Deactivation of the NWBC Splash Screen

Dear all,


this document outlines how the NWBC splash screen can be deactivated. When launching the NetWeaver Business Client (Transaction NWBC) the splash screen starts first. The splash screen shows all the role assignments the user has and is helpful in test systems for testing the roles. However, in productive systems it is recommended to deactivate the splash screen so that the NWBC starts directly.


A screenshot of the splash screen with standard roles assigned:



To deactivate the splash screen we have to deactivate the service /default_host/sap/bc/nwbc/nwbc_launch in transaction SICF. I suggest to search via the ServiceName field for *nwbc_launch* (so that you don’t have to navigate thru all the services). Deactivation can be done with a right click and select “Deactivate Service”.




After deactivation of the service the NetWeaver Business Client starts immediately.




Hope this is helpful for you.
