URL Parameters

To control the Web Dynpro ABAP runtime or the Web Dynpro ABAP application, you can use the following URL query string parameters in a request URL.

You simply extend the relevant URL in the browser:

<schema>://<host>.<domain>.<extension>:<port>/sap/bc/webdynpro/<namespace>/<application name>?<parameter name>=<parameter value>


Parameter names and parameter values are not case sensitive (exception: sap-exiturl is case-sensitive, if the link is to a case-sensitive server). You can combine several parameters in one URL.
