Procedure documentationParsing URLs Locate 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   Process   Parse URL  

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

    Note Note

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

    End of the note.

    Example Example

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

    End of the example.
  4. Check that the split path is correct.


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