How to set up fiori tile for SAP GUI Transaction – IW8W?

In S4HANA implementation we may encounter a situation where no standard Fiori app is available for certain SAP GUI Tcodes. One way to expose backend transactions to Fiori Launchpad is by implementing App Descriptors. In this case we did not find a fiori app for Goods Receipt for Refurbishment order (SAP Tcode IW8W) in S4HANA 1809 FPS01 system.



Required transaction exists as Web Dynpro/FPM or SAP GUI for HTML.

The user should have been assigned role SAP_UI2_ADMIN in backend and frontend servers



Fiori front end gateway system is connected to back end system. All technical activation of fiori launchpad has been enabled.


Here below are the step-by-step process on how to enable SAP GUI Transaction IW8W, in Fiori Launchpad using Application Descriptors and Technical Business Catalogs in S/4HANA 1809 On-Premise.


Define App Descriptor in the Back-End System.


  1. Verify through Tcode SE93 if the Tcode IW8W is SAP GUI for HTML.

  • Hi Ramanujam,

    I have followed steps given in the blog.

    I facing problem while executing extraction program.

    Program is calling front end system not back end system in which i have created catalog id.

    Please find attached document.

    How can i rectify this please suggest



  • Hi Ramanujam,

    We are planning to implement this for some tcodes, I have small doubt is these changes transportable from Dev to QA. I know its asking TR for step 4 & 5.
    I am confused in step 8 entering entry in Catalog system alias mapping. So is there any manual steps we need to do in every system in landscape.


    With regards


    • Hi Nandish,

      I can recall, in both Back end (S4HANA)  and Front End (Fiori gate way) system,  Work Bench request was getting created.

      This should allow import from Dev to QA system in my view.

      Can you check and share your experience plz ?
