General

This blog post is intended for system administrators who would like to set up an SAP Mobile Documents folder as a tile in SAP Fiori Launchpad (FLP) on cloud.

Prerequisites

  • You have an SAP Hana Cloud Platform (HCP) account.
  • You are subscribed to SAP Cloud Portal, and you are assigned to the role ‘TENANT_ADMIN’ for this java subscription.
  • You are subscribed to SAP Mobile Documents (MDocs), and you are assigned to the role ‘Administrator’ for this java subscription. Other users should be assigned to the ‘User role’.

One-time setup

  1. Create a corporate folder (if you have one, you can use it and skip this step):
    1. Login to the admin page of your MDocs application – https://<mdocsapp>-<account>.hana.ondemand.com/mcm/admin/
    2. Navigate to ‘Repositories’ -> ‘Corporate Content’
    3. Create a new repository
  2. Define your FLP URL in the trusted domains:
    1. In the MDocs admin screen, navigate to ‘Settings’ -> ‘Web Client’
    2. Under ‘Additional Settings’ add your FLP URL to the ‘Allowed Parent Domains for Integration’. The URL should look like: <flpapp>-<account>.dispatcher.hana.ondemand.com
    3. Click save.

Create a shared folder

  1. Open your MDocs browser: https://<mdocsapp>-<account>.hana.ondemand.com/mcm/browser/
  2. Navigate to the Corporate section and into the repository you created.
  3. Create the folder you would like to share.
  4. Press on the ‘i’ icon of the folder and copy the value of its ‘Web Link for Users’.

Create an Mdocs tile in FLP

  1. Open your SAP Fiori configuration cockpit (FCC) – https://<flpapp>-<account>.dispatcher.hana.ondemand.com/sap/hana/uis/clients/ushell-app/shells/fiori/FioriLaunchpad.html?mode=admin
  2. Navigate to ‘Create App Tile’ and follow the wizard to create a new application and tile:
    1. Give your app a name and optional description.
    2. In the Navigation step, set ‘App Type’ to be ‘SAP Mobile Documents’.
    3. Paste the folder URL you copied in the previous section in ‘Folder URL’.
    4. In the Tile step, choose your tile type.
    5. In the Assignments step, assign the tile to the desired content packages, groups and categories.
    6. Click Finish.
  3. Preview your site by clicking the ’Preview Site’ tile in the FCC.
  4. Make sure you see the tile you just created in the catalog or the home page (according to your assignment).
  5. Click on the tile and see your folder content.

Test in runtime

  1. Preview your site by clicking the ’Preview Site’ tile in the FCC.
  2. Make sure you see the tile you just created in the catalog or the home page (according to your assignment).
  3. Click on the tile and see your folder content.

    Great post. How can I get an Mdocs account with Admin privileges on it? With the trial account I register fro from the HCP Cockpit, I don’t see any Administation link. Thanks.

      Hi, thanks 🙂

      If you’re an account administrator in HCP cockpit, add yourself to the the role ‘Administrator’ on the MDocs subscription (under ‘Subscriptions’ -> the app -> ‘Roles’). then you should be able to get to the admin page by using the url mentioned above:

      https://<mdocsapp>-<account>.hana.ondemand.com/mcm/admin/


      HTH,

      Ido

          Hi Julien,

          SAP Mobile Documents is now integrated into the HCP Trial.

          In the cockpit, just go to Services – Mobile Documents – Enable.

          Regards,
          Jens

    Hello Ido / Jens,

    Can we use the “SAP Mobile Document” App Type FLP Tile to access HCP Document Services (without mobile document) as well ?  I would like to expose a folder in HCP Document Services to the end users to download files like specifications, drawings etc.

    Regards,

    Parag.
