    when i launch my WD in a new window from UWL, i realise my confirmation links are missing at the confirmation page.   However, when i access it from the portal , the links are working fine.

    In UWL, I have tried launch in new window and in portal mode , but the links just do not appear at the confirmation perspective.  

    I wonder if the new window need to configured any additional settings in the portal.   I realised that if i create an iview, it works fine.  Any ways to have the WD shows the links at the confirmation ?

      What are the minimum code changes are required to launch WD from a new window from UWL in NWDS.

      I have similar issues in the ”Leave Request” Form.

          Hi Woon Peng sam,
          Nice to see your reply.

          I forgot to mention that I am using EP6& ECC5.
          and not able to find “Define links on the confirmation page” in ECC5.

          Using below code the Link is displaying but when i click nothing is coming.

          Same action for “Link” is working fine from the initiator side but not from the UWL.

          Please suggest me if any alternative setting is there.

          Where can be found these xml file.

      Please change the FPM configuration in the last step. You have to do this from the role “Self- Service Administrator”.
      Hope this helps.
