HowTo Set Up Portal On Device

Portal On Device (POD) opens new horizons and usage scope for the SAP Portal

POD enables the people on the move, the Managers on the move, from meeting to meeting,

armed with Tablets/IPads to be productive on the move in between meetings instead of

being forced to wait to be productive when they can be anchored to their pc’s on their

desks.

Portal On Device raises a new question mark for companies mobilising their SAP

infrastructure. There is now no need for mobile applications here, and mobile apps there,

access from mobile devices can now be secured and managed through the

single entry point doorway to the enterprise systems, the SAP Portal.

On-Line access can now be contained within the SAP Portal and off-line access can be

handled with SUP.

Reference Documentation

This how to guide is based upon and quotes from the excellent POD documentation on the SAP Help Portal

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/3a/21f0bdbeeb4cf6a479efb19d718ff7/frameset.htm

Step 1, Configuring Support for HTML 5

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/3a/21f0bdbeeb4cf6a479efb19d718ff7/frameset.htm

The framework page for portal on device is based on HTML5. By default, SAP NetWeaver Portal does

not support HTML5.

To use portal on device, you must enable support for HTML5 in SAP NetWeaver

Administrator by setting the value of the html5.compliant property to iViewDependent.

Prerequisites

·        

Yo     you are assigned the Super Admin role or the NWA_SUPERADMIN role

Procedure

1.       In SAP NetWeaver Administrator, navigate to Configuration Infrastructure Java System Properties .

2.       In the Details table, select the Services tab.

3.       Search for portal and select Portal Runtime Container Extension.

4.       In the Extended Details table, search for html5 and set the value of the html5.compliant property

          to iViewDependent.

5.       Choose Save.

Note

The iViewDependent value works together with the com.sap.portal.prt.html5.compliant property

in the PortalApp.xml file. When developing an application, you set the value of this property to true to

define that a specific iView is HTML5 compliant. This setting adds the <!DOCTYPE> declaration, which informs

the Web browser that this is an HTML5 file.

Step 2)  Enabling Filtering Portal Content by Desktop

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/3a/21f0bdbeeb4cf6a479efb19d718ff7/frameset.htm

To enable the filtering of portal content by the portal desktop on which it is displayed,

you must set the FilterbyDesktopView property to true. This setting enables you to use

a filter ID string to tag a portal desktop, and then use the same filter ID to tag all the portal

content to display in that desktop.

Prerequisites

·     

y         You are assigned the Super Admin role or the NWA_SUPERADMIN role

Procedure

1.  

          In SAP NetWeaver Administrator, navigate to Configuration Infrastructure Application Modules .

2.       In the Module List table, search for helper and select com.sap.portal.navigation.helperservice.

3.       In the Web Module Details table, search for helper and select navigation_events_helper.

4.       In the Portal Service Details table, search for the FilterbyDesktopView property and set its value to true.

Recommendation

You can also add the value of the filter ID to the FilterByExcludedFilterIDs property, as described

in Preventing On-Device Content from Being Displayed in Portal Desktops.

5.  

       Choose Save (next to Web Module Details).

Step 3) Configuring Properties of Mobile Framework Pages

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/3a/21f0bdbeeb4cf6a479efb19d718ff7/frameset.htm

Configuring Properties of Mobile Framework Pages

The portal provides the following framework pages for use on mobile devices:

Smartphone Framework Page and Tablet Framework Page.

In the Framework Page Configuration tool

( Content Administration Portal Display Framework Page Configuration ),

you can configure properties such as the following:

·     

        Displaying the header

·         Displaying a logo or a title in the center of the header

·         Displaying the action button in the header

·         Actions to display in the action bar or menu, such as Add to Favorites, Refresh, Log Off

·         Enabling the toolbox

·         Displaying the search bar

o    In the Tablet Framework Page, you can also determine the location of the search bar:

          in the header or in the toolbox

     Smartphone-Framework-Page.JPG

3b) Configuring Desktop Display Rules for Mobile Devices

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/3a/21f0bdbeeb4cf6a479efb19d718ff7/frameset.htm

Portal on device comes with display rules for that associate between the out-of-the-box

Smartphone Portal Desktop and Tablet Portal Desktop and the device types Smartphone and Tablet,

respectively.

You can use device groups and device types in rule collections to assign a specific desktop at runtime,

according to the user agent of the browser being used to access the portal. Using device types in the

rule collection enables you to assign the same desktop to more than one device group

(of the same type) using a single IF statement. For example, you can configure a rule that associates

the Smartphone Portal Desktop desktop with a custom device group that you created.

