You can define more than one source URL for any URL iView. Apart from the default URL, which is not language-specific, you can define any number of additional URLs; each one corresponding to a different language.

If a portal user’s language matches a language defined in the iView, then the corresponding language-specific URL will be executed at runtime. The default URL functions as the fallback URL if no language-specific URL matches the user’s language.

Defining multiple URLs per iView is useful for sites that support multiple languages by means of language-specific URLs; for example, you can define URLs that are language variants of the default www.google.com URL of Google, such as www.google.de and www.google.jp. In other cases, you can define in the same iView, variant URLs which reference different Web sites.

    Hi Expert…

       Is it possible to set multiple versions of single url iveiw based on the user Authorizations.

            user1… URL1
            user2… URL2
      It should be available at the same place but based on the authorizations URL1 or URL2 should be populated .. Right now we are planning to write par file for this requirement..

       Thanks in advance

      … but if your are using the “Dynamic iView Properties” approach I have praised now for a long time on SDN and will re-do it at TechEd Amsterdam, knick-knack, it’s not much work.
      Best regards, Detlev

      1. Hi Detlev,
        I am not completely sure what you mean by “Dynamic iView Properties” can you please elaborate some more.
        We are in discussions whether to implement the URL iView to support multi URL’s dependent on various properties, for example language (already exits), User (suggested), browser type….
        Tell me what you think.

        Thanks and Regards,
        Erez

          Hi Erez,
          as SAP employee, you probably have access to the TechEd DVDs?! Check out my presentation Dynamic iView Properties (Amsterdam) or search for “proy iView Detlev” on the SDN forum.
          Hope it helps

          1. Hi Detlev,
            I have found some things in the forum, but I just could not find the place to download the presentation you gave in TechEd.
            Do you have any link to there? Can you send it to me offline (erez.nissim@sap.com)?

            Thanks and Regards,
            Erez

  2. We have an EP7 (2004s SP9) and I can’t find the Language-specific URLs mode in the URL iView Editor.
    Is there any switch to enable this feature, or another version of URL iview PAR file should be used.
    The help from (http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw04/helpdata/en/44/aabd5c7e8e0a47e10000000a1553f7/frameset.htm) Adding Language-Specific URLs describes such features that are not available in our portal.

    Do you have any idea why?

    Many thanks for your kind help.

    Best Regards
    Richard Palotai

    1. Hi,
      You are correct the feature was only entered to
      SP11 in NW04S.

      If its important to you i can supply you with the par files, so you can deploy them and use the feature on SP9.

      Thanks and Regards,
      Erez

      1. Hi Erez,

        That would be wonderful. Could you pls. send it to my email address Palotai.Richard@fmc.hu.

        Do you think that implementing Note 961793(Adding Language-Specific URLs) also can solve this problem?

        Many thanks for your kind help

        1. Hi Richard,
          I have sent you by mail a zip file containing 3 par files, please deploy them.
          These par files were made in our development environment so they will not include translations yet… that means that you will only be able to see the strings in English.
          If that’s a problem tell me and I will send you the original par files of SP11, which includes all the translations files (they are a little older from what I sent you).

          Regarding the note it will not help since it just explains the feature, and not how to install it.

          Thanks and Regards,
          Erez
