  6. 6. Getting StartedTopics Overview6 May, 20121 Getting StartedThis documentation describes how to configure and administer SAP GUI for Windows.1.1 Topics OverviewThe following table provides an overview of administration-relevant features in SAP GUI 7.30.Some of the features are new in release 7.30, some have already been introduced in an older SAPGUI version.Feature As ofVersionDescriptionSAPSignatureTheme ColorSetting7.30 It is now possible to display the SAP Signature Theme indifferent color schemes. The color setting can be defined inthe following ways: As SAP GUI Default (set in the SAP GUI optionsdialog) By system and optionally by client (set in the SAPGUI options dialog) As a System default (set via a profile parameter)For details, see SAP Signature Theme Color Setting.Branding 7.30 You can add a logo in the title bar of SAP GUI in SignatureDesign and Corbu.For details, see Using Branding.CustomizablePermissionsin the SAPGUI OptionsDialog7.30 You can now restrict the usage of the SAP GUI Optionsdialog by setting some or all options read-only in the SAPGUI Options dialog.For details, see Using Registry Values and the Read-OnlyFeature.ApplicationDataDirectoryChange7.20 The local working directory SAPWORKDIR is obsolete anda new Windows-compliant structure is used.For details, see Application Data Directories.SAP LogonConfigurationChanges7.20 Changed Configuration (*.ini) Files Storage.The storage of the saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files hasbeen changed as of SAP GUI for Windows 720.Change in creation and distribution of the serverconfiguration file(s).For details, see SAP Logon Configuration.
  7. 7. 2 Application Data Directories1.2 Related GuidesMay, 2012 71.2 Related GuidesYou can find more information in the Frontend Installation Guide, the Security Guide, and the EndUser Guide. These documents can be found in the documentation folder of the DVD or on the SAPGUI Family Page on SCN.2 Application Data DirectoriesStarting with SAP GUI for Windows 7.20 the local working directory SAPWORKDIR is obsolete anda new Windows-compliant structure is used. Windows offers dedicated directories in whichapplications can store their application-specific data like configuration files, temporary files, etc.There are two application data directories: One is intended for data that should be available to roaming users on whatever machinethey log on to. This is the application data directory located directly below the user profiledirectory and it can be reached using the environment variable %APPDATA%. The second application data directory is intended for data that will only be needed on thelocal machine, i.e. it will not be missed by a user when he or she logs on to a differentmachine. The data in this directory is not available to roaming users.2.1 Roaming User Application DirectoryThe configuration files of the SAP GUI are located in the roaming user application directory asshown in the following file/location overview. The SAP Logon configuration files saplogon.ini, sapshortcut.ini, SAPLogonTree.xml, andsaprules.xml are located as follows:Windows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPCommonWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPCommonSince other configuration files like sapmsg.ini, saproute.ini, and service files are usednot only by SAP GUI but also by other SAP components, they are stored in the old (< SAPGUI release 7.20) storage location (see note 38119). Input History databaseWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPSAPGUIHistoryWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPSAP GUIHistory
  8. 8. Application Data DirectoriesLocal User Application Directory8 May, 2012The directory for the history database can also be set to another default with the variableSetSapGuiHistoryDir while creating installation packages using the SAP Installation ServerAdministration Tool.The corresponding registry key is[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareSAPSAP Shared] "SaphistoryDir" on 32bitoperating systems and[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareWow6432NodeSAPSAP Shared]"SaphistoryDir" on 64bit operating systems.Use type "Expandable String Value", do not use string! Local Tab Order databaseWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPSAP GUILocalTabOrderWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPSAP GUILocalTabOrder ABAP Editor ConfigurationWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPSAP GUIABAP EditorWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPSAP GUIABAP Editor Floating Docking Container ConfigurationWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPSAP GUIDockingWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPSAP GUIABAP EditorDocking SAP GUI ScriptsWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPSAP GUIScriptsWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPSAP GUIScripts2.2 Local User Application DirectoryIn the local application data directory, temporary files, traces etc. are stored. Folder for temporary documents

