Show Role ID and Workset ID in Editor

New functionality to configure Role and Workset editors released

with NW Portal 7.3 SP 9.

By default, objects in the Role Editor and the Workset Editor are displayed using the object name.
You can also configure the editors to display the atomic ID of each object, or to display a combination of both the object name and the object ID.
Next views (role example) are the same for role and workset editors:
Role by title:
Role by id:
Role by id_title :
Role by title_id :

How to configure:

In SAP NetWeaver Administrator (http(s)://<server>:<port>/nwa), go to the Application Modules page.
In the Module List area, select tc~pp~adm~wu~role_editor.
In the Web Module Details area, select the Web Dynpro Properties tab.
Select Components/, and in the Full Details area, set the view_mode property to one of the following values:

  • title    Displays the name of the object.
  • id       Displays the object ID.
  • id_title Displays the object in the following format: objectID (object name).
  • title_id Displays the object in the following format: object name (objectID)


Save your changes and restart the application.
