Disclosure Management – Fiori Apps

Since DM 10.1 SP07, by default the application server will also install a new website with Fiori apps.

Just browse to http://[server:port]/Areas/FLP/Content/Login.aspx and you should see the following page

Note: you can use Chrome to access this site.

After logging in (same user/pwd as the main DM website) you will see the available Fiori apps

The “App Manager” will allow you to add new Fiori apps as they are being delivered (note: each SP release new apps are scheduled to be introduced)

The Approval Inbox allows to approve/reject reports and ties in with the workflow operations in DM

The report can be approved or rejected.

Whatever is selected, will also show in DM

Finally, there are some personal preferences you can set (language, themes etc.)

For more information see section “5 SAP Fiori Apps for SAP Disclosure Management” of the DM User Guide

      Hello Marc,

      we updated now to version DIS AS 10.1.8.136 and tried again to reach the fiori app. If we use this url http://<host:port>/Areas/FLP/Content/login.aspx we just get the normal start page but no fiori apps.

      We also followed all instructions from Administration Guide under Setting Up SAP Fiori for SAP Disclosure Management.

      Some of the documentations seem to be not complete.

      How can we start the Fiori Apps?

      Best regards

      Thomas

      Hello Thomas,

      I have just updated the ticket you opened with new information on SP08 as follows:

      1. DM Fiori Launchpad: Windows AD & SAML Authentication:
      2. When a deactivated user with authentication type “SAML” tries to log on, the error message “401 error Unauthorized” is shown.
      3. When a deactivated user with authentication type “Active Directory” tries to log on, the error message “Authentication failed: null” is shown.
      4. The expected message in both cases would be “The provided credentials are not associated with an active user. Contact your administrator.”
      5. SAML authentication in DM's Fiori Launchpad is currently limited to Google Chrome and Microsoft Edge. In Microsoft Internet Explorer, a browser-specific redirection problem causes SAML logon attempts fail. For more information from the browser vendor, Microsoft, see https://connect.microsoft.com/IE/feedback/details/1925265/document-write-leads-sec7111-https-security-is-compromised-by-null-error-in-ie11-doc-mode-9-11-for-all-https-pages.

        As an intermediate way to make SAML logon work, you can set the browsers Document Mode to "IE8" but note that visual UI issues may occur in DM's Fiori Launchpad.

      Regards

      Folu

      Hello Thomas,

       

      I wrote this blog after SP07 and it seems in SP08 some things changed. There is a need for a certificate, and  there is now, indeed, a .html page

       

      Could you try this:

      • use Chrome
      • on the server, directly browse to http://localhost/Areas/FLP/Content/Login.aspx

      Do you see this login screen?

       

       

      The 2 login pages are completely different paths, the normal DM login is at

      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\login.aspx

      The Fiori is at
      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\Areas\FLP\Content\login.aspx

       

      You can see (just open the .aspx in notepad) that it references things like :

      .sapUiBody { filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.AlphaImageLoader(src="./Images/login_background_ie8.jpg",sizingMethod='scale'); }

      ...which is the new image you see on the login

       

      If this doesn't work, I assume there is some re-direct to the default 'login.html' happening on your system

      One thing I forgot to ask - but I simply assumed. You are on SP06 or higher, right? (you mention 10.1.8.136 so I think this will be fine)

       

      You should see (in IIS), the folders for Fiori

       

      If this is not correct, check the Install logs, they are on:
      C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\Logs\Install Log\Install_10_1_8_134.log

       

      Search for FLP, you should see entries like below (where files are being copied)

      MSI (s) (4C:4C) [11:03:13:585]: Executing op: SetTargetFolder(Folder=C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\Areas\FLP\)

      Hi Marc,

      yes we came from SP06 to SP08 (10.1.8.136). We create the certificate already on behalf of a SAP note.

      “The Fiori is at C:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\Areas\FLP\Content\login.aspx”

      In our system the Fiori is at D:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\bin\Areas\FLP\Content

      D:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\Logs\Install Log\Install_10_1_8_136.log


      MSI (s) (10:94) [14:46:48:441]: Executing op: SetTargetFolder(Folder=D:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\bin\Areas\FLP\)
      MSI (s) (10:94) [14:46:48:441]: Executing op: SetSourceFolder(Folder=1\IISRoo~1\SAP\SAPDIS~1\Areas\FLP\|IISRootFolder\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\Areas\FLP\)
      MSI (s) (10:94) [14:46:48:441]: Executing op: FileCopy(SourceName=RESOUR~1.ZIP|resources.zip,SourceCabKey=resources.zip,DestName=resources.zip,Attributes=16384,FileSize=163681297,PerTick=65536,,VerifyMedia=1,,,,,CheckCRC=0,Version=65535.0.0.0,,InstallMode=126091264,,,,,,,)
      MSI (s) (10:94) [14:46:48:441]: File: D:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\bin\Areas\FLP\resources.zip;    Overwrite;    Won’t patch;    New file versioned – existing file unversioned
      MSI (s) (10:94) [14:46:48:441]: Source for file ‘resources.zip’ is compressed
      InstallFiles: File: resources.zip,  Directory: D:\inetpub\wwwroot\SAP\SAP Disclosure Management\bin\Areas\FLP\,  Size: 163681297

      So it seems at least the Source of the login page is wrong or different.

      Best regards

      Thomas

      Hi Thomas,

       

      Strange, never seen this. Did you install with the install packages (msi) or did you run it from the command prompt (as outlined in note  1824606)

       

      Does the page actually work, so if you browse http://<host:port>/bin/Areas/FLP/Content/login.aspx (with Chrome) does the login page show?

      Hi Marc,

      we just execute as described one by one from the DIS server and all parameter SAP Standard:
      (We only changed local disk from C: to D:)

      1. DMAPPLSERV07_0-70000096.EXE
      2. DMAPPLSERV07P_1-70000096.EXE
      3. DMAPPLSERV08_0-70000096.EXE
      4. DMAPPLSERV08P_1-70000096.EXE

      With http://blnvir8032/bin/Areas/FLP/Content/Login.aspx and Chrome we get "404 - File or directory not found"

      If we adjust the web.config <location path="Areas/Apps"> and <location path="Areas/FLP"> to <location path="bin/Areas/Apps"> and <location path="bin/Areas/FLP"> there is for few seconds a message (ERR_TOO_MANY_REDIRECTS) and we'll be redirected to the standard start page.

      and in protokoll there is an error message:

      2017-01-23 16:17:25.1713 [44] [ERROR] ==>
      -------- Begin --------
      ErrorID: e9d90d34-c452-4593-98cb-0ffe906d45a5
      Message: The file '/Areas/FLP/Content/Login.aspx' does not exist.
      -------- End --------

      2017-01-23 16:17:25.2024 [28] [INFO] ==> Session start
      2017-01-23 16:17:25.2493 [28] [INFO] ==> Session started

      Of course the file '/Areas/FLP/Content/Login.aspx' does not exist.
      Our file is in 'bin/Areas/FLP/Content/Login.aspx'.

      I guess there is a mismatch in configuration.

      Hi Thomas

      Yes - seems the installation has not worked correctly, and files have gone to incorrect folder(s)

      I am not sure how that can happen - but I would suggest a re-install, as moving files and changing web.config may get too complicated

      Hi Marc,

      if we reinstall the DM the results will be the same.
      We opened already a message (30927 / 2017 SAP-Fiori-Apps für SAP Disclosure Management).

      We add all install logs we got.
