PPM – How to hide fields in Project popup window

Hi forum,

That topic is use to be for old CRM and old PPM outside solman but now we have to use it…; to test the new solman forums blog pots i save that tip to hide or edit layout elements in any solman webdynpro, the example if for PPM but the process will for for other solman ABAP webdynpros.

info: used in solman 7.2 and it work in the same way for solman 7.1

1.- Click on project table dashboard to open your project in a popup window.

2.- Use the button add favorite link to Internet Browser ( bookmarks, etc… ).

3.- Copy the url.

4.- Paste the url in a new Internet browser tab/window and concatenate with “&sap-config-mode=X”.

5.- You will see a banner in the top of page showing that the config mode is enable.

6.- Select any element of the screen and click on the right button of the mouse and click on “setting for current congiguration”

6.1.- option menu after righ click on a payout element

6.2.– current configuration for the element

7.- In the configuration poup you can select the options of the field, hide it, change to read only, etc…

save and close and the system wil ask you for a transport request to save your changes.

P.D. that it’s my firs blog post in the new scn forums… I have strange feelings using it 😉

      Great article! Really helpful. Thanks.


      PS: as it's now difficult to get the URL even when adding to bookmarks (due to the unified URL), here's another way to get it:

      1. Open the project you want to customize
      2. Right click in the new window somewhere below the bottom-most object (usually, the project hierarchy) and clic on "Technical Help".
      3. Copy the URL from the URL box, paste it in a new window and add the &sap-config-mode=X parameter at the end.

      Just to say thanks very much. It was easy, effective, no headache and powerful hit. Congratulation. I made it in 5 minute, no, less than that.


      Thanks again
