SAP Web Dynpro - URL of an Application

In a Web Dynpro application, the URL is automatically generated. You can find the URL of an application in the Properties tab. The URL structure can be of two types −

  • SAP namespace

<schema>://<host>.<domain>.<extension>:<port>/sap/bc/webdynpro/<namespace>/<application name>
  • Custom namespace
<schema>://<host>.<domain>.<extension>:<port>/abc/klm/xyz/<namespace>/webdynpro/<application name>
<schema>://<host>.<domain>.<extension>:<port>/namespace>/webdynpro/<application name>


<schema> − Defines the protocol to access application http/https

<host> − Defines the name of the application server

<domain><extension> − Defines several hosts under a common name

<port> − It can be omitted if the standard port 80 (http) or 443 (https) is used

You should specify Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) in Web Dynpro application URL.

You also need to check the path details in the field URL. It should contain the full domain and host name.
