Features

The user can use the link to view the detailed data for event handlers belonging to the alert, without having to log on in the SAP Event Management system. The user cannot change the event handler data.

In the Web interface (Web Dynpro ABAP), you can define the link for one Web interface transaction only. When a user calls the link, the ICF starts the ICF service and SAP Event Management displays the detailed data for the event handlers belonging to the alert.

Note Note

Assign only the necessary authorizations to the service user, since SAP Event Management does not apply an authorization or filter concept for this user.

End of the note.
