  • This document nicely documents how to create a Tile pointing to URL.

     

    Thank you for sharing your experiences.

     

    Can you please advise if it is possible to create a launchpad in sap Fiori which contains tiles which points to all  applications.

    Thanks

    • Hi Maleeha,

      I didn’t get your query.

      In SAP FLP itself you can add all types of tiles to point to any application.

      Do clarify me if you are looking for something else.

  • Thanks for taking the time to write this up Rakesh.

    I’d recommend a follow up showing how to create a URL tile using a System Alias – just as we do for Fiori, GUI and WDA apps.  This is really useful if your URL protocol/host/port needs to be different for  your DEV, QAS and PRD environments.
