Actions in List Report ViewLocate this document in the navigation structure

If desired, you can enable certain common actions specific to your use case for list report items. You can choose to display the actions in either the toolbar or within a specific column for line items.

Actions in the Toolbar

You may wish to display actions in the toolbar to allow users to perform an action for one or more lines in the table.

Common Functions in Toolbar

The table below describes how to set up your annotations so that certain common functions will be rendered in the toolbar:




Create (+)

sap:creatable="true" for the root entity set



sap:deletable="true" for the root entity set

The Delete feature is enabled by default, as the entity set is already deletable (default value is true).

Custom Actions in Toolbar (Specify Text)

To specify a text for your action, use the property and specify the text to display. The example below shows how to display an action to create a copy of the list item in the toolbar:

		<Record Type="UI.DataField">
Actions for Line Items

For information about setting up annotations for actions within a line item of the list report, see Line Item Actions in Tables.

Confirmation Popover

If you wish to display a popover when the user triggers the action, add the IfActionCritical annotation as shown below:

<Annotations Target="GWSAMPLE_BASIC.GWSAMPLE_BASIC_Entities/RegenerateAllData">
        <Annotation Term="" Bool="true"/>
