Creation of WEB UI Component and navigation with standard component
By Ravi Veera Venkata, Igate
Application Enhancement Tool (AET)
In SAP CRM 4.0 to 6.0, we have been using the GUI
based tool called Easy Enhancement Work Bench (EEWB) for the creation of new
custom fields for business objects.
In SAP CRM 7.0, a new WEB UI based development tool
has been introduced by SAP called the Application Enhancement Tool (AET) for
creation of fields for business objects. This tool is integrated with the UI
Configuration Tool. It is an enhanced version of the older EEWB tool. It also
supports Mobile, BI, Advanced Search, Search Result List, Drop Downs and F4
helps to be incorporated with the field from the UI itself.
AET has many advantages over EEWB. AET is very easy
to use and not much technical knowledge is required to create fields using AET
as compared to EEWB. AET is also considered less risky as compared to EEWB as
deletion of the extension fields is very easy. In AET a new separate append is
created for each of the new field created. So it is more flexible as compared to
SAP recommends using AET as and wherever supported
than EEWB in SAP CRM.
Create New field using AET
In order to use AET, some basic settings and
authorizations are required.
First of all, we need to decide on the Package name
and Generation prefix (optional) for extensions created for your enhancement.
Once it is decides, we would set it in the system using the transaction ‘AXTSYS’.
The Namespace is automatically derived from the above information. This is a
Alternative path for the defining the system
settings in the SPRO transaction is:
SPRO->SAP Reference IMG->Customer
Relationship Management->UI Framework->UI Framework
Definition->Application Enhancement Tool->Define System Settings.
Once the settings are done, we have to enable the
AET tool from the WEB UI front end screen.
For accessing the AET tool from UI, we have to
first enable the ‘Configuration Mode’ in the path
Personalize->Settings->Personalize Settings path from the WEB UI screen.
Check the ‘Enable Configuration Mode’ check box
option under ‘Configuration Mode’ section and save it.
In order for this option to be available and visible in your Personalize
Settings, the user should have authorization to SAP object ‘CONFMOD’.
Once the configuration mode is enabled, the ‘Show
Configurable Areas’ icon would be displayed for the user on his WEB UI
Now the AET is ready for use from the UI screen.
