New features in Personas 2.0 SP02; also Personas 1.0 SP04

SAP Screen Personas 2.0 SP02 (also Personas 1.0 SP04) which was released recently provides following new features to continue to improve user experience.

Launch Personas in full screen from URL

Personas 2.0 SP02 can be launched in browser full screen by passing “fullscreen=true” URL parameter as shown below

Resize Script window

If the contents of script window is not fully visible, then the window size can be altered by holding the bottom right corner and dragging it with the mouse to adjust to suitable size.

Switch flavor from script

It is now possible to switch to different flavor using “Switch Flavor” function inside script and passing the flavor name as the parameter.

Auto wrap labels

Text wrapping can be enabled for standard and custom Personas labels by selecting “Wrap text” option or ticking on “IsTextWrappingEnabled” option in properties window.

Turn on/off snap-to-grid

Controls can now be moved independent of the grid in Personas editor by turning off snap-to-grid option in the editor. If required it can be turned on using the same button in editor (circled in red below)

Elevated trust mode for frontend services

Silverlight runtime executes in a sandboxed environment with less trust and hence highly secured. This means that the runtime cannot access the file system without explicit acceptance from the user. For Personas this leads to issues, because the standard SAP GUI permits interactions with the file system via custom dialogs, and silent execution.


So Personas 2.0 SP02 now supports two modes

Basic mode – The trust levels are low and Personas would prompt the user to accept each and every file operation that the application would have to perform.


Elevated mode – Personas can be run in elevated trusted application by enabling in-browser trusted applications and importing Personas certificate into “Trusted Publisher” and “Trusted Root Certification Authorities” settings in the browser. This would provide high trust level for Personas to allow it to remove unnecessary popups and support front-end service operations.


Trust mode can be viewed (marked in red) in the help screen of Personas as shown below

Web dispatcher for shortlinks

When web dispatcher is used for load balancing then you can now configure the URL of web dispatcher in SPRO -> Cross-Application Components -> SAP Scren Personas -> Maintain Personas Global Settings, so the shortlinks can use dispatcher URL and not the application server URL

      Hi Manuel,

      Can you check if there are any errors in Config check tool (/n/persos/admin_ui -> Tools -> Configuration Check). Also can you confirm if you are using Kernel 721 SP 228 or later and the version of Basis you are using?

      Also please check if user is assigned systems in Personas admin UI (/n/persos/admin_ui -> User Management -> User Maintenance -> <Enter Used Id> -> Show User -> Manage Systems)

      Regards

      Chinthan

      Hello,

      In Section Launch Personas in full screen from URL,

      Can you help where actually "fullscreen=true" should be added in SAP or personas.

      So that it would be directly reflected in browser.

      Regards,

      Rajesh Phutane

      Hello Rajesh -

      I am not sure if I understand your question.

      Can you please clarify.

      The fullscreen parameter needs to be added for the Personas URL to launch it in full screen mode.

      For instance, here is the url I use to access Personas:

      http://<host>:<port>/sap/bc/bsp/persos/mainapp/index.html

      In order to access it in fullscreen mode, I would add the parameter as follows:

      http://<host>:<port>/sap/bc/bsp/persos/mainapp/index.html?fullscreen=true

      Hope this helps.
