Suppose I would like to open SAP GUI transaction code SE80 in Chrome by clicking a tile in Fiori launchpad – for example I would like to put a new tile into this group below:

1. First identify the catalog page ID for the group above: SAP_FIORI_EXTENSIBILITY
2. Open Fiori Launchpad Designer, find the catalog found in previous step.
Create a new tile by clicking icon “+”:
Maintain the following parameters:
Once saved, the target URL will be automatically generated:
3. Create a new Target Mapping by clicking the button in footer toolbar:
For system alias, you can just keep it as initial:
Once saved, you should see a new entry in the list:
4. For the last step, just make the tile visible in UI. Click new button:
Find the new created tile and add it to Catalog group:
Now you should see the new tile in Launchpad.
Click this tile, and SE80 is now opened in Chrome:

How to open transaction in backend system instead

    Hi,
    I did exactly as mentioned in the above, but I get a 404 error as below. Any help would be appreciated.

    Service cannot be reached

    What has happened?

    URL call was terminated because the corresponding service is not available.

    Note
    The termination occurred in system with error code 403 and for the reason Forbidden.

    What can I do?

    Select a valid URL.

    HTTP 403 – Forbidden

      Hello,

      Please check in your backend system via tcode SICF with keyword WEBGUI:

      Choose “Test Service” from context menu.
      You should see the following UI which indicates the ITS is active in your backend system.


      Best regards,
      Jerry

        Hi Jerry,

        Thanks for providing a nice blog.

        I am trying to invoke ECC t.code VA01 from Fiori.  I provided all the steps given in this link.

        Provided System alias also in Catalog.

        But when i execute the app, it is not invoking VA01 from FLP.

        Its going to Gateway system screen and showing VA01 does not exist.

        System alias is correct and is working fine.

        Do any extra steps need to be taken care to invoke ECC T.Code?

        Appreciate your inputs on this.

        Thanks

    Hi folks

    Please note that in S/4HANA you should be using the NWBC service and not the ITS service for this… just look at any of the examples in the delivered tile catalogs.

    Rgds,
