    Hello Carolina,

    Many thanks for providing this very helpful documentation.

    I would like to ask you the following question?

    It is technically feasible to integrate in one single point of access on-premise applications and cloud applications?  E.g On-Premise Fiori applications deployed on the FES + Success Factors applications.

    If it is feasible which is the recommended approach?


    Many thanks in advance.

    yes you can do so.

    Fiori applications deployed on FES (onPrem) can be launched inplace within FLP on FES. Success Factors applications can be integrated via URL integration (deep linking) and then are opened in a new browser tab when clicking on the respective tile.

    You also can use  SAP Cloud Portal (FLP on SAP Cloud platform) to integrate Success Factors applications together with Fiori apps running on SAP Cloud platform and getting data from backend system (on-premise).

    From a strategic point of view it is recommended to bring the UI parts of the applications to the cloud, consuming business data from the backend.

    Kind regards.

      Hi Carola,

      On the same topic, FES (onPrem) + SF application via deep linking.

      Question on single sign on –

      As my understanding the recommended approach is to have SAP Enterprise Portal in the scope and use SAP EP as primary user database for single sign on and authentication.

      Question, can we use FES as primary user database and setup single sign-on to SF, so that when user launch SF application via URL Tile (deep link to SF), user does not get challenge by SF for re-authentication?

      Objective is to keep the solution scope minimal and lower application support effort as customer does not need EP level of theming, branding, content management and etc.

        yes, you can use FLP on FES (without EP) and set up single sign on with SF, so that there is no user re-authentication.

        SAP Enterprise Portal is not the recommended solution in general. It depends on the usage of EP so far and in future. As pure application launcher portal you also can use FLP on FES.

        kind regards.

          Thanks Carola, would it be possible for you to share some document how this is done?

          Can FLP on FES serve as identity provider or we need Single Sign On product to achieve this?