You canconfigure the deletion of files also in other directories. For information on this, refer to thesecurity guide. Files downloaded by the userWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>My DocumentsSAPSAP GUIWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>DocumentsSAPSAP GUIThe directory for the downloaded files can also be set to another default with the variableSETSAPWORKDIR while creating installation packages using the SAP Installation ServerAdministration Tool.The corresponding registry key is[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareSAPSAP Shared] "SapWorkDir" on 32bitoperating systems and[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareWow6432NodeSAPSAP Shared] "SapWorkDir"on 64bit operating systemsType: Expandable String ValueThis registry value was always set by the installation for the SAP GUI for Windows 7.10and earlier versions. The installer of the SAP GUI for Windows as of 7.20 sets this valueonly, if a value has been specified in the SAP Installation Server Administration Tool.Therefore, it cannot be assumed that this registry value will exist on a client PC.The folders for the temporary and user documents should, therefore, be determined usingthe corresponding methods in the class CL_GUI_FRONTEND_SERVICES. The temporarydocument folder can be obtained using the method GET_TEMP_DIRECTORY and thedocument directory can be retrieved by means of the method GET_SAPGUI_WORKDIR. CacheWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Local SettingsApplication DataSAPSAPGUICacheWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataLocalSAPSAP GUICache
  10. 10. SAP Logon ConfigurationConfiguration (*.ini) Files Storage10 May, 2012It would not make sense to have the cache in the roaming directory, because it is a localcache. Accessing the cache over the network would nullify the advantages that it wouldotherwise provide. TracesWindows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Local SettingsApplication DataSAPSAPGUITracesWindows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataLocalSAPSAP GUITraces3 SAP Logon Configuration3.1 Configuration (*.ini) Files StorageThe storage of the saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files has been changed as of SAP GUI forWindows 720 (see also Application Data Directories).The storage of other SAP Logon configuration files like sapmsg.ini, saproute.ini andservice files has been kept the same as in the older SAP GUI releases (for details refer tonote 38119), because these files are not only used by SAP GUI, but also by other SAPcomponents. Therefore, no changes have been made concering the storage of these filesas of SAP GUI 720.With SAP GUI 7.20, the saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files are stored in the roaming userapplication directory. The default of this path is the SAPCommon directory:%APPDATA%SAPCommon%APPDATA% stands for the environment variable specifying the application data directory locateddirectly below the user profile directory.The paths for Windows XP/Vista/7 are as follows: Windows XP:C:Documents and Settings<username>Application DataSAPCommon Windows Vista/7:C:Users<username>AppDataRoamingSAPCommonThe file creation process depends on whether you install SAP GUI for the first time or if you do anupgrade: If you install SAP GUI for Windows ≥ 7.20 the first time on a client:After having installed SAP GUI, you start SAP Logon for the first time. The saplogon.ini filewill be automatically created in the Common directory mentioned above. Use SAP Logon
  11. 11. 3 SAP Logon Configuration3.1 Configuration (*.ini) Files StorageMay, 2012 11to create the necessary entries. Your configuration will be saved in the correspondingnewly created configuration file(s). If you upgrade an existing SAP GUI for Windows to release ≥ 7.20:After having upgraded the SAP GUI, you start SAP Logon for the first time. SAP Logon willnow search for the default saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files used in the former SAPLogon release in the known locations: the SAP GUI installation or the Windows directory.SAP Logon will then copy the existing saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files to the Commonfolder, so that the former configuration details can be used again with the upgraded SAPGUI. The old versions of the *.ini files used with previous SAP GUI releases will remain inthe former locations to allow going back to older SAP GUI releases, if this should ever berequired. However, note that entries you added in SAP Logon as of SAP GUI for Windows7.20 will not be added to the *.ini files in the old locations.SAP Logon will copy the existing saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files to theCommon folder only, when the file to be copied (in the SAP GUI installation or theWindows directory) is not defined as the server file. See section Creating andDistributing Server Configuration Files.In both cases, the next time you start SAP Logon or SAP LogonPad, the Common folder providesthe necessary configuration information.If necessary, you can change the default directory paths using the Options dialog in SAP Logon.You find the necessary options under SAP Logon Options -> Configuration Files. There, also thepath of your local configuration files and the names and content of the loaded local configurationfiles are displayed.You can still use the command line parameter /INI_FILE= or environment variableSAPLOGON_INI_FILE to make your own saplogon.ini file to be used by SAP Logon (Pad)as in the former SAP GUI for Windows releases (see the related note 38119).The searching order of the saplogon.ini file in SAP GUI for Windows as of release 7.20 is asfollows:1. File name from command line parameter /INI_FILE=2. File name from environment variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE3. saplogon.ini under Path of Local Configuration Files shown in the SAP Logon ConfigurationFiles dialog4. saplogon.ini in the SAP GUI installation directory5. saplogon.ini in the Windows directory4. and 5. will only be considered at the first start of SAP Logon (Pad), if no saplogon.ini file isyet existing under Path of Local Configuration Files described in bullet 3. And the file found willbe copied to the path of local configuration files for next SAP Logon (Pad) start.
