Add Web Dynpro Applications to SAP Favorites Menu

After ABAP developers create Web Dynpro applications for the use of SAP users, these web dynpro applications can be easily reached by saving SAP Web Dynpro application URL in the SAP Favorites List. In this SAP guide, I'ld like to show step by step how SAP users can add ABAP Web Dynpro applications to their SAP Favorites menu.

Of course, SAP users can call the Web Dynpro application URL address directly from their browsers navigation area, but this requires users to store the WebDynpro application address some where else like the Web Browsers's Favorites menu, etc. Also if the SAP user is not logged on to the target SAP system, the Web Dynpro application might first display a Logon screen to the calling user in order to supply their SAP authentication token.

An other option for ABAP programmers to enable SAP users to use their Web Dynpro components is to create transaction for Web Dynpro application and authorize the users for new tcode.

The first step for storing your frequently used Web Dynpro applications in the SAP Favorites List, is logging to the target system. Then right-click and open the context menu on the Favorites menu root on SAP Easy Access menu.
Choose Insert Folder from the displayed sub-menu items.

When you select Web Dynpro application as URL type, the following user-dialog screen will be displayed automatically. On this screen, just provide the Web Dynpro Application name and a descriptive text for the short-cut menu item. If you need additional parameters for the URL, these parameters and parameter values can be entered here.
