This blog will talk about basic configuration needed to adapt an existing WDA ESS application to customer requirement.
I have previously talked about basic configuration needed for Customizing ESS Overview Page in new WDA setup Launch Pad Customization in SAP ESS:Step by Step.
For example purpose i have taken ESS Leave request Service.
Open ABAP Workbench (SE80) and search for application configuration HRESS_AC_PTARQ_LEAVEREQ.Press Start Configurator.This opens up configuration editor.Press Display and you can see the component details
Now go to Component Configuration and Choose Deep-Copy.
What you have land up into is FloorPlan Manager Application Hierarchy.Choose the required components and give then a suitable Z Name .You can select all or make a custom selection.Start Deep-Copy.
You will be asked to choose a package and create transport request.Save and exit.
Now there are 2 parts in an Application Customization ,configuration and personalization.If your requirement is to personalize the page for all users like layouts,components visible,launch pad assignment etc then open you custom copy of application configuration and execute it using Shift+F8.That will open the application in administrator mode and here you can do your personalization.
Now for configuring the application at UIBB level or setting global application parameters in the application open your custom application configuration and proceed as above but now instead of Display,you can go to Change mode in component configuration.
Above is the application hierarchy created when you deep copy.
