Sidepanel Folders

Essentially what I'm trying to do is give my users a list of URLs to BI content in a folder in the side panel.

For example:

1) user is on a shipment (VT02n)

2) user opens the side panel and the side panel should be called Loading Instructions and within this side panel should be a list of opendocument urls to various BI reports

so it should look like this:

Loading Instructions

  - loading instruction 1

  - loading instruction 2

  - loading instruction 3

  

3) I'm also trying to pass the shipment number from the main window to the sidepanel so it can be used as a parameter within the URL

I tried to create a Folder in PFCG (called Loading Instructions) and I've set it up as a sidepanel - then i added urls to the various loading instructions inside that folder.  When I run PFCG i don't see all the links - instead i have to choose from the dropdown each specific url to open that document.

Does anyone know how i can setup a side panel with a bunch of links inside it?  And can anyone help me set up the urls so they pickup a value from the main window

Hi Shane,

There are probably a few ways you could do this. The standard way SAP does it in their examples is to use one of the standard NetWeaver WebDynpro CHIPs take a look at either the Launchpad Link List or the PFCG Link List.

Or you could develop your own CHIP or BSP page that used the value you pass (shipment number) in from the GUI screen displayed in the main canvas of NWBC. You then assign that CHIP to a Side Panel (WebDynpro Component) and add that to your side panel folder in PFCG (same deal with the BSP).

The reason you are getting each link appearing as its own side panel is each link you've added to the folder in the role is being treated as a side panel - what you want is one side panel with a list of links.

Hth,
Simon
