2731214 - Deep Links in Employee Central - PP3


Deep Link configured to land on Employee Information page does land in PP3 first page instead

"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."


  • Employee Central - People Profile
  • Employee Central - Employment information

Reproducing the Issue

Configure deeplink like:

  • "/sf/personalinfo?selecteduser=UserID" or
  • "/sf/employmentinfo?selecteduser=UserID"

The link always lands on the first page rather than the actual requested page


Deep links are not supported in PP3 like they were in V12
PP3 the section are not subdivided in blocks like it was in V12
Thus the behavior is now different.


It is expected behavior that the DEEP LINK takes user to the FIRST Page after requesting "sf/employmentinfo" or any other page with employee's personal and employment profile.

The link will land in the FIRST Page and user need to scroll down to the desired area.

Please raise an enhancement request.

Alternatively, as a workaround, kindly follow the below SAP Blog: DeepLink in PP3 – Navigate directly to the portlet
