PRC_OVPS1 – Overview Page

MM_PCTR_ST_MTS1 – Managing Purchasing Contracts

MM_PURDOC_LSTS1 – My Purchase Document Items

SLC_ACTS1 – Manage Activities

MM_REQNS1 – Purchase Requisition Object Page

MM_REUSE_TEXTS1 – Re-usable component for displaying texts

SBRT_APPSS1 – Smart Business Runtime

These SAPUI5 application can be activated manually through SICF transaction. But since manually activating then would be a time consuming activity, you can instead leverage the standard task list SAP_BASIS_ACTIVATE_ICF_NODES to activate all of them in one shot. Below are the steps.

    Nice work.

    Does anybody know if it’s possible to maintain the OVP by selecting only the cards that are applicable to the organisation. Yes, each user with access could tailor their OVP by hiding what they don’t use; I’m wondering if it’s possible to do this via config, on behalf of the user?

      I doubt if there is any config and if not, I am sure it will be nice feedback to SAP to implement that going forward for all their overview page Apps.

      For now, I am guessing that extending the SAPUI5 application for the overview page is the only option.

    A very well written step by step guide, thanks for detailing the UI5 and OData services for the associated apps in the overview page.
