Basic Troubleshooting - Infrastructure

If you think anything needs to be added, please let us know 🙂

Below you can check some basic information when facing several issues inside your system. This is important to speed up the solution of incidents, and also to help us on support to handle these issues faster.

1.Frontend / Oberon / UI
3.Output / Printing
4.Extension Fields / Mashups
5.Microsoft Integration


1) Frontend / Oberon / UI

1.1 - When you experience any dumps on the system:

There is some basic information that always help support to tackle these faster:

  •  Please provide us the exact steps to reproduce the issue;

  •  Please also provide the screenshot(s) of your issue;

  •  Is this occurring for all users? Provide examples

  • Authorization to reproduce, if possible


1.2 - Sometimes, simply try to clear your Silverlight cache.

This can solve many issues in Silverlight UI:

1) Click Windows "Start" button --> All Programs
2) Microsoft Silverlight
3) Tab "Application Storage"
4) Select the URL of your system
5) Click "Delete..." --> Yes --> Ok
6) Close the browser and reopen


1.3 - If you experience any "strange" behavior on your screen, this might have been caused by a corrupted personalization.

To try to correct this, you can go to Personalize --> This Screen --> Discard

Please notice that will erase ALL the changes done to this screen (columns resized, labels changed) but only for your user.


1.4 - In order to avoid many issues please always use the normal URL of your system, as per below example:

https://my******.sapbydesign.com OR https://my******.crm.ondemand.com


1.5 - Edit Layout Functionality


1.6 FAQs for Code List Restrictions



1.7 Model Rule Editor



1.8 - Adaptation




2) Mobile


2.1 - Basic checks for Mobile issues:

- Device Model

- App version

- Clear your app cache

Getting started:



2.2  -  See if the same issue occurs on your normal URL browser system

If yes, please state that inside the incident


2.3  -  Please provide the log files, and if possible the screenshot(s) showing the issue on device screen.


2.4  - Offline




3) Output / Printing

3.1 - Cloud Print Manager



3.2 - Output Management




3.3 - Emails



3.4 - When printing on A3 size, the system prints on A4

This is actually a problem with MS Silverlight, which only occurs with some printers.
There is nothing SAP can do to solve this.

As a workaround, you can use a virtual printer, for example, PDF printer.

Afterwards, please print this PDF file to your local printer.


4) Extension Fields / Mashups

4.1 - Mashups



4.2 - Extension Fields




5) Microsoft Integration

5.1 - When filling a template and uploading to system, sometimes you might face an error 500.

When having this, please double check the data entered on some fields. Usually, this is the cause here.

When not sure, support team can check on backend which is the incorrect data.

Please make sure that you are using the latest version of the Template downloaded from the system. Avoid saving the template locally and filling to upload later to the system.
