  • Very helpful blog. Really needed help with Fiori and how to build my own application using this technology. The video explains every detail necessary very well. Good job !

  • Waiting for the remaining Video Chapters to be uploaded.

    I guess we can also create editable List Reports using Fiori Elements and code the action handlers. Hope these topics will be covered going ahead.



    • Hi Sijin,


      The videos will be uploaded weekly as they become available! Initially, you can look forward to two videos on list report pages: one introduction to the page type and one example of building one. If you are looking for something else beyond those two, we always welcome suggestions!

      Thanks for your feedback,

      • Hi Conrad,

        First thanks for your response,

        I would wish for a scenario where we can develop Fiori Apps without SAP Web IDE ( Cloud access ), so my ask is can we create it offline using Eclipse ? To be precise I would like to know how we can develop Fiori Elements app if we have S4 Hana On Premise. And Later how we would be deploying them. This would be a complete end to end scenario for a S4 Hana On Prem system.



  • Hello Peter,

    It would be great if the UX Team can come up with a course on the Fiori Elements because they are powerful concepts but still many people do not have and end to end idea.It is a great effort with the video series but an open SAP course would be awesome.

    • Hi Prasenjit,

      We are considering an openSAP course on SAP Fiori elements. These courses take several months to produce, so please consider this video series a preview / subset of content you might see if we prepare a course in 2020.


      • Hi Peter,

        Really looking forward to the videos and the open sap course. I started with Fiori developments and it is exciting but still challenging to get the information at one place.




    • Hi Rakesh,


      We're currently preparing videos on worklist pages in SAP Fiori elements -- both a general walk through and how to build one. We're hoping for late October release, as it takes some time to plan the demos, film, and edit the videos. Of course, this date is subject to change at any time for any reason 🙂


      Kind regards,

    • quick answer: yes.
      Fiori apps are frontend applications that communicate with a backend (in your case ABAP 7.52) via APIs, mostly OData. These APIs totally hide the underlying persistence layer from the frontend.

  • Hi there,

    thanks for this nice blog. I will start looking videos and reading documentations once more in detail.

    I am writing this comment in may, 2021.

    For my developments as Backend system I will use S/4 HANA on premise (which is fine, bc. OData is used as API, I know).  As Frontend development environment I will use SAP Business Application Studio.

    My questions: Are the video tutorials and documentations of 2019 still valid? Are they major changes which make this material already out dated?

    Thanks and regards, Stefano
