SAP Fiori Catalog, Business Group & Role Creation

Will see how to Create a Catalog and Business Group in Fiori Launchpad Designer

 

What is Fiori Catalog?

A catalog is a set of Tiles / Applications you want to make available for one role. Depending on the role and the catalogs assigned to the role, users can browse through the catalogs and choose the Tiles / Applications that they want to display on the entry page of the SAP Fiori launchpad.

What is Business Group?

A group is a subset of Applications from one or more catalogs. Which tiles are displayed on a user’s Home page depends on the groups assigned to the user’s role. In addition, the user can personalize the entry Fiori Page by adding or removing Applications to pre-delivered groups or self-defined groups.

 

Why to Create a Custome Role?

If we use SAP Standard Role End User / Business User will be getting lots of other Application which are not required actually and His / Her Home page will end up messy with lots of business groups and Applications

 

Please Follow Below Steps to Create a Successful Role instead of using SAP Standard Role for Fiori Role.

Need to Create Catalog & Business Group 

2. Click on Add / Create button

  9. Click back button and come to the main page

We can see under the Business Group which we created now we have 4 apps once from catalog which we created and other 3 are from different / SAP  standard Catalogs

Let’s Test our work

 

  1. Now login to Fiori launch Pad by using /n/UI2/FLP

      Hi! Ruthvik,

      Thanks for excellent blog. Do you happen to know if creation of catalog and group can be done via standard program similar to how we can do mass maintenance of Fiori roles via program provided by SAP "PRGN_CREATE_FIORI_FRONTENDROLE"?

      Thanks!

      Nice document for someone to first have a go!  Pity I do not have access to create a role in my Demo System though.

      One question, if you click on a Fiori App and there is no response, then what could be the cause of this problem?

      Warren Nash reason would be App action might not assign during role creation

      Nice Blog. Thanks.

      Do you know of a report that shows Catalogs, Groups, Roles, Users?

      I'm surprised there's no tcode or report to show all this information.

      Thanks.

      Hi Ramin,

      As there is no standard report, we have prepared a custom one and made it public: https://help.fioritracker.org/V2020/cr/FPS01/main/.

      It is one of the apps helping us with Fiori Launchpad projects - find out more here: https://help.fioritracker.org/.

      Ok Greg... I give up!

      I download your package for 1909, the readme file says for installation instructions look on the website. The website says for installation look in the download package!

      The only instructions I can find on the site are for 2020.

      You need to get Catalog-report-2020FPS01.zip from https://github.com/fioritracker/cat-rep/releases. Catalog report release 2020 FPS01 will work with your 1909 SAP S/4 HANA.

      Hello Ruthvik,

      Nice Document!!, I have a question here we have four tiles configured in a business group, that is one from custom and 3 from standard. Here, now on launchpad we see only 2 tiles one from custom and another from standard. Why, the other two tiles are not showing?

       

      Many Thanks / Himanshu Gupta
