Cannot find deployed iView in Portal Content

In BP for MSS 60.1.5 running on EP6.0 SP9 NW04 there is an

iView com.sap.pct.hcm.rc_applicantoverview that in its property PAR_DEPENDENCIES refers among other iviews to the

iview com.sap.pct.hcm.rc_shortprofile.

I'd like to view/edit properties of the rc_shortprofile, but I cannot find it in the Portal Content. It has been deployed on the server and I can see it via SystemAdministration > Support > Portal Runtime tools, but cannot view the properties. Is there any way to find this iView via SAP EP and then edit its properties?

Best regards,

Beata

    Hi Beata,

    first let us clarify some wording:

    A <i>PAR</i> is a <i>Portal ARchive</i>. It is a zip in a certain format. It contains a <i>portal application</i>.

    A <i>portal application</i> consists of <i>components</i> and/or <i>services</i>.

    An <i>iView</i> is somehow an "instance" of a <i>component</i>. It is created within the portal. There are <i>no iViews in a PAR</i> (like: "There are no objects in a JAR (but classes).").

    With this in mind, the question is if there really exist an iView with the name you are looking for.

    What you see under Portal Runtime Tools is the application with it's components. Anyhow, the default properties of an iView or the properties of a component if called without packaged within an iView are the ones defined within portalapp.xml of the corresponding application.

    But if you change values in there, the changes are somewhat "global", so you should be sure if the component in question is called via an iView or just "as the component".

    The location of the portalapp.xml is under \usr\sap\<...>\JC<...>\j2ee\cluster\server<...>\apps\sap.com\irj\servlet_jsp\irj\root\WEB-INF\portal\portalapps\ \portalapp.xml

    Hope it helps

    Hi Detlev,

    Thank you for your answer. It is helpful, but I still don't understand why I cannot find iView com.sap.pct.hcm.rc_shortprofile in the Portal Content.

    The iview is referred in the SAP pdf-document "Business Package for Manager Self-Service 60.1" on page 179. In text on that page there is a direct reference to default.properties in the iViews that usually for the most iViews can be updated directly from the Portal Content. Maybe it's a question that SAP could help to answer?

    Best regards,

    Beata

    • Hi Beata,

      it is a pity that SAP itself uses an unproper terminology and doesn't update the doc... 😔

      When com.sap.pct.hcm.rc_shortprofile.default is called, to be proper, the component "default" of the Portal App com.sap.pct.hcm.rc_shortprofile is called. In EP5, to define components, property files have been used. These have been replaced in EP6 by the single portalapp.xml for one Portal App, where for each component a section has been introduced.

      Anyhow, normally one shouldn't edit this file but the parameters when an iView is built upon such a component. I don't know under which name the iView is built from this component within the Business Package, so I can't help you on searching. If you have the iView somewhere in the content, use "Add to favorites" if existing in the tray, with that you will get the PCD path.

      Hope it helps
