Lately, there has been many questions regarding MSS ADD On and its customisation, So this is the reason for this blog.

It’s possible to configure the home page to not display the pieces of the home page (i.e) competency management, CATS dashboard etc. there are several views embedded in the standard delivery profile page. You can make a decision to show which views, You need to copy this to your Z Configuration in order to protect your changes in case of support package upgrade.Well, its always recommended to make a copy of the standard configuration and make changes to your Z one.

Please follow these Steps

Step 1 : Use Package PAOC_MSS in SE80

Step 2 : Select Configuration Name   HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP and click on Start Configurator

Step 3 Select the Atttributes or the piece you want to hide

Step 4 : Click on the attribute and check the box

This way the home page is launched without the competency management view. However, by using the personalize option

in the page, the users can add the view to the homepage. If you don’t want the view permantely than you can delete the UIBB by clicking on the

delete button on the top right corner of the configuration screen. This way, the users cannot add the view to the home page using personlization.

    Very helpful.  I am new to WD4A and am not sure about some of your steps.  At what point do you create the Z configuration?  Is this after you start the configurator for Component Configuration HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP (make a Z copy of this and then edit the Z copy, correct?)?  Is there a “How To Guide” anywhere on MSS Add-on 1.0 Customization?

    Again thanks for the great information.

      Many thanks for the comments

      Joyce : It is the first step when you copy the standard one into Z one and make your modificaiton on it.

      As shown in STEP 1, you can copy then to a Z one.

        Just to clarify, I start Component Configuration HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP.  In the editor for WD ABAP Componenet Configuration, I do a copy, rename my config to have a Z name and place it in a custom package.   I then make my changes and save.   How does the WD Application now to use my custom Component Configuration?   In another thread, I saw a reference to starting the Applicaton Configuration in Administration Mode.  Is that something different?  Thanks for your assistance on this as it is all new to me.

        Hi Idi,

        I provided more details in a comment further down this thread:

        The top level configuration is typically selected via the property sheet of the top level iView.

        We have EHP5 + MSS add-on.

        Standard iView is located (within portal Content Administration):

        Content Provided by SAP->line_manager->Add-on for Manager Self-Service->iViews

        ->Home Page

        Application=HRMSS_HOMEPAGE

        Config=HRMSS_HOMEPAGE

        When you launch the editor for the HRMSS_HOMEPAGE application configuration,

        it points to the HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP component configuration.

        If you create a custom ZHRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP component configuration

        also create a ZHRMSS_HOMEPAGE application configuration and point this to your

        custom component config.

        In the portal change the iView property to use your application config instead of the standard. We do this by copying the standard MSS role to a custom area within Content Administration and paste as “delta link” that way you can change values but the rest of the values feed through/update from the SAP delivered content.

        Hope that helps.

        George

    Always a pleasure reading your posts and blogs since they are so very practically oriented. There is no useless blah blah, it’s plain, simple and understandable.

      Hi Siddharth,

      I found that the ER-HR_MSS (MSS Add on 1.0) is not deployed and not activated in my ECC.

      I think this will the main reason behind, I didn’t find PAOC_MSS (Package) in SE80.

      Thank you.

    Siddharth,

    I am new to this and trying to follow your instructions. We are on Ehp6, I have created a new configuration for HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP, (Z_ HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP)  but cannot see how I get the component (FPM_OVP_COMPONENT) to call this Z… configuration, as it always calls the SAP default.  Vince

      or simple way is which i already mentioned abobe if you want to avoid Z configs

      checked the button to hide the element. In general, the procedure is

      to check the Hidden Element checkbox to hide the UIBB.

      and ensure Note 1524767 is implemented in your system ie STEP 4

      If you create Z configuraiton ie after copying from standard, you need to replace that in

      HRMSS_HOMEPAGE_OVP

    Hello Siddharth,

    I have enhanced the component configuration and made the two views hide.

    But I coudnt understand from where to hide the birthday and anniversary tab from reminder of dates view.

    Also birthday and anniversary tab is showing reminder of dates data. What could be the reason?

    Thanks,

    Seema

        Hi Siddharth,

        These two values are already disable in this component config.

        even after that, i am getting task monitoring data in birthday and anniversary tab.

        Second thins is to remove the tag, i have copied component config HRMSS_TEAM_PAGE_OVP and make the tab invisible but how to attach this z component config to application config HRMSS_TEAM_PAGE.

        Thanks,

        Seema
