SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library

SAP Fiori is foremost a collection of apps representing the new user experience of SAP and the face of SAP S/4HANA. SAP Fiori apps can be categorized by line of business, industry, and most important user role, as well as technical foundation.

All available apps can be explored using the SAP Fiori apps reference library. See https://www.sap.com/fiori-apps-library.

How to Filter Apps in SAP Fiori Apps Reference Library

Getting detailed information on one of the thousands of SAP Fiori apps is the main goal of the SAP Fiori apps reference library. Let's look at how to filter apps in SAP Fiori apps reference library.

How to Find Apps via App ID

You can also find documentation for apps via app ID from the SAP Fiori apps reference library.

Hint
The App ID of a transaction is its transaction code.

Let's look at details required for an SAP Fiori app.

In the details for an SAP Fiori app, you should first set the product suite followed by the release at the top of the page. Although an app is available in several products and releases, the implementation may differ between these. The header information, product features, implementation information, and related apps change depending on the selected product and release.

This is an example of an overview page. It is based on SAP Fiori elements technology and uses annotated views of app data. Thus, the app content can be tailored to the domain or role.

The overview page acts as a UI framework for organizing multiple cards on a single page. Each card can deliver transactional, analytical, or search data. Therefore overview pages are often a mixture of application types.

SAP Fiori App Analyses

The SAP Fiori apps reference library offers additional features when signing-in with an SAP user. For example, you can save filters and selections or navigate to related resources like the Maintenance Planer. In addition, you can:

  • Identify the impact an upgrade will have on SAP Fiori apps
  • Get recommendations for SAP Fiori apps

by analyzing the usage of an existing system landscape.

SAP Fiori App Recommendations Analysis

The SAP Fiori App Recommendations analysis can be started on the main page by choosing Get SAP Fiori App Recommendations. It needs a usage and system profiles as input:

Usage Profile
A usage profile is a list of the most used transactions in a system. These can be collected based on end-user feedback or by tracing the used transactions in the system, for example, through the Workload Monitor (ST03).
System Profile
A system profile is a list of installed software components in an SAP system. These can be collected using the system information of a system or functions of the SAP Solution Manager, for example, the Landscape Management Database (LMDB).

The analysis results in a table of apps with information about their relevance and system requirements depending on the usage and system profiles. The table can be filtered in many ways, for example, by application types, line of business, or roles. Views can be created to save changes to the layout of the table. The following views are predefined:

  • Overview
  • Installation Details
  • Fiori Launchpad Content
  • Configuration Details

Details of each app can be accessed by just clicking on one entry in the table or you can switch from the list view to the detail view, which jumps to a filtered view of the SAP Fiori apps reference library.
