With over 1K Fiori apps now available for SAP S/4HANA, as a technical support person being able to identify the technical name of an app is essential to quickly resolving user issues.  Especially if you need to check for related SAP Notes on the SAP Support Launchpad  .

From SAP S/4HANA 1709 (SAPUI5 1.52) there is new Fiori Launchpad feature to help – and it’s all out of the box. It’s called the About icon and this is how you use it.

From the business user’s home page, navigate to a specific app. In the example below you can see Clear Incoming Payments. Now all you need to do is open the Me Area.

 

IMPORTANT: Regardless of whether the app is a Fiori app, a WDA app or a SAPGUI app you should see the About icon button in the Me Area.

Press the About icon.

You will then see a dialog window that shows the technical details of the app for support purposes.  In the dialog window you will see the technical name, version, and app id as well as exact version of the SAPUI5 being used and your web browser version details.

For a Fiori app the dialog window will look something like this:

 

This same approach works for Web Dynpro ABAP apps, which look something like this:

And even it even works for SAP GUI transactions and looks something like this:

So what do you do with the technical name once you have found it?

You can search by the technical name in the Fiori Apps Library.

And for Fiori apps you can also search by App id.

This even works for the technical name of a Web Dynpro ABAP app or SAP GUI transaction.

You can also search by the technical name (or app id) in the SAP Support Launchpad.

 

TIP: For embedded analytics Smart Business tiles you will notice the technical name is the same regardless of which tile you choose. That’s because technically they are all the same Fiori app – just with different configuration details.  Just look for your KPI by name in the Fiori app KPI Workspace to find the matching configuration details.

    Thanks for this. As far as my experience with customers, they would always want to search with SAP transaction code. I see when you export the Fiori app list using excel download, in the App ID for some apps we have the t-code of SAP, and some have the normal APP IDs as per SAP’s own serial no. or naming convention. say as used by you F0773.

    I believe we should have one proper column for transaction code of SAP because when we do requirement phase with the customer, they lack the knowledge of Fiori and finding apps goes difficult sometimes, when a Fiori person lacks certain SAP functions.

      Hi Tejas,

      Yes you can search by Transaction Code when searching in Fiori Apps Library the filter All Apps, or All Apps for SAP S/4HANA.   This will find the related Transaction code if it has been confirmed as suitable content for the Fiori Launchpad, i.e. the Fiori Visual Theme can be applied automatically.

      You cannot search for Fiori apps by transaction code as there is not a 1-to-1 relationship as I explained in Fiori for S/4HANA – Top 10 Myths and Misconceptions  That’s also why we have the Fiori Apps Recommendation report link on the Fiori Apps Library Homepage  to help customers understand which apps they should be looking at based on their current transaction usage.

      As a business user, you can also use the Fiori Search bar in your Fiori Launchpad to search by transaction code.  You can also use the Easy Access Menu or SAP Menu catalogs in the App Finder, providing your administrator has activated these.

      Of course, a lot of SAP S/4HANA customers are net new customers – so the old GUI transaction codes don’t mean much to them anyway.

        Thanks I used the recommendation report link. This is helpful but if we don’t have a csv file and want to manually select the transactions from step 2 or 3. Don’t see any option to select the transaction which appears in the drop down.

        For now I checked the export of FAL and able to see transaction code column, so it’s good for now.

        Regards,
        Tejas 🙂

          Hi Tejas

          You can use the Sample CSV file provided as part of the Fiori Apps Recommendation report wizard to get the template. Use the template to enter the list of transaction codes you want in Excel, and then upload it again to run the recommendations. I’ve done that before now and that works fine.
