5.LOGICAL LINK


TAKING A CLOSER LOOK:

Before trying to change the navigation bar, there are certain technical details that we need to know. One such is LOGICAL LINK.

What is it?

I logged into web ui as service professional role. On the navigation bar I clicked on SERVICE CONTRACTS work center, I have been taken to the SERVICE CONTRACTS work center page.

Next, I clicked on SERVICE CONTRACTS in the second level menu, and then I have been taken to SEARCH PAGE of service contracts.



How this navigation is possible. Who tells to WEB CLIENT FRAME WORK to navigate to the SEARCH PAGE, , when, I clicked on SERVICE CONTRACTS.

Well this information will come from LOGICAL LINK. At this point of time, just understand that LOGICAL LINK helps us to navigate to different pages from navigation bar.

In above example, the SERVICE CONTRACTS work center will be associated with one logical link and also SERVICE CONTRACTS in the second level navigation also linked with one LOGICAL LINK. 




Each link with in the highlighted circle is associated with the LOGICAL LINK. Even All WORK CENTERS on the navigation bar also have their corresponding logical links.

WHEN WE NEED TO CREATE LOGICAL LINKS:

Generally logical links will be available for all SAP STANDARD components. If we create our own applications and if we want give access to our application from navigation bar then we need to create our own logical links.

We need to learn a lot before creating a logical link of our own . At this point of time,  try to understand that logical link enables navigation to different pages.