  12. 12. SAP Logon ConfigurationCreating and Distributing Server Configuration Files12 May, 2012The sapshortcut.ini file is always stored in the same directory as the saplogon.ini. Additionally, anew configuration file SapLogonTree.xml will be created in the same directory as the saplogon.iniin order to store the tree (folder) structure defined in SAP Logon.If the SapLogonTree.xml is in the same path as your input saplogon.ini file and you use commandline parameter /INI_FILE= or environment variable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE to start SAP Logon(Pad), the tree (folder) structure defined in this SapLogonTree.xml will be used. Otherwise, a newSapLogonTree.xml will be created in the same path as the saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini filesused in SAP Logon. Any folder configuration in the running SAP Logon will be saved in thisSapLogonTree.xml file.In SAP Logon Pad, no configuration is possible and, therefore, no configuration files will/should bemodified in this path. If SapLogonTree.xml is not existing and cannot be created due to, forexample, authorization issues, no tree structure can be displayed in SAP Logon (PAD). An errormessage box will be shown and SAP Logon (Pad) will be terminated.o The value for command line parameter /INI_FILE= or environment variableSAPLOGON_INI_FILE should contain a full path and a file name, as for example,/INI_FILE=C:tempsaplogon1.ini.o If different saplogon (SAPShortcut) *.ini files are to be used, the ini files should bestored in different folders due to the configuration file SapLogonTree.xml. Forexample,/INI_FILE=C:tempconfig1saplogon1.iniand/INI_FILE=C:tempconfig2saplogon2.iniThis way, the corresponding SapLogonTree.xml files can be created respectively.In this example, SapLogonTree.xml in folder C:tempconfig1 corresponds toC:tempconfig1saplogon1.ini and SapLogonTree.xml in folder C:tempconfig2corresponds to C:tempconfig2saplogon2.ini.3.2 Creating and Distributing Server Configuration FilesThis section describes, how you can provide SAP Logon server configuration files for your users.ProcedureProceed as follows to create and distribute the server configuration file(s):1. Start SAP Logon with parameter /INI_FILE=[Path][name], for example:saplogon.exe /INI_FILE=N:730testsaplogon.iniorsaplogon.exe /INI_FILE=ServernameCSN2012730testsaplogon.iniwhere [Path] is the place for saplogon.exe to create and save the server (central)configuration files for your users, like SapLogonTree.xml, saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini.The files saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini can be old ini files you used in a former SAP GUIversion. If they are missing before starting SAP Logon, they will be created by SAP Logon.
