Resources on pre-requirements for Personas 3

Check your kernel release and patch level

Personas 3 heavily depends on SAP Kernel patch level. It`s not like this is to give you more work, Personas simply depends on core functionality that is part of the kernel. When something is fixed there, you have to update your kernel.

Transaction: SM51

Select Release Notes

  • I can see that my kernel is release 745 with patch level 15.

Implement required SAP Notes

As of writing this text, the required SAP Notes by Personas 3.0 SP2 are:

  • 1926394 – SAP GUI for HTML: Rendering mode update
  • 1995776 – ITS up/down: restgui dialogs instead of applet execution
  • 2016640 – Invalid GUI input data: display – window dimension conflict
  • 2076084 – Ghost Elements in SAP Screen Personas
  • 2148349 – SAP Screen Personas Call transaction variant
  • 1970427 – SAP GUI for HTML: Rendering problems in Enterprise Portal (EP)

None of the notes needed to be implement. Running a recently release NW version has its vantages.
