OBN - Unable to add iview to operation

Active Participant

Dear portal experts,

I'm experiencing problems when adding a custom iview to an operation on a existing business object.

The operation is called from a web dynpro application with POWL using launchpad (R/3 transaction LPD_CUST).

Calling the operation is not an issue. I get the popup in the portal saying that no iview is linked to this operation.

I have full permission on both folders in the PCD.

When I go to the business object in the PCD, I select the operation and navigate to my custom iview in the content tree. I get the action "Add iview to operation" in the context menu for the iview. So far so good.

When I execute the operation, nothing happens. When I retrieve the list of iviews that are linked to my operation, nothing is found.

I have tried to do the same for other iviews/operations, but nothing seems to work.

Do any of you have experienced and/or fixed this before?

thanks in advance!

Best regards,

If adding iview to operation doesnt work, try to add operation to iview.

Open iview, from drop down select Object-Based Navigation and then right click on operation from content tree.

Its a straight forward approach in either way you do it.

Also make sure this iview is attached to a role and that role is assigned to you. Else you will see that iview not defined for operation.

Hi Nag,

Thanks for your suggestion, but that's not working out either. There is no action available on the operation when I open the obn page from the tree.

Any other suggestions?

Kind regards,
