Get data of Fiori Apps Library in a simple SAP UI5 Application
This post describes how to get the data displayed on Fiori Apps Library page into an SAP UI5 application.
I have made the application using SAP Web IDE but you can also use Eclipse if you are familiar with that.
The key point behind this application is that “Fiori App Library is itself a Fiori-like App and hence must be using an OData Service“. All we need is to find the OData service behind the Fiori App Library and use that in our UI5 application.
So first we find the OData service. Just open Fiori Apps Library on google chrome and after it loads open the console by pressing F12 (Or you can right click anywhere on the page and select Inspect ).
Now click on ‘Network’ tab and Reload the page. Look for network calls in the Network tab
Filter out ‘metadata’ from all the calls and open it in a new tab. This is a procedure which I use to get the OData Service behind any SAP UI5 or Fiori Application.
This is the OData Service used by the Fiori App Library.
The people who are familiar with binding of OData Service To an SAP UI5 app would now be able to bind this service to their apps and use the data returned by it. 🙂
In Part 2 of this blog I will describe how to use this OData service in an SAP UI5 app using SAP Web IDE.
