Interaction Floorplan

The SAP Fiori interaction pyramid visualizes the connection between different layers of apps. The overall content scope becomes more focused with each interaction step. The FLP used as an entry point contains all of the favorite apps of a user. An overview page focuses on the domain-specific key tasks and contains only the most frequently used apps for a role. A pool of apps show the details and offer actions for certain business objects with object pages standing in the center of cross-app navigation.

Overview Page and Object Page

Let's have a quick look at the overview page (OVP) and the object page.

SAP Fiori Search

SAP Fiori offers a powerful search to find contents in the SAP Fiori launchpad (FLP). Using any database, you can search for text fragments of SAP Fiori tiles. However, when using SAP HANA, all business data of the back-end server (BES) can be searched quickly.

To access the SAP Fiori search, open the Search field at the top of the FLP, select a data area, and enter any value of a dataset in the BES. You may use the wildcard * as a placeholder.
