zw123da_summary_app?sap-language=ENetc

URL string that we want users to see on their web browser:

http://<fqdn>:<port>/sap/bc/webdynpro

This is to prevent people from knowing the string and attempting to type it in. Is there a way this can be setup without the need to introduce Apache or MS IIS??

Thanks

Dave

    you can declare external alias for this ..

    here is the procedure for th same

    To simplify calling up individual WAS applications, you can also define an alias for each WAS application. The user then only
     has to add the character string that was defined as an alias to the standard URL, for example, if the alias for the Balanced 
    Scorecard WAS application is /bsc): http://pwdf0479.wdf.sap-ag.de:1081/bsc.
    
    
    --> Choose the transaction SICF.
    --> Choose  External Aliases.
    --> Select a host.
    --> Choose  to create a new alias for the selected host.
    --> Enter the character string for the alias in the  External Alias field.
    --> Enter a description for the alias.
    --> Choose the Target Element tab page.
    --> Under Virt.Hosts / Services, navigate to the default_host - sap - public - bsp - sap node.
    --> If you want to define an alias for the Balanced Scorecard WAS application, choose the entry bsc under the sap node; if 
    you want to define an alias for the Management Cockpit WAS application, choose mc; if you want to define an alias for the 
    Value Driver Tree WAS application, choose vdt.
    
    --> Save your entries.
    
    

    thanks