  13. 13. 3 SAP Logon Configuration3.2 Creating and Distributing Server Configuration FilesMay, 2012 13The SapLogonTree.xml file will also be created. If it is already existing, for example, incase you restart SAP Logon, it will be reused.2. After the SAP Logon window appears, add folders and entries as needed.3. Terminate SAP Logon.The configuration files *.xml and *.ini under the folder given by the /INI_FILE= parameterare ready to be used by your users as server configuration files.4. If the users start SAP Logon (Pad) with /INI_FILE= command parameter or environmentvariable SAPLOGON_INI_FILE as in the older SAP GUI releases (see note 38119), onlythese central files will be used as so far.5. Your users can also use both the server and their own local configuration files together.This can be configured in the following ways:a. You create the registry key ConfigFileOnServer for your users on their localmachines as follows (note that the same key value ConfigFileOnServer undercurrent user HKCU must be deleted if existing):HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPSAPLogonOptions (32 bits)HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPSAPLogonOptions) (64 bits)"ConfigFileOnServer” ( REG_EXPAND_SZ) with server file name as value data,for example, ServernameCSN2009720testSapLogonTree.xml. (The string canalso contain unexpanded references to environment variables like %PATH%).b. Or you let your users run saplogon.exe, open SAP Logon option dialog, and inputthe XML file name with the full path in the field XML Configuration File on Server inthe Configuration Files dialog. The setting will be written to the Windows registry asExpandable String Value "ConfigFileOnServer" under current user HKCU:HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSAPSAPLogonOptionsFor SAP Logon (saplogon.exe), the setting under HKCU has higherpriority.For SAP Logon Pad (saplgpad.exe), the setting under HKLM has higherpriority.After that, your users can start SAP Logon by clicking the installed SAP Logon icon on thedesktop.The folders and entries defined on the server side will be shown together with the localconfiguration.6. In all cases, you still distribute the sapmsg.ini, saproute.ini and service files to your users’local PC as in the older SAP GUI releases. For information how to do this, refer to theFrontend Installation Guide.7. If you want to distribute the server configuration files to another place, you copy theexisting server configuration files to the new place. Then, edit the .xml file to change thepath for saplogon.ini or/and sapshortcut.ini file(s) in the following lines:<File type="Connections" name="..." /> or<File type="Shortcuts" name="..." />
  14. 14. Using BrandingActive Directory (LDAP) Support14 May, 2012The registry value for "ConfigFileOnServer" or the input for the field Configuration File onServer in the SAP Logon option dialog must be adjusted correspondingly.You can distribute the server configuration files on an HTTP server. For this, you set theURL for XML Configuration file on server according to bullets 4 or 5 above:http://.../SapLogonTree.xmland/or input the URL for the saplogon.ini and sapshortcut.ini files in the XML file like inbullet 7:<File type="Connections" name="http://.../saplogon.ini" /><File type="Shortcuts" name="http://.../sapshortcut.ini" />3.3 Active Directory (LDAP) SupportFor information on LDAP support see note 608781.3.4 Maintaining System Entries without *.ini/Service FileIn SAP Logon, users can maintain (system) connection entries for the Group/Server selection in theWizard without the local sapmsg.ini and service files existing on their PCs. For more information,see the SAP GUI End User Guide.3.5 Disabling SAP Logon Views via RegistryYou can set up the SAP Logon in such a way, that some of the three standard SAP Logon views(Explorer/List/Tree view) are not visible for the user.To disable any of the three available SAP Logon views, create the following registry keys:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPSAPLogon][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPSAPLogon] (32 Bit OS)“ShowExplorerView” (REG_DWORD) = 0 (disables the explorer view in SAP Logon)“ShowListView” (REG_DWORD) = 0 (disables the list view)“ShowTreeView” (REG_DWORD) = 0 (disables the tree view) In standard mode, at least one view needs to be enabled. In accessibility mode, the list view has to be enabled.4 Using BrandingYou can integrate a company/branding logo in the titlebar of a SAP GUI session. In the SAP GUIOptions dialog (page Visual Design → Branding), this feature is set read-only by default.Prerequisite The feature can be used for SAP Signature and Cobu Design.
