POWL CHIP or Workload CHIP

Workload CHIP (POWL Link List)

Displays categories and links to a personalized selection of worklists in a summary-like format.


With the CHIP “POWL Link List” you can embedd the navigation part of the original POWL UI into Page Builder.


The following parameter need to be set on configuration level (not visible in personalization level):

 POWL Application ID: The identifier of your POWL application. Input help available

 Configuration Identification: This is the Web Dynpro configuration used by the POWL framework to determine the OBN targets for POWL applications. By default the configuration “POWL_COLLECTOR_DEFAULT_CONFIG” is used, which maps any POWL application to the OBN target “POWL.DISPLAY”

 Enable Personalization: By setting this flag you allow the end user to access the personalization features for the POWL navigation area.

Multiple Applications

It is possible to show content from multiple POWL applications within the same CHIP:

 Create a new application which acts as group (TA FPB_MAINTAIN_HIER)

 Then assign this group application as parent of all your applications

 In the configuration of the POWL Link List you select the group application as POWL Application ID.

 All child applications of the group will be collected and displayed. Ordering is done automatically.


If you only have one Workload CHIP in your role, you only need one navigation information. By default OBN target information BO System “SAP_ERP_Common”, BO Name “POWL” and BO Operation “DISPLAY” is used. If you would like to use more than one Workload CHIP within your role, you have to define a component configuration for WD component POWL_COLLECTOR. You then use the configuration in the CHIP configuration identification field.


1. Add the POWL Link List CHIP to the page.

2. Configure the CHIP via “Define Link List”

3. Set the title of the CHIP (e.g. “Workload”)

4. Save the Page.
