Disable User Personalization in Web Dynpro Screen

Personalization and Customization

In the previous post we saw  how someone can personalize the Web Dynpro screen to hide and unhide screen UI elements or fields. After we recovered the hidden field, our business asked us, ‘Can we prevent the users from hiding the screen fields?In simple terms, business wanted to disable Personalization of Web Dynpro screens in portal.

The answer from an ABAPer: “Yes, we can handcuff them”. 🙂

We need to set parameter ‘WDDISABLEUSERPERSONALIZATION‘ to the Web Dynpro application.

Check, before activating the ‘Disable User Personalization’ parameter, user can personalize the screen. User Settings option is available to the users to play around.
