New Installation of S/4HANA 1809FPS0 – Part 4 – Rapid Activation for Fiori

WARNING: Please note this procedure is only for activation of SANDBOX environment in EMBEDDED Frontend installation to quickly activate and DISCOVER the different Fiori apps. For Production landscape please follow the detailed procedure without rapid content activation. With this rapid activation procedure, you may achieve upto 90% of the needed objects and remaining may have to handle manually.

The blog is based on Note 2704570 – Composite SAP note: Rapid Activation for Fiori in S/4HANA 1809 ver 17, please click on Show Changes to see what has changed since the log was updated. Use the blog only as a reference and follow the actual note which may have been updated.

Please find the rough sketch of steps to be done:

TIP: Note 2704570 is only meant for S/4HANA 1809 FPS0. For rapid activation of S/4HANA 1809 FPS1  use Note 2777142. For S/4HANA 1709 FP1 use note 2695653.
In this blog the text is shown in this COLOR it is for selection and copy/paste

STEP 1: CHECK SAP ENVIRONMENT

(A) Check SAP Fiori UI software components installed

  1. UIBAS001 400 SP00 or higher
    Enter tCode SPAM -> button Package Level
  2. SAP FIORI FOR SAP S/4HANA 1809 FPS00 or higher

Tab Installed Product Versions

(B) Ensure that SGEN is already completed on the system

(C) Proper ICF/ICM setup including FQDN 

(D) Ensure the system is configured for SSL

icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=80$$,PROCTIMEOUT=600,TIMEOUT=600
icm/server_port_1 = PROT=HTTPS,PORT=443$$,PROCTIMEOUT=600,TIMEOUT=600
icm/server_port_2 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180

(E) Suggested memory parameters. The strategy here is to double the memory parameter until runtime errors do not occur any more. You can reset back these memory parameters after activation.

abap/shared_objects_size_MB = 512     (Note 2766677, Note 1322182)
abap/buffersize = 2500000                      (Help Doc)

STEP 5: ACTIVATE ENTERPRISE SEARCH

In Work client, enter tCode STC01SAP_ESH_INITIAL_SETUP_WRK_CLIENT

TIP: All tasklists in this blog are to be performed in the work client


(A) Set TREX Destination or SAP HANA DB Connection” -> Make sure “Use SAP HANA Primary DB Connection” is ticked and Save(B) Select Models to Create Connectors” -> specify software component for search models:  SAPAPPLH
(C) The first task has manual steps to be performed to click on icon in Status column.

Execute task and select Background, the job will run for 60 mins.

If you get error – Internal session terminated with a runtime error PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE (see ST22) please refer Note 2149849 – Runtime error PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE on ESH software component update which refers Note 147568 – PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE
Ensure  PXA value in SAP profile abap/buffersize is enhanced, e.g. to 2.500.000 kB (Documentation)

After task completion, the screen should look like this:

STEP 6: ACTIVATE GATEWAY & FIORI ONE CLIENT SETUP

In Work Client, enter tCode STC01SAP_GW_FIORI_ERP_ONE_CLNT_SETUP


After task completion which takes about 15 seconds, the screen should look like this

STEP 7: RUN FIORI FOUNDATION TASKLIST

In Work Client, enter tCode STC01SAP_FIORI_FOUNDATION_S4
This task list activates (1) ICF Nodes (2) ODATA Services required for WebGUI and other generic Fiori launchpad features, (3) Initializes classic UI technologies, (4) Generates working SAP Fiori launchpad user & admin roles including composite roles.


In about 6 mins you will get error as below.
Please find errors below. These errors are will be shown as warnings in future and should be ignored. Uncheck the task Replicate backend catalog for system aliases and execute to continue.

After tasks are completed, the screen should look like below:

Enable Analysis Path Framework (APF) apps, by adding a missing authorization via transaction PFCG edit role Z_UI2_USER_700(1) Click Manually, (2) Add Auth Object /UIF/LREP . Edit -> /UIF/ROLE -> select using checkmark APFUSER and  Save

(3) Generate and go back.

