SAP is one of the most dynamic and adaptive company. Keeping in line with the ever-changing business market conditions SAP has always come up with dynamic systems in order to cater to the needs of businesses.
When we head into new horizons we need to say Good bye to some older technology trends.In this blog post, I will be discussing how we can leverage FIORI for creating KUT fields in SAP C4C when we bid Good bye to HTML5 with the 1911 release. I’m also going to include certain basic information about how we can make adaptation changes (within creation of KUT field) through FIORI client in C4C.
Alright, so let’s jump into it.
In order to enable adaptation in FIORI client, navigate to “Settings”.
Now, go to Adaptation Settings->Enable Adaptation by clicking “YES”
Click on “Save” followed by “Log out”.
Log in again for Adaptation to become active.
Now, let’s begin with the Adaptation step by step.
Go to the “Profile Icon”, which is in the right top corner and choose “Start Adaptation”.
To create a KUT field, navigate to any standard business object e.g. “Contact” in our scenario. Click on “Edit” (as highlighted below), followed by “Contact” under the adaptation mode overview tab as shown below:
Now, Go to Add -> Field
Click on “Create Fields”
Populate the fields as per your requirement. Once you add the label, ‘Technical Name’ will be automatically generated. To complete the KUT field creation, click on ‘Save and Close’. This creates the KUT field in the system.
To display the newly created KUT field, select field checkbox and click on “Apply” as shown below:
This completes the creation of a new KUT field.
Next, we need to set the properties of the newly created KUT field.
Navigate to the Contact section and scroll down to select “Alternate Mobile” field
Click on blue arrow next to “Value”
You will be able to see options like “Set to mandatory”, “Set as Read-only” etc. as shown below. Change the properties as needed.
This completes setting up of the KUT field properties.
Next, we will extend KUT field (similar to ‘Field Definition’ in HTML) proceed with following steps:
KUT field created in the document earlier can be extended as needed in order to use it in form templates, reporting and so on.
When in your KUT field properties, Click ‘Edit’
Let’s consider the use case where we want to add the KUT field in an extension scenario. To make these changes, go to “Extension Scenario” tab-> “Edit”.
Click on “+” sign against “Account – General Information to Contract – General Information”, and then click “Save”.
KUT Field is now added to the extension scenario. To see the implemented changes, click on “End Adaptation and then logout.
Let’s login again to see the changes made.
Newly created KUT field can now be successfully seen under the contact overview section.
