Procedure documentationIntegrating Applications in the Work Center Infrastructure


The URL Framework provides an overview of URLs used in SAP Solution Manager. It provides an interface which allows you to integrate custom applications in SAP Solution Manager work centers. You can do the following:

  • Create a URL of the application

  • Integrate the application in one of the following SAP Solution Manager work centers:

    • Root Cause Analysis

    • SAP Solution Manager Administration

    • Technical Administration

    • Technical Monitoring

  • Edit existing URL

  • Rearrange existing applications in the work centers


  • You have developed an application which you want to make accessible. The application is installed on the SAP Solution Manager system or on a managed system.

  • You have started the SAP Solution Manager Administration work center.


  1. Create a URL of the application:

    1. In the Content view, choose the Root Cause Analysis pushbutton.

    2. Choose the URL Framework tab page.

    3. On the Applications tab page, choose the Create pushbutton.

      A dialog box appears.

    4. Enter data as required.

    5. Select the application type and choose OK.

    6. Choose OK.

      A logical representation of the application is created.

    7. In the Properties screen area, under URL, enter the following data:

      1. In the URL Type field, select the URL type and choose OK.

      2. In the URL Path field, enter the absolute path to indicate where the application is installed on the server.

        The absolute path contains the top directory, sub directories, and file name, for example, /sap/diagls_landscape_browser_app.

      3. In the Cardinality field, define whether the application is able to handle several objects or not.

    8. To see the generated URL, if the application is installed on a managed system, you have to specify the system context. The context is provided by the work center framework when the URL Framework is started.

      • To specify a managed system, do the following:

        1. Expand the Managed System Context screen area.

        2. Select the technical system or instance on which the application is installed.

      • To check the values of dynamic parameters, specify a managed system for dynamic parameters:

        1. Expand the Dynamic Parameters Context screen area.

        2. Select the technical scenario, system, host or instance on which the application is installed.

    9. Optional: You can create static and dynamic parameters, which are directly related to the Landscape API and which depend on the selected work center context.

      Example Example

      The application needs to have the extended system ID and the installation number of the selected technical system in the work center context. You create the dynamic values T_SYSTEM_LONG_SID and T_SYSTEM_INSTALL_NUMBER. At runtime these values are interpreted by the Landscape API, to provide the right value.

      End of the example.
      1. Choose the Parameters link.

      2. Choose Add.

      3. Enter the name of the parameter.

      4. In the Parameter Details field, enter a static value or select a dynamic value.

    10. Save your entries.

      In the Link field, a link is automatically generated and can be tested..

  2. Create a new view to integrate the application in a SAP Solution Manager work center:

    1. Choose the Groups tab page.

    2. In the Groups hierarchy, select the view and group into which the application is to be integrated.

      Note Note

      Under a View, only the application type Web Dynpro embedded (WD_EMB) is allowed. Under a POWL or Group both application types are allowed.

      End of the note.
    3. Select the Applications node.

    4. In the context menu, select Add Application.

      A dialog box appears.

    5. Select the application.

    6. Choose OK.
