Part 2: Discover, Explore and Consume SAP S/4HANA Cloud APIs in SAP API Business Hub

SAP S/4HANA SAP API Business Hub is the central catalog of all SAP and partner APIs for developers to build sample apps, extensions and open integrations with SAP.  In this blog, we would show case the discovery, exploration and consumption of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud APIs to build a Fiori Application.

In the part 1 of the blog series the Discover, Explore and Testing of the SAP S/4HANA Cloud APIs (Read Planned Orders) was captured and this part the consumption of the Read Planned Orders API in a Fiori application is showcased.

Build Fiori application using S/4HANA Cloud APIs

SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE is a powerful, web-based integrated development tool that simplifies end-to-end application development and enables developers to quickly discover APIs from SAP API Business Hub to generate Fiori applications.

Once the Read Planned Orders API has been explored and tested from SAP API Business Hub, we can consume this API to build a Fiori application in SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE.

SAP API Business Hub integration is only available in SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE Full-Stack.



  • Click on link Go to Service to open  SAP Cloud Platform Web IDE.


  • Click on the New Project from Template under the Create a Project group to create a new Fiori project.

    • Hi Kumar  Gaurav

      This issue is related to the newest version of the template Innovation 1.50. I know SAP is working on it. Till then the workaround could be to use the second latest version. Use version 1.44 and you should be fine.
