URL iView Issue

Former Member

Hello All,

I created a URL iView and I can preview it successfully. However, upon embedding the URL iView in a page and previewing the page, I get a blank container/iView. Any ideas on why this happens and how it can be fixed?

Regards,

Motaz

Dear Motaz,

Are you seeing any javascript error at the left bottom corner while accessing this URL iview during runtime?

If the portal host and the ivew has different domains, then

this contravenes the javascript same origin policy:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Same_origin_policy

You can Relax the domain also in the called application (you can use

javascript code like provided in Note 764773 ' iView Automatic Height

feature limitations' to do that). But note that if the javascript code

does other manipulations on the portal parent, you might get unexpected

effects, like the portal framework being replaced by the application

content.

Please also refer the Note 632440 'Domain barrier in the browser of the SAP Enterprise Portal

Dear Sowmya,

First of all, thank You for your support.

Secondly, there is no javascript error appearing. And unfortunately, I cannot change the code in the application as we do not have NWDI set up. Also, it doesn't seem that the iView height is the problem as I am using the 'Full_Page' property.

The problem is this case did not appear in previous portal implementations. I successfully incorporated and operated this page in past implementations. Perhaps it is because of different versions. Also, why would work in Firefox and not Explorer?

Any other suggestions?

Have you tried on some other machine other than yours on internet explorer whether the same issue exists there also?

Dear Arun,

We did try it with admin users. The same case.

@Sahill: Yes, we've tried on several machines. Still no luck.

Hi Motaz,

Try adding the Portal URL and iviews URL (prot://host:port ) to IE's trusted site and see.

Also one qn. Have you tried with different versions of IE ? If you are trying beyond IE 7, please see if running on compatability mode helps.

Hi Motaz,

You might want to consider using HTTP diagnostic or monitoring tool like HTTPWatch to trace what is happening in your browser while you are previewing the page.

It might tell you where is it failing and the root cause. Hope this helps.

Additionally, have you tried assigning the 'problematic' page to a role and try viewing the page during runtime? I've seen cases before with URL iViews where the preview fails but running absolutely fine during actual runtime.

Cheers.

Hello Everyone,

I thank you for your input. Unfortunately, all of your suggestions did not fix the problem.

The thing is all iViews can be previewed directly successfully. The issue appears when they are embedded in the page. Some iViews, the ones with the same domain as our portal, preview successfully in the page. However, any URL with a different domain does not. The issue only appears on Internet Explorer. They work fine on Mozilla Firefox, but as you know, Mozilla Firefox is not compatible with the SAP EP (except for specific versions or using workarounds).

I tried changing a couple of settings in the 'Internet Options' -> 'Security' like 'Navigate windows and frames across different domains' which I enabled but I still face the same issue.

Any ideas?

Dear Motaz,

PLease check the layout of the page. use full column

page layout. then preview it directly.

Also play around page properties.

Hello Motaz,

This should work straight forward. Are you adding this to default framework page eg with layout 1 column.

You can play around with the HEIGHT_TYPE of the Page and control the display.