Note

If you are using device types in a rule collection, you must make sure that at least one device

group is defined with the required device type. If you are using device groups in a rule collection,

you must first define the required device groups. For more information, see Using Device Groups.

Instead of using the device group mechanism, you can also configure a URL alias that displays the

mobile desktop. For more information, see Defining URL Aliases.

End of the note.

Prerequisites

·

Step 4) Creating Device Groups

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/a0/67c1b2cc2a4091accda82eff2b015f/frameset.htm

A device group is an object that contains one or more user agent definitions.

You can create as many device groups as you require. For each device group,

you define its priority for runtime evaluation, its type, and the user agents that

belong to the device group. You can then use the device groups in rule collections,

to define which desktop should be displayed for users using access devices that belong

to a certain device group.

Procedure

1.

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/3a/21f0bdbeeb4cf6a479efb19d718ff7/frameset.htm

Configuring the Use of Logon Screens Adapted for Mobile Devices

When accessing the portal with a smartphone or tablet device, portal on device uses logon screens

that are adapted for display on a mobile device. The use of these logon screens is configured using

the Logon Screen per Device property in SAP NetWeaver Administrator.

Step 9) Configuring a Home Page

You can use either an iView or a page to define a Home page. You first configure its properties

for portal on device and then, you add the Home page to your mobile role.

Prerequisites

·     

         You are assigned the Content Admin role

Procedure

1.  

          In the portal, navigate to Content Administration Portal Content Management .

2.       In the Portal Catalog, select the iView or page to be the Home page, and from the context menu choose Open Properties .

3.       In the Properties editor, choose Modify Properties, and configure the following properties:

o    Entry Point: select the checkbox

o    Filter ID: enter the values that you configured for the corresponding on-device desktop(s).

For example, com.sap.portal.smartphone.

o    Mobile Perspective: enter Home.

o    Height Type: select Automatic to enable the application height to adjust dynamically according to the amount of content.

o    Isolation Method:

All iViews displayed in mobile framework pages must be configured as isolated: Isolation Method = URL.

A page can be either isolated or embedded.

For more information, see Isolation Method of iViews.

4.       Save your changes.

5.       Add the Home page to your mobile role.

Using Multiple Home Pages

You can define more than one Home page, for different contexts. When there is more than one portal

object with the Home perspective, the order in which the pages are displayed is determined by the

value of the Sort Priority property. The lowest numeric value is displayed first, and so on.

For more information, see Defining the Sort Sequence of Top-Level Navigation Nodes.

You can also assign different Home pages to different roles.

13.    Save your changes.

http://help.sap.com/saphelp_nw73/helpdata/en/c8/ebacfbc8154f21afb238aeae564075/content.htm

Step 10) Configuring the Launcher

To define the Launcher, you use one of the portal container objects: role folder, role, or workset.

First, you set the value of the Mobile Perspective property of the object to Launcher.

Then, you add the Launcher to your mobile role. Finally, you add the content items to display in the Launcher.

For each content item, you need to configure whether it opens in the portal content area, or in a new portal window.

You can also specify custom icons for each item in the Launcher, instead of the default icons that are provided for an application and a folder.

Note

There is only one Launcher. When more than one object has the Launcher mobile perspective,

the content items from all container objects are grouped together in the Launcher with the

highest Sort Priority value (lowest numeric value). The order in which the contents of the other

container objects are added, is determined by the value of the Sort Priority property.

The lower the numeric value, the earlier (higher up) the object contents are added.

Prerequisites

·     

          You are assigned the Content Admin role

Procedure

1.      

          In the portal, navigate to Content Administration Portal Content Management .

2.      

          In the Portal Catalog, select the role or workset to be the Launcher, and from the context menu choose

         Open Properties . From within a role, you can also select (and open) a role folder to be the Launcher.

3.       In the Properties editor, choose Modify Properties and configure the following properties:

o    Entry Point: select the checkbox

o    Filter ID: enter the values you configured for the corresponding on-device desktop(s).

For example, com.sap.portal.smartphone.

o    Mobile Perspective: enter Launcher.

4.       Save your changes.

5.       Add the items to display in the Launcher:

1.                   For each item, select the required value for the Launch in New Window property:

§  Display in Portal Content Area

§  Display in Separate Headerless Portal Window

§  Display in Separate Window

For more information, see Navigating in Portal on Device.

2.                   To use a custom icon for an item, specify a value for the Icon URI.

For more information, see Using Custom Icons.

Add the Launcher to your mobile role.

