      Since you are familiar with launchpad configurations I thought I'd ask this of you.

      We noticed today while working in T-Code LPD_CUST, that when setting system alias, we have two in our system one is all caps and one is cased correctly.

      so we have:



      We've been told to use the one that is cased correctly.  However when we choose that one for the System Alias and save it, the system converts it to all upper case.

      We have been playing around with a proof of concept system and just noticed this today, do you think this is going to create issues?

      Hi Roger,

      If I understand you correctly in LPD_CUST transaction when you choose system alias and select SAP_ECC_HumanResources and save the entry then the system converts it to all upper case.

      If this is the scenario, then you need to create the connections SM59 in the same case (like capital letters) for the links to work in landing page.

      Regarding whether this will create issues with other applications, I am not sure, I think its better to get it confirmed with the LPD developers (by raising message).

      Hi Suresh,

      Nice work, thanks for sharing.

      I have a very small suggestion, if it started with a simple introduction & purpose of RFC and their types, even people belong to different SAP Spaces can simply understand. Once again thank you for sharing your knowledge.
