functionality of Customize Text Mapping button in path ContentAdmin-webdynp

Hi All,

What is the functionality of "Customize Text Mapping" button which is present in portal in the path Content Administration -> WebDynpro?

I was trying to modify one of the SAP given label(name of the label)of a UI Element-Label in ESS Address service(ess-us-addr). In one of the reference material I read.... "The custom text mapping functionality of this service can be made available by specifying the URL parameter "app.EnableTextMappings=true"."

Where should i specify this URL Parameter..?

I am not getting this button "Customize Text Mapping" in Content Administration-> WebDynpro. Is there any setting that I have to do to get this button?

With a further function of the Web Dynpro Content Administrator you can assign other terms (texts) for terms that were already defined within a Web Dynpro application. The texts defined in the Web Dynpro application need not be changed. These text mappings are used at runtime to replace certain technical terms and texts


In order to be able to use this function, you must make various settings in the configuration of the Web Dynpro runtime environment. You must configure the following parameters:

· sap.textMapping.enable

· sap.textMapping.object

· sap.textMapping.separators

· sap.textMapping.systemName

· sap.textMapping.systemNumber.

You can find a detailed description of the individual parameters and how to configure these parameters in the procedure Configuring the Web Dynpro Runtime Environment.

For Configuration
