Backoffice Deep Linking Support

Since 2211.8, the Backoffice deep linking support is provided to enable users to navigate seamlessly to specific resources within the Backoffice environment. This enhancement introduces three types of deep linking functionality, including:

  • perspective navigation:

    e.g.: https://mycompany.com/backoffice/#sapnavigate?perspective=pcmbackoffice navigate to the product cockpit of Backoffice. More ids of the default perspectives can be found in the documentation.

  • explorer tree page navigation:

    e.g.: https://mycompany.com/backoffice/#sapnavigate?perspective=hmc2&tree_node=hmc_typenode_catalog navigates to the catalog node of the administration cockpit.

  • the ability to open a specific item directly:
    • e.g.:https://mycompany.com/backoffice/#sapopen?type=Product&code=779848&catalog=electronicsProductCatalog... opens the product with the specified code and catalog version.

    • only a list of predefined types are supported out-of-the-box.

    • It's possible to provide deep link configuration for further types, by configuring a mapping between the URL parameters and the attributes in Commerce types in the Backoffice configuration (*backoffice-config.xml)
