Yet another article to build List Report (SAP FIORI ELEMENT) .

Prerequisites: Make the below destination in hanatrial.


  1. Make a new Project from Template. Select “List Report Application“.

  2. Mention Project Name, Title, Namespace, Description”.

  3. Bind Northwind Data from “Service URL”. Click on Test to see if your data is coming properly.

  4. Leave Annotation Selection section blank.

  5. Mention below details in Template Customization.

  6. Click on Finish.

  7. Your application structure should be coming up as below.

  8. Make “annotations” folder in webapp.

  9. Right Click on “annotations” folder and Create “Annotation File”

  10. Select Annotation File from the dialog box

  11. Click on Next, then Finish.

  12. Application tree structure should be as below.

  17. Click on Go. And this is how data will look like.

  18. Now why we created annotation file. We haven’t implemented any changes there. Click on “annotationsN.xml”, open it in “Annotation Modeler”. Add the following annotations.

  19. Run the application with  flpSandbox.html. Open tile, and you will notice the columns are coming up. You don’t have to select from “Settings”. Moreover, there are filters in “Filter Bar”

  20. Click on Go, and data is displayed. Select the filters to narrow down the result set.

      Hi Kiran,

      Thanks, this was really helpful.

      Is there a quick way to change the filter to a dropdown box populated with the data that is returned?

      When I try to run the FIORI elements app before creating the annotations, the UI loads up.

      On clicking 'Go', I get the following error in browser console.

      GET$batch 405 (Method Not Allowed)

      What should be done differently in order to fetch data from the Northwind OData service?

      Hi Pradeep

      Batch operation comes into picture when you are trying to post data to backend.

      You can ignore this error if you are just fetching the data.


      Is your data not loading when you click on Go button? Can u also share screenshot of console?


      Make sure ur columns before u hit go button.

      Thanks and Regards

      Thanks Kiran. This document was a good start for me.

      I got the same error as Pradeep where the data was not loaded after action "Go" which I resolved by adding "useBatch": false in manifest.json as below.

      "dataSource": "mainService",

      "preload": true,

      "settings": {

      "defaultBindingMode": "TwoWay",

      "defaultCountMode": "Inline",

      "refreshAfterChange": false,

      "metadataUrlParams": {
      "sap-value-list": "none"

      "useBatch": false


      Thank you.

      Hello Kiran,


      The issue is resolved by Ramesh Kumar's suggestion above-

      by adding “useBatch”: false in manifest.json as below.

      “dataSource”: “mainService”,

      “preload”: true,

      “settings”: {

      “defaultBindingMode”: “TwoWay”,

      “defaultCountMode”: “Inline”,

      “refreshAfterChange”: false,

      “metadataUrlParams”: {
      “sap-value-list”: “none”

      “useBatch”: false


      Thank you.