  15. 15. 03.5 Disabling SAP Logon Views via RegistryMay, 2012 15 The size and format of the logo should be as follows: The optimal height for the picture is27 pixel. The shown width can be up to 160 pixel, but only if the height of 27 is notexceeded.If the picture does not fit in size, then the picture will be scaled so that it fits the optimalheight of 27 pixel. The width will be scaled symmetrically to the maximal allowed height orasymmetrically to fit the maximal allowed width.ProcedureProceed as follows to activate this feature and, optionally, allow users to change branding settings:1. To rollout the settings to the users, create the following registry keys:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearance][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearance] (32 Bit OS)"UseBrandingImage" (REG_DWORD) = 1 (activates the display of a logo in the titlebar ofa SAP GUI session, if a valid path to a branding picture is provided)"BrandingImage" (REG_SZ) with path name to picture as value data:C:<PathToBranding><YourCompanyBranding>.png"By default the branding feature is not editable by the user. Therefore, the users can see theabove set values on the page Visual Design → Branding in the SAP GUI Options dialog,but they cannot change the settings because these are read-only.2. Optional: In order to allow users to set this option from the SAP GUI Options dialog, youneed to create the following registry values:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearance][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance] (32 Bit OS)“UseBrandingImage_ReadOnly” (REG_DWORD) = 0“BrandingImage_ReadOnly” (REG_DWORD) = 0After restart of the SAP Logon, the settings on page Visual Design → Brandingwill be editable. When a user changes the settings, the SAP GUI Options dialog writesthese values to the following registry values under HKEY_CURRENT_USER:[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance]“UseBrandingImage” (REG_DWORD)“BrandingImage” (REG_SZ)The HKEY_CURRENT_USER values have a higher priority than values underHKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.5 Setting SAP Signature Theme ColorAs of SAP GUI 7.30, it is possible to display the SAP Signature Theme in different color schemes.The color setting can be defined in the following ways: As SAP GUI Default (set in the SAP GUI options dialog)
  16. 16. Setting SAP Signature Theme ColorSAP GUI Default Color for SAP Signature Design16 May, 2012 By system and optionally by client (set in the SAP GUI options dialog) As a System default (set via a profile parameter)The subsections below describe the different color setting possibilities from the administrator’sperspective.5.1 SAP GUI Default Color for SAP Signature DesignSAP Logon and SAP GUI sessions, which use default color settings configuration on the clientmachine and for which no SAP Signature color is defined on the SAP system, are shown in theSAP Signature default color (= blue).To rollout the default SAP Signature color to users, create the following registry key and valuesunder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearance][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearance](on 64-Bit OS)"SelectedTheme" [REG_DWORD] = 0x1 (SAP Signature Theme)"SignatureDefaultColor" [REG_SZ] (Possible values: "SAP Gold", "SAPGreen", "SAP Purple", "SAP Red" or "SAP Signature Default")The default SAP Signature color (=blue) can also be changed via the SAP GUI Options dialog onthe page Visual Design → Color Settings (if the SAP Signature Theme is selected in the Themecombobox). The SAP GUI Options dialog saves the settings under the same registry key andvalues, but under HKEY_CURRENT_USER. The HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry values have ahigher priority than the registry values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.5.2 System-Specific SAP Signature Color Settings (OptionsDialog)For SAP systems with a kernel in which the note 1617682 is built in, it is possible to set a differentSAP Signature color for different clients of a specific SAP system: System-specific RolloutTo roll out the SAP Signature color setting for a specific SAP system, create the followingregistry key and values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearanceSystems<SID>][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearanceSystems<SID>] (on 64-Bit OS)(replace "SID" by the sytem ID of your SAP system)"ThemeName" [REG_SZ] (Possible values: "SAP Gold", "SAP Green", "SAPPurple", "SAP Red" or "SAP Signature Default") Client-specific RolloutTo roll out the SAP Signature color setting for a specific client in a SAP system create thefollowing registry key and values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearanceSystems<SID><Client>]
