We covered in detail Fiori for S/4HANA – Fundamentals during Blog 1, let us now prepare to implementing SAP Fiori.

As a general recommendation, when planning a Fiori for S/4HANA Project in versions 1809 or higher you will need to become familiar with the available documentation and recommended SAP Fiori activation procedure: Rapid Content Activation

Relevant notes/considerations:

  • For S/4HANA versions 1709 or lower you can continue to use Best Practices for SAP Fiori, you will find links to these documents in the Legacy Configuration Guides section of this blog, however with S/4HANA version 1809 or higher the recommended activation procedure requires the usage of Fiori Rapid Content Activation and an Embedded SAP Fiori Deployment
  • If you are planning to move from a Standalone to Embedded Fiori Deployment you will find a step-by-step document in the following blog.

Guide Glossary:

  • UI Technology Guides
    • High level information related to configuration steps needed to setup Fiori infrastructure and post conversion activities.
  • Administration Guides
    • Use Administration guide for new installations (greenfield) with Best Practices relying on the MA… guides for specific configuration steps.
  • Configuration Guides

Legacy Configuration Guides

NOTE – You may still refer to the configuration guides with S/4HANA 1709 or lower, however, starting with 1809 rapid activation using task lists is preferred as described in note 2704570, following the architecture recommendation for embedded deployments in S/4HANA.

  1. Use Administration guide for new installations (greenfield) with Best Practices relying on SAP Fiori Rapid Activation for activation of Fiori Launchpad and Fiori Apps.
  2. Use Technology Guide for post conversion activities relying on SAP Fiori Rapid Activation for activation of Fiori Launchpad and Fiori Apps.
  3. For troubleshooting, always consider reviewing the steps outlined in the Troubleshooting Tips and Tricks document as a first step to identify and solve issues with Fiori Apps .
