The SAP Fiori launchpad (FLP) has many configuration options. There are several basic configurations and also advanced configurations needing other additional technical settings elsewhere. The configurations depend on the release of the software component SAP_UI. There are three approaches to configure the FLP:

SAP Fiori Launchpad Configuration via Custom Catalog
Target mappings for configuring the FLP can be created in any catalog. However, it is recommended that you use a separate one without any tiles or target mappings for apps. The semantic object for the FLP is Shell, followed by an action depending on the FLP part. The action bootConfig is meant for general for settings for the FLP. The application type is SAPUI5 Fiori App, followed by a component ID for the technical component. The settings themselves are created using parameters of the target mapping and depend on the system release.
FLP Configuration for Disabling Personalization
For some configuration areas, SAP delivers predefined catalogs that already consist of target mappings with parameters. These catalogs can be assigned directly to roles to enable a certain feature set, or they can be copied in the customer namespace to change the default values to meet someone's needs.
For example, assigning the /UI2/CONFIG_PERS_OFF catalog to a role deactivates the personalization options of the FLP for all users assigned to the role. Only accessibility features are still possible and the My Home page in spaces can still be changed. But there is no access anymore to the app finder.