  17. 17. 5 Setting SAP Signature Theme Color5.3 System-Specific SAP Signature Color Settings (System Profile Parameter)May, 2012 17[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearanceSystems<SID><Client>] (on 64-Bit OS)(replace "SID" by the System ID of your SAP system and replace client by the actual clientnumber, for example 100)"ThemeName" [REG_SZ] (Possible values: "SAP Gold", "SAP Green", "SAPPurple", "SAP Red" or "SAP Signature Default")The SAP Signature color for systems (and/or clients in system) can also be changed via the SAPGUI Options dialog on the page Visual Design → Colors In System (if SAP Signature Theme isselected in the Theme combobox). The SAP GUI Options dialog saves the settings under the sameregistry keys and values, but under HKEY_CURRENT_USER. The HKEY_CURRENT_USERregistry values have a higher priority than the registry values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.The registry key and values under[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearanceSystems]are copied at startup of SAP Logon (SAP GUI) from HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE toHKEY_CURRENT_USER without overwritting existing values.5.3 System-Specific SAP Signature Color Settings (SystemProfile Parameter)As of SAP GUI 7.30, a SAP Signature color can be defined in the SAP system via the systemprofile parameter sapgui/signature_color.Note 1640960 describes this system parameter and how to set it. This note must be part of thekernel in order to support this feature.There are several ways to overwrite a SAP Signature color which is definied by the SAP systemparameter with a local configuration: You can ignore the SAP Signature color definied by the SAP system parameter for allsystems, if you create the following registry value:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearance][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearance](on 64-Bit OS)"SignatureSystemDependentColorsActive" [REG_DWORD] = 0The setting can also be changed via the SAP GUI Options dialog on page Visual Design→Color Settings. The checkbox Accept default color by SAP system enables/disables theapplication of the SAP Signature color definied by the SAP system. The SAP GUI Optionsdialog saves the setting under the same registry key and value but underHKEY_CURRENT_USER. The HKEY_CURRENT_USER registry values have a higherpriority than the registry values under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE. You can ignore the SAP Signature color definied by the SAP system parameter for onlysome specific SAP systems or clients in a SAP system. This can be achieved if onedefines another SAP Signature color for this SAP system or client locally on the machinelike this is described in section System and Client-Specific SAP Signature Color Settings(Options Dialog) of this guide.
  18. 18. Registry Values and Read-Only Feature of SAP GUI Options DialogPriority of the Different SAP Signature Color Configurations18 May, 20125.4 Priority of the Different SAP Signature Color ConfigurationsFor SAP Logon, only the locally definied default color is used as described in section SAP GUIDefault Color for SAP Signature Design of this guide.For a SAP GUI session, several settings will be checked:1. First of all, the locally definied SAP Signature color for the specific client in a specificSAP system will be checked and applied (see section System and Client-Specific SAPSignature Color Settings (Options Dialog).2. If the client setting is not definied, the locally definied SAP Signature color for the specificSAP system will be checked and applied (see section System and Client-Specific SAPSignature Color Settings (Options Dialog).3. If this is also not defined and the default color definied by a SAP system is set to beaccepted (otherwise this step will be ommited), the SAP Signature color definied by theSAP system will be checked and applied (see section System-Specific SAP SignatureColor Settings (System Profile Parameter).4. If the profile parameter is not set, the locally definied SAP GUI default color will bechecked and applied (see section SAP GUI Default Color for SAP Signature Design).5. If the SAP GUI default color is not definied, SAP GUI session will be show in the SAPSignature Default color.6 Registry Values and Read-Only Featureof SAP GUI Options DialogIn this chapter, the registry values are listed which are used to customize the behavior,appearance, and functionality of SAP GUI via the SAP GUI Options dialog.In addition, this chapter shows how to define default values for specific SAP GUI settings and howto deactivate some settings in the SAP GUI Options dialog. However, it does not describe thefunctionality behind the registry values. For this purpose, you have to refer to the SAP GUI enduser guide. For the security settings, refer to the Security Guide.With SAP GUI 7.30, the registry access has been harmonized. This means, for mostregistry values, SAP GUI will first access HKEY_CURRENT_USER and, if this registryvalue doesn’t exist, then HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE will be accessed.If under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE this registry value also does not exist, then the SAPGUI default value will be applied. In this document, only exceptions to this approach will bementioned.Registry keys for restricting specific settings in the SAP GUI Options dialog are onlylocated under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE.6.1 Read-Only Feature of the SAP GUI Options DialogAs of SAP GUI 7.30, it is possible to restrict the usage of the SAP GUI Options dialog by settingsome or all of its options read-only. Setting the options read-only in the UI does not change thereading priority of the registry values. When options have been set read-only, the user can nolonger change these settings via the SAP GUI Options dialog.
