SAP Fiori Reference Applications in the developer edition
As of Netweaver 7.40 SP10 developers can have access to the full stack of the SAP Fiori Reference Apps. The backend now includes all parts needed to run two SAP Fiori Reference Apps end-to-end. For details on how to get access to the SP10 system please refere to this document.
The apps are the Shop App and the Approve Purchase Orders App. For details about the scope of these apps here are some more details. (Note: the Manage Products App is currently not supported because the OData service is not part of SP10)
To access the ABAP Backend please login to the system with the details in this document
User Menue for the developer
We have created a user-specific menue for your convenience. This includes four tasks you can do
1. Data Creation
With this backend in place you do not use mockdata but read data instead stored in the system. To refresh data from time to time you can use the Data Creation tool. the procedure will drop all existing data and generate a fresh set of products etc.
The generation tool comes with two options:
1.1. Currency Code
The use cases of the apps are dealing with purchase of products where values are mostly currency related. You can generate all values with your local currency if you want. The default currency is USD.
1.2 Users to be added to ITelO
The user “developer” is already assigned to the company ITelO as an employee. If you want to use multiple users you can add one or more users to ITelO as employees. Please note that on data recreation the employees will not be removed.
2. SAP Fiori Launchpad
The apps are included in the Launchpad. By double-clicking the corresponding menue item the SAP Fiori Launchpad will open in a browser window. The launchpad shows both apps and you can discover how they work.
3. SAP Fiori Launchpad Designer
The Fiori Launchpad Designer allows you to change the Fiori Launchpad. As the Launchpad already includes both apps you don´t need to do anything with the Launchpad Designer at the moment but you can discover how a Fiori Launchpad can be defined.
4. Gateway Service Builder
The gateway service builder gives you access to the OData services used in both apps.
The services are called EPM_REF_APPS_PO_APV für the approve purchase order app and EPM_REF_APPS_SHOP for the shop app.
You can use the service builder to discover details of the services like
- Data Model including entity types, associations etc.
- service implementation
- runtime artefacts
- service maintenance
For further details how to best use the Gateway Service Builder please relate to the corresponding documentation. In order to use the services for these apps you don´t need to maintain anything in addition here.