19.    Save your changes.

     (For this example I added the standard UWL to the Launcher)

  

      And  the proof of the pudding, let’s see how it looks on the IPad

     1) POD Logon Screen:

     POD-Logon-small.jpg  

       2) POD Desktop:

   POD-Desktop-small.jpg

       3) POD ToolBar:

        POD-ToolBar-Angle-small.jpg

        4) POD Launcher

   POD-Launcher-small.jpg

       5) POD Universal Worklist – UWL

    POD-UWL-small.jpg

        Next Steps:

               .  We need those smart Developers at SAP to write ‘Smart Device Friendly’

               versions of the Portal Business Packages in HTML5 and JQueryM to reside

               on the Portal and serve up all of the SAP Business Suite’s favourite apps in a

               Smart Device friendly way

              . beginning with, of course, UWL, XSS, Bex Web, Shopping Cart etc etc

      If you are interested in POD then hopefully this blog will help to get you going

      Hi Aviad,

      you are welcome.

      Please, when you’re at lunch with your Developer colleagues can you politely ask

      them to get on and write the ‘Smart Device’ versions of the Business Suite Portal Business

      Packages.

      User take up of POD will be a no-brainer so to speak once the Smart Device Business Packages are available.

      Thank you.

      Andy.

            Hi Lexian,

            ok, can we confirm,

            1)  The Portal On Device Logon Screen, as I have shown in the screenshot above the POD Logon screen is different from the normal PC Portal Logon screen.

            Do you get the POD Logon screen, the same POD logon screen style as I have shown in the screenshot above ?

            2) Have you create UWL as a Launcher application ?

            3) Do you see the UWL Launcher application icon the same as shown in the screenshot above ?

            Andy.

    Hi Andy,

    Thanks for your blog first.

    I have small doubt on this. do this Portal depends on the smartphone or tablet OS versions? means it will support only  >=iOS 5 for iPhones?

    and what would be the url to access from smartphones? is it same how we are accessiing for desktops like, http:// abc.xyz.net:50000/irj/portal ? or we need to change the url according url alias ?

    suppose i create url alias as “portal/smartphone” ,then accessing url would be “http://abc.xyz.net:50000/irj/portal/smartphone” ?

    Could you please suggest me here ?

    Thanks in Advance!!!

      Hi Kiran,

      again apologies for the delay in replying, I was on holiday 🙂

      What O/S and versions etc are supported by POD ?

      According to this OSS Note: 

      SAP Note 1705067 – Known issues for Portal on Device –
      7.30 and 7.31

      SAP NetWeaver Portal on Device Support: Browsers, Devices, and
      Operating Systems
      SAP NetWeaver 7.30 SP07/7.31 SP03 provide, a new, out-of-the-box Smartphone
      Framework Page.
      SAP NetWeaver 7.30 SP08/7.31 SP05 provide, a new, out-of-the-box Tablet
      Framework Page.
      The following runtime environments are supported:
      o Operating Systems: iOS5, Android 4.0
      o Smrtphone devices:iPhone 4/4s, Samsung Galaxy, HTC Sensation
      o Tablet devices: iPad1/2; Galaxy tab 10.1
      o Browsers: DDefault device browsers (iOS – Safari, Android – default
      browser)

      The Url access…  as long as you have completed all of the steps in the blog then you will be able to use your standard portal url /irj or /irj/portal for POD because the devices will be recognised by the Portal’s Display Rules.

      All the best,

      Andy.

        When I last saw SAP Note 1705067 – Known issues for Portal on Device –
        7.30 and 7.31, it stated that WD Java is not fully supported. Currently, this note is being worked on Internally. However, I understand that it still should show up the basic WD Java screens like the UWL.

          Hi Murali,

          that’s right and if you look at the screenshots in my blog above you can see a screenshot of the UWL.

          Kind regards,

          Andy.

  3. Virag Shinde

    Any idea how to install the POD software package on the Portal ? Can it be done via SDM or do we have to do it using NWDS and which version of NWDS , 7 or 7.3 ?

    (0) 
    1. Andy Silvey Post author

      Hi Virag,

      I tried to make it clear in the blog,

      Pre-Requisites

          . NW EP 7.30 SP08

          

                or

           . NW EP 7.31 SP05

      This means, if you have an EP 7.3 or 7.31 which is on a lower Support Stack version than those described above you will need to use the JSPM to deploy the above Support Stack minimum versions.

      All the best,

      Andy.

        And… don’t miss the added value you can get from the mobile workspaces, which are part of Enterprise Workspaces.

        For this, you need to deploy Enterprise Workspaces on top on the portal.

          Hi Pankaj,

          POD, Mobile Portal is the greatest thing to happen to SAP’s Portal in the last ten years.

