Static help files for webGUI transactions


In an ESS environment we want to use static help files, which should be maintained via the R/3 SE80.

In the case of existing interent services the solution is obvious, it's simply adding a language specific MIME file.

But there are transactions, for which an internet service doesn't exist, as they are executed and rendered on the fly via the webgui.

Is there any simple way to maintain static help files via the R/3 for transactions without an explicit internet service ?

    i have not worked with ESS. so i dont know how the help file will be called.

    If the transaction has <b>object services</b>(its the drop down button on the top left corner where you will see attachments, notes, etc), then you can attach documents for the object from transaction OAOR.

    But maintaining files directly on the ITS server is exactly what I want to avoid. I would like to maintain these help files on the R/3 where I have version cotrol etc.

    Judging from our discussion, there seems to be no way to maintain MIME files for EWT within R/3 without dedicated internet service.

    • Hi Christoph,

      you could i.e. create a service ZPZ02 in SE80 and set ~transaction to pz02 and ~EWT_statichelp in the service definition. Now you can add the mime files for the custom help to the service in SE80. This would allow you to use all the goodies that you get from having services store in the SAP system.

      Best regards,
