Overview:

The Broadcast messages (BCM) is a feature that gives portal administrators the ability to broadcast messages to end users in a defined time frame. It also gives the ability to assign a message to certain groups or roles with priority (high/normal).

See SAP note 1930281 – Broadcast Message

Prerequisites:

You have installed SAP NetWeaver Enterprise Portal (EP) 7.31 SP11 or above.

User assigned to the Portal content administration role or Portal super administration role.

Don’t forget to activate BCM in the system – enabled the BCM service by setting the BCM is active property to true in NWA.

    Thanks for this blog Roman.

    I would like to perform some analysis. For instance, I would like to know how many people have read a broadcasted message.

    Do you know if there is a standard way to achieve this ?
