  • Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for sharing this.

    I am currently working on 1709 SP01 version and would like to activate 'view in browser' functionality. Could you pl. share the .WAR file that we could use. Also, if could pl. list down the list of steps to perform if we use Amazon API gateway. Do we also need a Java based web server also alongwith API gateway?



  • Kevin Roos Hello! Very nice blog post.

    I am not sure if I got it right, but as per your post, I don´t need to do anything in Cloud scenario (I am in SAP Marketing Cloud 1902 Cloud version). But once I add the link - View in Browser - it does not redirect to anywhere, unless I include a fallback link (what I understood I don't need it, since the redirection is automatic.)

    In the source code  for the View in Browser link - in the Email Template I see like this:

    I don't understand what I am missing. When I send the email, the link doesn't work.


    Can you give some light?


    Thanks a lot,


  • In 1809 marketing on-prem, there’s no “Insert View in Browser Link” in Contents Studio.

    is it possible to make this feature enabled on 1809 on-prem ?

    • Hello,

      as the blog states we can forward your request to consulting / expert services to develop a customer managed View In Browser solution.

      Kind regards

  • Dear Kevin

    Regarding your post, I want to check something with you.

    Where should I deply the war file? Can I know the directory path?

    And, I also wonder the file should be deployed on the server that is installed SAP MKT or not.

    I mean i need new web hosting server?
