How To - Rename Search Field Labels using WDJ


Hello Experts,

I'm developing an WDJ application that is utilizing the MDM Configurator (...mdm/wdconfig). I've written WDJ code using the native MDM Search Component Interface. However, when I run the code, I get native field names that are being pulled directly from the repository. I need the ability to rename or re-label the fields due to the clutter of how MDM pulls the names from the repository. I'm exposing the app in the SAP Portal.

Q: How do you rename a field label in WDJ that can be exposed in the portal? The native MDM Configurator does not support an "alias" text field for this type of activity. If this can be done, can you please supply some sample code? If this cannot be done, what are my options ?

Example: From: "Authorized Replacement Parts::Program"

To: "Replacement Parts"