Add user to role, click on User Compare and save.
Do the same for profile Z_UI2_USER_750

Similarly add below to Admin profile Z_UI2_ADMIN_700 – Add Auth Object /UIF/LREP -> Edit  /UIF/ROLE ->  select using checkmark APFADMIN and Save
Do the same for profile Z_UI2_ADMIN_750

VALIDATION: Add role Z_FIORI_FOUNDATION_ADMIN to a test user and  via tcode /UI2/FLP or directly via url: https://vhcals4hci.dummy.nodomain:44300/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell/shells/abap/FioriLaunchpad.html 


Click on the Icon on top left.
Click on SAP Menu, you should get the menu tree as below:

STEP 8: PREPARE LIST OF BUSINESS ROLES

From Fiori app reference library identify relevant business roles for activation. We will select all roles for the sandbox but you can restrict to only the required roles.

Select SAP Fiori apps for SAP S/4HANA, by Back-End Product, SAP S/4HANA

(A) Select all (or alternatively you can select the roles you need), (B) Aggregate, (C) SAP S/4HANA 1809, (D) Down Arrow, (E) Download

Click on Export list of Business Roles and save the list as csv file.

Please remove the roles from below list as these roles do not contain Fiori Content:

SAP_BR_CMMFSA_ADMIN
SAP_BR_CMMFSA_MD_MANAGER_BKND
SAP_BR_CMMFSA_TRADER
SAP_BR_PA_COMM_USER
SAP_BR_SPED_EFD_ROLE

TIP: You should do all presteps as mentioned for each in Note 2704570 before starting the next step with first activation. Activate the roles with presteps in a separate list. The tCodes to run fixes are also mentioned. Some Business Functions activation maybe a time consuming task.

SAP_BR_OPERATION_CLERK_ACM – SU24 – Auth issue
SAP_BR_PROJ_FIN_CONTROLLER – SE38 – Blacklist entries
SAP_BR_PROJ_LOG_CONTROLLER – SE38 – Blacklist entries
SAP_BR_BILLING_SPECIALIST_ISU – SFW5 – Activate Business Function
SAP_BR****IOG – SFW5 – Activate Business Function. The ***** means
—-SAP_BR_AP_ACCOUNTANT_IOG
—-SAP_BR_BILLING_CLERK_IOG
—-SAP_BR_BUSINESS_ANALYST_IOG
—-SAP_BR_DEFERMENT_ANALYST_IOG
—-SAP_BR_FC_ANALYST_PROD_IOG
—-SAP_BR_FIELD_OPERATOR_IOG
—-SAP_BR_FORECAST_MANAGER_IOG
—-SAP_BR_FORECAST_SPECIALIST_IOG
—-SAP_BR_HYDROCARBON_ANALYST_IOG
—-SAP_BR_INVENTORY_MANAGER_IOG
—-SAP_BR_PRICING_SPECIALIST_IOG
—-SAP_BR_PROD_DATA_SPEC_IOG
—-SAP_BR_SHIPPING_SPECIALIST_IOG
—-SAP_BR_SUPPLYCHAIN_MANAGER_IOG
—-SAP_BR_TERMINAL_OPERATOR_IOG
—-SAP_BR_TRANSP_SCHDLR_IOG
SAP_BR_INVOICING_SPEC_CINV – SFW5 – Activate Switch

These roles also need fix and cause errors:
SAP_BR_SETTLEMENT_CLERK_ACM – SU24 – Auth issue
SAP_BR_CMMFSA_MD_MANAGER
SAP_BR_EMPLOYEE_TRV

Split the list of roles into lists with number of roles less than 100 roles. Also prepare separate list for roles with presteps. So you must have at least 4-5 lists of roles that you want to use for next step considering you want to activate all roles.

