Hello guys!

So, 9.1 on HANA  is in general availability and with it there comes the new SAP Fiori Style Cockpit.

Just like most things we are seeing related to the HANA world. It is based on web standards that allows a lot of flexibility, rich UX and simple usage.


“So my customers may have a huge monitor with a lot of B1 indicators displaying that ANYWHERE???”

Yes, they can!

And that is pretty much the reason of this posts. I got several inquires of customers that want to have their dashboards on distinct screens of b1.

Some not even want to log on the ERP to have those indicators. So, here goes a (very) simple way to have them without clicking every time on the refresh button and using a web browser.

Check it out!

What is it?

A very simple solution that uses an HTML Iframe to display the Fiori Cockpit

What is it using?

For the UI  – Twitter Bootstrap

For the auto refresh – JavaScript

For the events and commands – jQuery

Where is it?

You can find the code on my gitHub repository with other samples.

And you the URL to your cockpit is
