My EP Support Blog

Who am I?

My name is Maya and I am from the Portal support group.

The main task of our group is to solve bugs in the product – so we’re only supposed to receive messages about actual bugs.

This is not always what happens in reality. Many of the cases that initially seem to be bugs end up being an issue with configuration or incorrect usage.

One of the important activities that we have in our group is to reduce these kinds of messages and save time both for you – the customers – and for us (fewer messages = less work J).

So the purpose of this blog is

  1. Share these issues with you – interesting cases that I encounter in the course of my support work that can be solved either by using a workaround or with correct configuration as well
  2. New bugs which either I or my team colleagues fix.

And how can you help me with this?

  1. By distributing this blog to other portal customers.
  2. By suggesting cases that you think could be interesting for everyone – either cases that you solved on your own or issues that were solved through messages – you can add your suggestions in the comments section of this blog.

The first case that I want to share with you is an issue with portal support for Chrome.

So let’s begin…

some pages in the Portal are not supported in Chrome

September 2014


It’s been a long time since my last post – but I think it was worth waiting!

I made a thought  research on the standard/quirks issues of the Portal since IE started supporting standard mode, and summarized it in the following blog:

IE and Portal – Standards/Quirks Mode Evolution (or Love-Hate Relationships)

December 2014

Hello to my followers,

I just published a new blog about an interesting case I’ve investigated.

It’s about how you should perform navigation in the Portal.

here’s the link:

Portal Display Mode Mismatched

May 2015

Hi There,

I published a new blog which is related the Portal and IE rendering issues.

It’s about rendering issues when running an iView in standalone mode.

      Hello Maya,

      this is a very good idea! 🙂 I'm looking forward to the cases and their solution that you share.

      Will this blog be something like the main blog, where all future case-blogs will be edited in as a link? Just read the first case-blog, so this question is answered. *g*

      Could you please include the portal version, that the case was in, in your future blogs? That could help to find it easier and also help to determine, of the blog could be helpful for our portal. 🙂 Or will you just do that for cases, where the version and SP level matters?

      Hi Maya,

      did you know how to setup broadcast message in portal in easy way that flash automatically once user logged in portal.

      right now i am using sap standard broadcast message tool but that tool is not so much good.

      i am not a portal guy so i need something easy to setup.

      Thanks in advance
