Required Browser Settings

The following browser settings are applicable to your on-demand solution.

Downloads
Downloading files should be enabled in your browser since the SAP on-demand solution can export files to your PC. If your browser supports restricting downloads by file type, you should enable at least the XML and CSV file types.

If your browser supports trusted sites, we recommend maintaining the download settings only for the Trusted Sites security zone and adding the following URLs to this zone:


Pop-Ups
The pop-up blocker should either be disabled, or the system URL should be registered as an exceptional site for the pop-up blocker. The remark about Trusted Sites from the Downloads section applies here as well.

Advanced Internet Option Settings in Internet Explorer
If you use Internet Explorer, make the following advanced Internet option settings:

  • The browser should be configured to use HTTP 1.1, both for connections in general and for connections through a proxy.
  • The user interface of the on-demand solution may react more quickly if you disable the "Do not save encrypted pages to disk" setting.
