      Thanks for the document, Ramesh! In my Fiori target mapping, I don't see application id, transaction etc, instead I see 2 radio buttons. What SP are you on?

      Ramesh Prasad, very useful document as well as the guide to make an Abap program running in fiori. We are currently facing up a big trouble trying to run a program which contains tree tables and due to big amount of data it is not displaying properly when you launch the transcation in Fiori unless you call a specific value:

      but if you run the program thru S/4 HANA it shows the info properly:

      Is anything I need to fix in Fiori or Abap in order to make it run?

      Thanks in advance for your valuable help.

      Very good blog. Would this also work on Central Hub Net weaver systems (or) just limited to S/4  systems ? For the custom transactions; isn't this slower in terms of execution?

      Hello Ramesh Prasad,

      Every time whenever I execute an ALV report in a Fiori Launchpad it shows this error that

      "The session has been finished.
      You can close the window."

      and navigating back to the home page of Fiori launchpad is there any solution for this type of errors?