  19. 19. 6 Registry Values and Read-Only Feature of SAP GUI Options Dialog6.1 Read-Only Feature of the SAP GUI Options DialogMay, 2012 19There are three possibilities to set options in SAP GUI Options dialog read-only.1. Setting all options read-onlyTo set all options in the SAP GUI Options dialog read-only, create the following registryvalues:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneral][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneral] (32 Bit OS)"AllOptionsReadOnly" (REG_DWORD) = 1"CurRegValReadOnlyActive" (REG_DWORD) = 0Result: In the title bar of the SAP GUI Options dialog, the text “[read-only]” will be added.2. Setting most options read-only and exceptions changeableTo activate the feature that most options in the SAP GUI Options dialog should be read-only and only a few exceptions should remain changeable create the following registryvalues:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneral][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneral] (32 Bit OS)"AllOptionsReadOnly" (REG_DWORD) = 1"CurRegValReadOnlyActive" (REG_DWORD) = 1Result: In the title bar of the SAP GUI Options dialog, the text “[partly read-only]” will beadded and all options of the SAP GUI Options dialog are read-only. You can now makesome special options changeable again by using the following approach:1. You know the registry value name of the option, for example, “SelectedTheme”.2. You know the registry key where the registry value is located, for example,[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance].3. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, you now add “_ReadOnly” to the registry valuename, for example, “SelectedTheme_ReadOnly”, and create the REG_DWORDregistry value under the “same” registry key as the original registry key. Forexample: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance] (32Bit OS);[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEWow6432NodeSoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance]4. Set the “_ReadOnly” REG_DWORD registry value to 0, so that the optionbelonging to this registry value is again changeable in the SAP GUI Optionsdialog, for example “SelectedTheme_ReadOnly” (REG_DWORD)=0.3. Setting most options changeable and only some exceptions read-onlyTo activate the feature that most options in the SAP GUI Options dialog should remainchangeable and only a few exceptions should be read-only create the following registryvalues:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneral][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneral] (32 Bit OS)"AllOptionsReadOnly" (REG_DWORD) = 0"CurRegValReadOnlyActive" (REG_DWORD) = 1
  20. 20. Registry Values and Read-Only Feature of SAP GUI Options DialogRegistry Values Used in the SAP GUI Options Dialog20 May, 2012Result: In the title bar of the SAP GUI Options dialog, the text “[partly read-only]” will beadded and all options of the SAP GUI Options dialog remain editable.To make specific options read-only, proceed as follows:1. You know the registry value name of the option, for example “AnimatedFocus”.2. You know the registry key, where the registry value is located, for example,[HKEY_CURRENT_USERSoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance].3. Under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, you now add “_ReadOnly” to the registry valuename, for example, “AnimatedFocus_ReadOnly”, and create the REG_DWORDregistry value under the “same” registry key as the original registry key. Forexample:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance] (32 Bit OS);[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINEWow6432NodeSoftwareSAPGeneralAppearance]4. Set the “_ReadOnly” REG_DWORD registry value to 1, so that the optionbelonging to this registry value will be set read-only in the SAP GUI Options dialog,for example, “AnimatedFocus_ReadOnly” (REG_DWORD)=1.6.2 Registry Values Used in the SAP GUI Options DialogThe following sub-chapters describe the registry values that belong to settings in the SAP GUIOptions dialog.If nothing is written about a special handling for the read-only feature, then the particularoption can be separately set read-only as described above.6.2.1 Restore Defaults ButtonThe (de)activation of the Restore Defaults button in the SAP GUI Options screen requires specialhandling for the read-only feature:To set the button Restore Defaults read-only, create the following registry value:[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREWow6432NodeSAPGeneralAppearance][HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARESAPGeneralAppearance] (on 32 Bit OS)"RestoreDefaults_ReadOnly"
