How to access SAP CRM Web UI Screen Configuration

SAP Web UI Configuration allows modifying the user screen without coding.  By accessing the “View configuration” is possible to define/modify:

  • Assignment blocks label.
  • Assignment blocks position and visibility (hidden, closed, opened).
  • Overview Assignment Block – Screen layout:
    • Include subsection titles
    • Fields label of screen
    • Fields visibility (add, remove).
    • Field position.
    • Field validation (mandatory, optional).
    • Additional fields (enhanced fields – not standard fields).
  • Detailed Assignment Block – Screen layout:
    • Change order of available field for display

There are different ways to access the SAP Web UI Configuration. However in closed sap system client (such as quality or production), knowledge is required to identify correctly the component to be modified. Those changes need to be implemented directly in development using any of the available option to access Web UI configuration.

A very common mistake in some many projects,that consultants are not able to perform correctly the UI changes if the system client is not open.

How does it work?

Before modify a UI Component, is necessary to identify the component that required modification.

If you want to know Component set name from the Web UI page, you must select any field on the screen, and Click F2 button on the Web UI screen and you will get the detailed information.

To modify any UI Object is necessary to know: the component, the view and the “Role Key” configuration for the page.
