As promised I am continuing my previous blog CRM 2007 How to --2A(Transaction Launcher) where I called the ECC transaction from
CRM ad I created the link in the work center. In this blog I will create a link as Quick Link. You can call any URL from CRM system. You
just need to follow below mentioned 6 steps:
Step1: Go to transaction SM30 and maintain the view CRMV_IC_LTX_URL

Maintain the URL ID, Description, Request Method and your desired URL as shown below and save your changes. In my example I
am calling GOOGLE.COM

Step 2: Go to Tr. SPRO->IMG and follow the path shown below to configure Tr. Launcher.

Give any ID name you wish ( Do not use F4 help) and component set ALL and continue.

Give description and mention any Z class name ( system will generate this class for you in $TEMP so if you are planning to
transport it to other systems then change the package to Z package for this class and save it so that you can transport it.)
If you want to launch the URL in new window select 'Stateful' else deselect it then continue

Select the Tr. Type = URL Transaction and then select the same URL id you have just maintained in step 1 and then skip
Transaction Parameters and Activity by pressing the continue button and complete the wizard.

Step 3: Now go to Define Nav Bar Profile as shown below and double click on Define Logical Link and create a new Logical Link as
shown below. You can copy any of the standard logical link of type "C Launch Transaction". Do not change the Target ID and
Parameter Class.

To open the URL in a new window


2011-07-18 20:21:15 Sreenivasan Unnikrishnan Business Card [Reply]

Hi Vikash

This blog is really informative and well explained.

We have a business requirement to open the URL in a new window with full browser options like with Toolbar,Menubar, addressbar
etc.

Currently when you chose Stateful it is opening the url without toolbar,menubar etc.

Do you know how we can enable the new window with full browser options.

The javascript command to open a new window is like this.

function open_win()
{
window.open("http://www.google.com","SREENI")
}

I would appreciate if you can revert back on this.

Problem with Stateful option


2011-05-19 05:03:05 Susana Morgado Business Card [Reply]

Hello Vikash,

Thank you for all the previous information. Was very helpfull.
Howerver I still have two problems:

1 - When I desactivate the stateful option I can't open the URL in webclient page, and nothing happens.

2 - When I activate the statefull option, the system open the URL in a new window, and in the WebClient window remains the
following message:

"The object you have selected is starting in a new browser window. You can continue working normally in the current application.
However, you may have to navigate back to the page you were working on. Close"

The problem is, if I close the new opened window (with the URL)I'm not available to reopen that by clicking in the URL botom in
the WC page.

Could you please tell me how can I resolve these problems?

I'm using the SAP CRM 7.0, and I'm trying to add a private address in the WebClient page.

Thanks in advance,
Susana

Problem with Stateful option


2011-10-31 03:23:42 Tim Holtschneider Business Card [Reply]

Hello,

with a similar set up of CRM 2007 and using url stateful transaction launcher url links, we experience the same behavior as
Susana does. That is, after closing a window opened by the transaction launcher, a reopening is not possible, unless a reload
of the CRM-session is initiated (reload-button).

I am concluding, that there is some kind of session-caching that is not updated, when a window is closed by the user.

Does anyone know a solution for this problem?

Regards,
Tim

Error opening URL in a new windows


2010-12-06 11:29:47 Beltran Sobredo Business Card [Reply]

Hi Vikash,

I´m experiencing some issues trying to open an URL in a new window (i.e. www.google.com).

If I do not set the parameter "Stateful", everything works fine.

But If I set this parameter, when I test the link en CRM Web UI I get an error message: "Object Expected" (in IE) or
"launch_ltx_window is not defined" (in Firefox)

Do you know what could be happening?

Could you help me please?

Thanks in advance!

Unable to Launch SAP CRM BSP Page from SAP CRM Web UI through Transaction Launcher
2010-09-03 00:29:19 Bujji Bujji Business Card [Reply]

Hi Vikas,

Could you please create a blog to launch a BSP Page from SAP CRM Web UI Through Transaction Launcher.

I am receiving an error message while launching a SAP CRM BSP Page from Navigation Bar through Transaction Launcher.

BSP Application: BP_HEAD (AccountDetails.do)

URL: The URL http://sapcrm.sap.com:8000/sap/bc/bsp/sap/bp_head/accountdetails.do was not called due to an error.

I am also receiving the same error message when I pasted the URL in the Internet Browser and also when accessed from SE80 by
opening the BSP application 'BP_HEAD' and right click->Test on Accountdetails.do

I am receiving the error messages all almost all the SAP CRM BSP Pages: BP_ADDR->StandardAddress.do etc.

But all the BSP pages are working fine when launching from WebUI.

How to rectify this error sothat I can launch the SAP CRM Pages through Transaction Launcher from SAP CRM Web UI?

Thanks,
Bujjii

it opens the VA02 tcode from erp but does not pass the parameter value to the vbeln field.

Please suggest what needs to done if such a requirement is there.

Hi Vikash,

Really thankful and great for your Blogs. I have an error message "Transaction ICEXECUTE is unknown" - when calling VL03N
transaction through transaction launcher in IC WebUI.

In CRMS_IC_CROSS_SYS tcode maintained URL as -


http://sapdev13.sapdom.usnc.emergyscorp.com:8000/sap/bc/gui/sap/its/webgui/!?~transaction=IC_LTXE&~okcode=ICEXECUTE

Please let me know if anything to be changed or wrong. Thanks in advance.

Ethan
Error Message "Transaction ICEXECUTE is unknown"
2010-02-09 05:58:00 Vikash Krishna Business Card [Reply]

Hi Ethan,

Some times this can be because of the authorization issue. Check your user authorization whether it has access to transaction
VL03N or not(See oss note 1139385). If this is not the case then search service marketplace with the key word ICEXECUTE
and you should get some oss notes which might help.

Thanks,
Vikash.

2010-02-09 08:13:09 Ethan Suryadevara Business Card [Reply]

Hi Vikash,

Basis guys took care of authorization, we already implemented OSS notes 1139385. We get this error message and when
we click on
"SAP EASY ACCESS" button on screen, its directing to VL03N tcode.
I have authorization to VL03N tcode in ERP System. In CRM system since we will not have ECC transaction(VL03N), is this
the problem for this error message?? Stucked up at this point from many days. Would be thankful if you can give some
solutions on this.

Regards
Ethan