          It has widened the UserAgent/Device scope of SAP’s Portal, and as Aviad keeps saying, while leveraging existing investment.

          The greatest thing is, for any company with a BYOD Policy the Portal is supporting the widest range of Devices with it’s Mobile Framework Pages and Device Groups – I really wonder how many people/Customers/Partners have realised this that SAP’s Portal is out of the box supporting Bring Your Own Device BYOD ! while leveraging existing investment.

          How valuable is that ?

    Andy,

    Great blog to start with and enjoyed while going thru the configuratio in my Portal (7.3 SP9).

    While i’ve an issue with ‘height’ of the object content being displayed in both Tablet & Smartphone! It just displays around 20% of the height for all the objects, how do I make it full or 100% view…?

    Thanks, MS

      I’ve different objects being displayed: UWL iView, URL iView, BSP with UI5 iViews.. etc!

      All of these object’s height is displayed with a fixed height..! Any solutions? The height property of all the objects are Automatic! Navigating these objects using ‘

      Display in Separate Headerless Portal Window' also has similar behaviour..!

        Please have a look at the following SAP notes:

        • URL iView and locally deployed application: 1832376
        • Application Integration iView: 1878204
        • SAPUI5 iView: 1708020

          Thanks a lot Aviad, but no luck! The Note-1832376 applicable in my case and tried both the options in the note..didn’t worked. In my case there are no AI & SAPUI5 iViews!

          Is there any other work-around?

          Another point, i’m using Ripple Mission Control for rendering the applications in both Tablet and Smartphone!

          -MS

          Aviad, thanks for your support! There was a break-thru … with Page being FULL-PAGE and iView being FIXED (with custom pixel value)!! This was the case with both URL & AI iViews.. not sure if this is standard!

          Anyway’s thanks again 🙂

    Thank you for the informartion sharing, it is great.

    I have been able to setup the Portal On Device for 7.3 sp8.I am currently working on customizing the Mobile Logon Page. I have followed the blog Customizing the Portal Log-On Pages by  Yotam Kadishay . I have been able to change the colors of the page by editing the *.css files but I have not been able to Change the Text “SAP NerWeaver” to my companys name.  I have changed all the jsp files:  certLogonPageMobile.jsp &  logonPageMobile.jsp from

    /com.sap.security.core.logon/servlet_jsp/logon_ui_resources/root/mobile

    The work area I have deleted all the *.java and *.class files and restarted the service com.sap.security.core.logon. The work area files get recreated with my text changes but the POD Logon screen Text does not change.

    Any hints or documentaion would be greatly appreciated

    Thank you

    Sarah

      Hi Sarah,

      I don’t know the answer, a couple of ways I would try to solve it…

      1) Forums on here on SCN

      2) Google Search:

      Google

      Amongst the results are these two…

      Configuring the Use of Logon Screens Adapted for Mobile Devices – Portal – SAP Library

      Developing a Custom Logon Screen – Developing Authentication Enhancements on the AS Java – SAP Library

      See if those two links help, see if the other links on the google search help and put a question on the forums here, I wrote that blog two years ago so by now there must be others who’ve experienced the same challenge as you and can respond to a questions in the Forums.

      And when you solve it…. write a blog on customising the Portal on Device – Mobile Portal logon screen 🙂

      Hope that helps.

      Best regards,

      Andy.

        Hello Andy,

        Nice blog. Very helpful.

        I have already configured the POD and working fine. I have SAP EP NW 7.40 SPS08.

        Now I am looking for integrating UWL into EP. Searched UWL iView template for mobile but I could not find it.

        What needs to be done to get this?

        Do we need to install Enterprise Workspaces 1.1? If yes, Is it free?

        Thanks in advance.

        Regards,

        Anil Patil

            Hi Andy,

            Thanks a lot for your kind and prompt reply.

            I have gone thru the blog ‘Consuming the SAP Portal on Mobile Devices’. But I could not find ‘Mobile UWL is now available’.

            I got SAP Note 1788567 which says, ‘Enterprise Workspaces’ is separately licensed.

            Regards,

            Anil Patil

              Hi Anil,

              it’s written in that blog:

              This new service pack provides enhanced and extended mobile and social capabilities for the SAP NetWeaver Portal, in four major areas: •Mobile Homepage – 16 new mobile homepage templates and multiple new mobile ready modules. •Mobile user interface for the SAP NetWeaver Portal Universal Worklist – an HTML5 based user interface for the existing Universal Worklist running on smartphones and tablets, while reusing the existing configuration of the Universal Worklist (SSO, UWL configuration, etc.)

              Best regards,

              Andy.
