These Release Notes focus on new features and improvements delivered as part of the WebClient UI Framework EhP3 Support Package 13.

 

Administrator Experience

The features below were added to improve the Administrator’s experience using the backend of the WebClient UI.

Performance Assistant Note and KBA Search (PANKS) Integration

With this feature, you can search SAP Notes and KBAs using error messages. This feature integrates PANKS to the Web UI. Once activated, you will see an additional magnifying glass icon on the error messages in the message area. Selecting this magnifying glass will trigger a search using the error’s text. The results are presented on a new browser tab, where you can select the ones relevant to you.

NOTE: In order for this feature to work, you must have the function module SEARCH_NOTES, RFC destinations for the Note Assistant (transaction SNOTE) must be maintained, and the user must have debugging rights (i.e. S_DEVELOP) and the bspwd_user_level parameter set to 8 or higher in SU01.

If you already have the SAPGUI implementation (SAP Note 2020356) running, you will only need to ensure that you have the proper debugging authorization and parameters.
