Connect SAP Fiori, cloud edition to your on-premise backend system

Inspired by Elizabeth Thorburn’s and Masayuki Sekihara’s excellent blog series Back-End Connectivity with SAP Fiori, cloud edition extended demo account, I want to connect my Fiori Cloud Demo account, to my ERP backend system.

For this I chose the My Inbox Fiori app as Elizabeth and Masayuki did. To start with, I check the Fiori Apps Library to verify that the My Inbox app for SAP Business Suite is in fact available via SAP Fiori Cloud, which of course it is:

However, I also get the Implementation Details from it, especially the back-end component I must install into my ERP system:

As well as the Back-End Authorization Role (PFCG):

With this information, I select the required software components from the Software Marketplace:

I download them with the SAP Download Manager, unpack them with SAPCAR and Upload the Packages from the File System:

And install them with SAINT:

Including all the Support Packages:

Which finishes successfully:

In transaction /IWFND/MAINT_SERVICE I Add the Service:

And in transaction PFCG I create a new Single Role based on Template /IWPGW/RT_WF_USER as per the information I gathered from the Fiori Apps Library:

Finally I add my TADIR Service to the Role:

Next I connect my SAP HANA Cloud Connector to my Fiori Cloud Demo account:

And allow access to the Backend Data Provider:

To access my backend system from SAP Fiori, cloud edition I Configure Destination iwbep in the OData Provisioning Demo Service:

And a Destination to my OData Provisioning Service Demo Service:

With this Destination, I configure the My Inbox crossfndfioriinbox Subscription:

Thus, I see the one task that I have in My Inbox:

Much nicer of course, but from the content exactly as in the Business Workplace:

And since in the cloud, easily accessible from my phone:

While this is just one example, all the other Fiori Cloud apps work basically the same.

      Hallo Frank,


      vielen Dank für deine Anleitung.


      Wir haben die Anleitung befolgt aber wir bekommen einfach keine Daten in die MyInbox App. Wir haben einen Verifikationsworkflow gestartet und sehen diesen über die Transaktion "SBWP", leider aber nicht in der MyInbox App.


      Hast du eine Ahnung woran das liegen könnte? Was können wir noch alles überprüfen?


      Beste Grüße
