2400253 - Determining where to set and configure the Navigation Mode under Portal environment


  • You need to set the Document Rendering Mode or Navigation mode for an iview
  • You make changes to the iview however checking a HTTP trace you still observe the incorrect rendering mode or navigation mode getting sent
  • When you Preview the iview via Portal Content Management the document mode is set correctly
  • You are using either of the below to launch the iview or application:
    • A custom application
    • Absolute Navigation
    • WebDynpro ABAP or Java application 
    • Launchpad to call the application (e.g: LPD_CUST)
  • Some examples of where a Portal is not responsible for handling the navigation include:
    • ESS/MSS Dashboards maintained under the R3 system, e.g. under transaction LPD_CUST or XSSMenu (Homepage Framework Menu)
    • SRM Vendor websites that are executed via the SRM Shopping Cart e.g. opening an external catalog that requires Edge when the application runs Quirks. 
    • WebDynpro applications which are calling a Portal iview via the Absolute Navigation technology/WebDynpro Navigation API



  • SAP NetWeaver application Server for Java release independent
  • SAP Enterprise Portal
