Parsing URLsLocate this document in the navigation structure


You can use the Parse URL function to follow the process of the given path for an ICF service. This allows you, for example, to check whether the target service specified in an alias is called up correctly via the URL.


To follow the URL of a service or atlas, proceed as follows:

  1. Call transaction SICF.

  2. In the main menu, choose Start of the navigation path Process Next navigation step Parse URL End of the navigation path

  3. Specify the required service/alias path and choose Enter.


    The path always begins with '/'( slash) and the first node below the virtual host.


    If, for example, the complete ICF path is /default_host/sap/bc/ping, you need to enter /sap/bc/ping as the path.

  4. Check that the split path is correct.


The individual path elements show you whether the URL path has been split correctly.
