SAP Fiori Lessons Learned 04.

Make sure the backend applications are running before implementation



SAP Fiori apps provide UI and OData connectivity to SAP Business Suite backend.

Backend applications should be up and running. It is the must requirement.


Lessons Learned:

Check the backend applications before implementing SAP Fiori apps.


For example, you are going to implement “My Travel Request”.

1. Logon to ERP with specific user and call transaction “TRIP”. Create a travel request.

2. Note down the user ID and document ID


If the backend application is not running or not configured, you should not start SAP Fiori configuration.

Configuration for SAP Fiori app itself is not big effort but defining master data and configuring backend applications are big effort.

You need traditional domain knowledge for configuring HCM, SD, MM, FI/CO and SRM.

    One specific example is the ‘My Shopping Cart’ App.  This uses the ‘search catalog’ function of SRM.  The customer must have search catalog enabled and running before the My Shopping Cart app will work.
