How work exactly the internal aliases in ICF

Hi all,

I have small problem with internal aliases. I have a bsp application in SAP name space, so in SICF I can find it in this node:


if I create an internal alias (in SICF transaction) in the node:

<b>/sap/bc/bsp/spt/</b> (it's normal that the last node is spt and not sap) when I call my URL I get this error message:

<b>BSP Exception: the Application Name myBspApplAlias in URL /sap/bc/bsp/spt/myBspApplAlias is invalid.</b>

I have checked that every node is active

Now I create an other internal alias in node <b>/sap/bc/</b>

and now it works fine.

So after some testing I have found that if the internal alias is created in a node deeper than <b>/sap/bc/</b> it doesn't work.

I would like to know if this behaviour is normal or not, and if it's possible for me to have an internal alias in node <b>/sap/bc/bsp/spt/</b> that point to an application in node <b>/sap/bc/bsp/sap/</b>.

Thanks in advance for all your response.

Best Regards

    Much more important is the node onto which the alias is pointing and how you use it in the browser!

    For example, I created an alias "/sap/bc/bsp/xyz/" which points onto "/sap/bc/bsp/sap". In the browser I then called it with "/sap/bc/bsp/xyz/it00/default.htm". Effectively the URL from the browser is matched segment for segment against the alias onto a target node. And then there must still be enough tokens left to navigate through the original tree to your application.

    It is a slightly complex material, and I would really in this case recommend the documentation. Should you suspect an error, OSS (CSN internal!) problem ticket onto BC-MID-ICF.
