One of the most common questions we receive from customers as part of the S/4HANA RIG team is how to Modify Currencies in Standard Fiori Launchpad KPI tiles.

Standard delivery of KPI tiles configuration shows currencies in EURO, if you are working in an implementation project where currencies are different than EURO you will need to modify the KPI tiles to show the currency you need.

You can find the required steps to perform this changes in the following document:

Step-by-step guide to modify currencies in standard KPI tiles

Consider that as a development best-practice you will need to create copies of the KPI’s which you will later modify to suit your needs.

Once you have modified your KPI and displayed it in your Launchpad you may face issues assigning authorization objects to end-users. This is a common problem as developers are usually assigned full authorizations in the backend system.

In the following table, you will find the most used backend authorization objects required by KPI tiles

Authorization Object Authorization Field Value
S_RS_AUTH BIAUTH 0BI_ALL
S_RS_COMP ACTVT Defined by Security Admin
  RSINFOAREA Defined by Security Admin
  RSINFOCUBE Defined by Security Admin
  RSZCOMPID Defined by Security Admin
  RSZCOMPTP Defined by Security Admin
S_RS_COMP1 ACTVT Defined by Security Admin
  RSZCOMPID Defined by Security Admin
  RSZCOMPTP Defined by Security Admin
  RSZOWNER Defined by Security Admin
S_RS_RSTT ACTVT Defined by Security Admin

    Hi, Jorge.

    I’m following up Step-by-step guide to modify currencies in standard KPI tiles but y have this error:
    /SSB/CORE/ – 302 = Evaluation E.1490790264178 not saved; cannot find related indicator
    What do I have to do?

    References:
    With Namespace = ‘C’, in query to Source DDL “/SSB/DESIGNTIME_INDICATORS”, not exist, but exit in S (SAP) namespace a record.

      Hi Edwar,

      Looks like there was a problem while copying and saving the evaluation. First, make sure there are no authorization errors in the frontend server usign tx:SU53; second, try copying the evaluation again, after successfully copying the evaluation refresh the web page clearing browser cache and confirm that the evaluation exists.

      Regards,

        Hi, Jorge.

        Thank you for response.

        But, SU53 is clean.

        I test again, changing to internet explorer, before I used Chrome,  but error persist 

         

        What do I have to do, to save a record with Namespace ‘C’ ???

          Hi Edwar,

          I was able to solve the issue by copying the KPI along with all of it’s evaluations into a new KPI and then changing the currency in the new KPI’s evaluation.

          Best,

          Aashrith.

    Hi Jorge.

     

    I followed the steps mentioned in the document. But the customizing request does not contain newly create evaluations. Any idea what could be the reason. How should i transport the evaluations to client-200 ?

     

    My system landscape

    client/100 – Front End Server

    client/200 – Backend Server

     

    Thanks.

    Hi Jorge

    Thanks for the nice article.

    We were able to modify the currencies using the step by guide. We have couple of follow up questions on that, could you please let us know how to handle them

    1. Our business runs in multiple countries and we need the app running for each local currencies. Instead of creating separate evaluation & tiles for each country, can we have a single app satisfy that?
    2. Also each KPI has some associated header KPI. We would like to see each of the associated KPI to be in the same local currency as the primary KPI. As an example, we have created a localized copy of Purchase Order value in CAD currency. The associated KPIs like Off-Contract spend, Contract Leakage are in EUR. How can we change this mapping to have the CAD currencies version of these associated apps?

      Hi Saubhagya,

      Unfortunately I am not aware of any workaround, you would need to create as many copies of the evaluation as needed, both for the “main” and “associated” KPI’s.

    Hello Jorge, I came here from this other related blog: https://blogs.sap.com/2016/12/14/leading-s4hana-ux-adapting-analytical-tiles-and-overview-pages/

    But I’m asking here since this one is most recent.

    I’m in HANA 1511.

    I’ve been following the guide with no problems and I’m at the last step of adding the new tile from the catalog (step 4.2 in the PDF document). However I’m not able to see my new tile. I thought it was a problem with the chosen catalog in the new tile (should it be the Technical catalog as it is shown when displaying the standard tile in the KPI Workspace? or the Business catalog as it is shown when adding the standard tile in personalization?). But in either case mine is not shown.

    Could it be a catalog cache not refreshing or some similar issue? Do I have a way to force a refresh?

    Many thanks!
