S/4HANA Fiori Factsheet apps and restrictions

The Factsheet apps / Enterprise Search (ES) reduces the time spent for searching as you no longer have to navigate to different transactions, applications and tab pages to find the object you wish to edit.

Prerequisites :

  1. Web-dispatcher is activated and configured.
  2. Fiori Launchpad setup is complete.
  3. Roles and authorizations for fact-sheet apps is complete. For roles required for factsheet app user and admin activity, refer (
  4. Relevant business functions are activated in backend systems (UI Technology Guide for SAP S/4HANA 1709 FPS02)
  5. Transaction ESH_COCKPIT is active and running
  6. All the search connectors from Software component : SAPAPPLH are activated. Run task list : SAP_ESH_INITIAL_SETUP_WRK_CLIENT
  7. Indexing of connector is done in STC01 : Task name : SAP_ESH_CREATE_INDEX_SC
  8. System alias and RFC connections are setup and running fine.
  9. System alias and RFC for GUI and Web Dynpro is setup and active.

Admin roles :


User roles :



Factsheet apps authorization restriction :

Once you activate software component : SAPAPPLH, you can see all the search models which are available and activated.

Take an example, that user wants to access only the specific factsheet apps. You might be thinking that only specific search connector/model needs to be activated. But no, in this case we need to handle the authorization of search models by manually adding search connectors to the authorization objects in PFCG.

Authorization object name : S_ESH_CONN

Template name : TEMPL_NAME

      Hi Hitesh,

      If you really go through the URL you sent me, you can read through and find out if it requires Search Connector. Go to Configuration section to find out. Every factsheet app requires a Search Connector, not one but may be more than one, since factsheet apps are linked to other factsheets. On how to do it, please find a search document which explains setup of Enterprise Search. In case of any issues you encounter, kindly raise a new discussion rather than posting comments. Thanks !

      Hello Tejas,

      Do Factsheet apps like Maintenance Notification (App Id : F0228) are compatible with SAP Cloud Platform ?

      Factsheet app mentioned by you is compatible with S/4HANA and S/4HANA Cloud versions. Not sure why SCP comes in the picture. Do you mean S/4 Cloud version ? SCP will come when you are connecting your onpremise to cloud.

      How to transport these configurations to quality & production? Do we need to perform these steps manually in each landscape?