TIP: You should prepare your own list of roles. I have prepared a list of roles for S/4HANA releases that is shared in the link.  There are 2 files for roles that were downloaded from Fiori App Library – These 2 lists include only the roles that do not have any issues. If you get error one time rerun the same list second time. There is one list for the roles that need presteps. And there are 2 more files with lists for roles that are available in SAP instance. All these lists are available also in a spreadsheet S4HANA1809FPS0_FioriRapidActivation_BusinessRoles.xls

STEP 9: ACTIVATE FIORI CONTENT

PRE-STEPS:
(A) tCode SU24, filter by transaction /ACCGO/SIT_COCKPIT, search for /ACCGO/UI, (1) Change, (2) select /ACCGO/UI, (3) Object, (4) Remove Authorization Object, Save and re-add.

(B) tCode SE38, ABLM_MODIFY_ITEMS, TYPE: METH, NAME: GET_LAST_MODIFIED
MAIN OBJECT: CL_SM_INTEGRATION_MPC, (Disable test mode, tick Allow Entry for Internal Usage)

You can do the SFW5 switch activation as mentioned in the note as well if you need the related roles.

ACTIVATION:

In Work Client, enter tCode STC01SAP_FIORI_CONTENT_ACTIVATION

The 395 roles as you see below have many country specific roles like SAP_BR_AA_ACCOUNTANT_JP , etc. There are 12 roles just with *_JP. So don’t try to activate all roles as there are roles for other countries that you may not need.

In the first task, (A) checkmark first task, (B) Click on Parameter and paste the list into the box that pops up, click on OK (Continue) at the bottom of the Define Business Roles” dialog window, and then click on (C) execute.


After clicking OK for the first task, if there are errors as below, please remove the roles that have no SAP Business Role and move them into the list that requires presteps and handle them separately.

Please see below for triggering activation of 100 roles:

TIP NO 1: Run the task list above in background (use menu option). While the task list is running, please check dumps in tcode ST22 in separate session.

TIP NO 2: If all ODATA/SICF are activated for the first time, each group of  about 100 roles takes about an hour. But if you get an error and then you reactivate the same list it should be done in few minutes. If some ODATA services are already activated the time required should be reduced accordingly.

TIP NO 3: After activating a role like SAP_BR_AP_MANAGER, if the ODATA/SICF are already activated, the delta role SAP_BR_AP_MANAGER_US takes much shorter time as some services are already activated. So as a result your subsequent lists will take lesser time than earlier ones.

TIP NO 4: If you get error first time, please try with same list second time and some errors may go away. Like the below list of errors reduced to no errors for second run.

TIP NO 5: For the subsequent activation run, if you get error Not enough shared memory exists, you can clear the shared memory in tCode SHMM. If you don’t have access to SHMM or if there is possibility of impacting other users and processes, easiest way is to logout and login. If this does not work, double the parameter  abap/shared_objects_size_MB = 512 as per Note 2766677 – Not enough shared objects memory exists, will require SAP bounce.

At the end of activation you should see result as below:

STEP 10: POST ACTIVATION

If you need roles below, please do the required Post activation steps. I will provide more details as I work on these roles.

SAP_BR_AP_ACCOUNTANT
SAP_BR_AR_ACCOUNTANT
SAP_BR_AR_ACCOUNTANT
SAP_BR_BPC_EXPERT
SAP_BR_CONSLDTN_SPECIALIST
SAP_BR_DEFERMENT_ANALYST_IOG
SAP_BR_FIELD_OPERATOR_IOG
SAP_BR_HYDROCARBON_ANALYST_IOG
SAP_BR_INVENTORY_MANAGER
SAP_BR_PROFESSOR
SAP_BR_PROJ_FIN_CONTROLLER
SAP_BR_PURCHASER
SAP_BR_STUDENT

SAP_BR_APR_ACCOUNTANT_FICA
SAP_BR_APR_MANAGER_FICA

SAP_BR_PROJECTMANAGER

SAP_BR_MATL_PLNR_EXT_PROC
SAP_BR_PRODN_PLNR

As a Post Activation step you can revert back Memory Parameters that were temporarily increased for activation.

COMPONENT FOR INCIDENTS:

You can open OSS messages using component BC-INS-TC-CNT
Please mention the SAP Fiori UI software components

LANDSCAPE CONSIDERATIONS:

The procedure for rapid activation is only applicable for the Sandbox. It is not to be used for Production Systems.
