Javascript error calling a bi 7.0 webapplication from a bsp application

Hi everyone,

This is the scenario we're facing a javascript error :

Enterprise Portal is calling a custom bsp application ( via an iview in the enterprise portal ) in the bi system with a parameter "template_id" and a value, which is the technical name of a bi web application.

The bsp application is evaluating the parameter by some custom code and creating a html page with a redirect or a maintenance message to the bi web application passed with the parameter "template_id".

The html link to the bi web application is created according to this documentation :

Purpose of the bsp application :

in the bi system there is a database table to maintain a flag for each webtemplate and infocube, which should not be called via the enterprise portal for a certain time ( some kind of maintenance switch ). The bsp application then decides to show a maintenance page for the called webtemplate or to send the redirect page to the client.

The process described above is :

working with the bi 7.01 sp7 in the bi ( enterprise portal sp22 ) in the productive system.

working in the Q&A system bi 7.01 sp8 with bi 3.5 web applications.

not working in the Q&A system bi 7.01 sp8 with bi 7.0 web applications.

The javascript error calling bi 7.0 web applications is :

Message: Object doesn't support this property or method
Line: 96
Char: 11
Code: 0

We've opened a message. Support center is saying that this method isn't supported by sap. We should ommit the bsp application and the used functionality.

Is there any way to find out, what is causing this object is missing ?

Is there another way than a bsp application to use this custom maintenance function in the described system setup ?

system components :

production system

SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Portal SP22

SAP BI 7.01 SP 7

q&a system

SAP NetWeaver 7.0 Portal SP22

SAP BI 7.01 SP 8

Kind regards.
