SAP Fiori for SAP S/4HANA – Yes you need SAP Fiori to Configure, Adapt and Extend SAP S/4HANA

Latest Update November 2020: Added some references to the SAP Help Portal – particularly where some of the guides have moved with SAP S/4HANA 2020 or can be a little difficult to find. Clarified that Intelligent Scenario Lifecycle Management (ISLM) is the next generation of Predictive Analytics Integrator (PAI).

Latest Update October 2020: Added 2 more apps: F4637 Manage Responsibility Rules and 4337 Manage Characteristics as Custom Fields

Most customers familiar with SAP Business Suite or Suite on HANA think of configuration as an activity you do in SAP GUI transaction SPRO, which contains the SAP Implementation Guide (IMG).  While the SAP Implementation Guide is still an important tool, in SAP S/4HANA increasingly configuration is done via SAP Fiori apps.  In this blog post, you will find a quick summary of the current main configuration apps and when to use them. 

TL;DR version: Make sure you activate the 4 SAP Business Roles (see list below) that contain the majority of SAP Fiori apps that configure, adapt, and extend SAP S/4HANA. You should do that as a minimum in your development environment. You will need these to e.g. add custom fields, create your own analytics/reports and business objects, configure launchpad content, configure cross-functional features (such as output and communications, workflows, teams and responsibilities), configure new business processes, and configure the many out of the box use cases for intelligent automation.

Using SAP Fiori apps to configure, adapt, and extend your SAP S/4HANA solution is widespread across SAP S/4HANA use cases.  These special SAP Fiori apps covers many business processes, embedded analytics, and general user experience aspects.  With very few exceptions, most of these can only be done in SAP Fiori.  So much so that even to add custom fields to SAP GUI transactions, implementing SAP Fiori – at least initially in your Development environment – is a must!

Configuration%20in%20SAP%20S/4HANA%20is%20done%20both%20in%20the%20SAP%20IMG%20and%20in%20certain%20SAP%20Fiori%20apps

Configuration in SAP S/4HANA is done both in the SAP IMG (traditional on premise approach) and in certain SAP Fiori apps (cloud first approach)

So what types of configuration will you see in SAP Fiori apps for SAP S/4HANA?

Similar to configuration in transaction SPRO, many (although not all) configuration changes are typically captured to customizing change requests in your Development environment for transport throughout your system landscape. For example, native launchpad features such as Search, and configuration which adapts other SAP Fiori apps, such as Manage Launchpad Pages, and Manage KPIs and Reports.

There are some apps which assist you to migrate data and even code into your SAP S/4HANA system.  These are useful for both your initial implementation and for continuous improvement as you grow your system to cover more of your business.

You will also find SAP Fiori apps which extend other SAP Fiori apps and embedded analytics, and even some classic User Interfaces (SAP GUI transactions, Web Dynpro applications, and Web Client UIs) such as when adding custom fields, or creating your own custom analytics. These you would also execute in your Development environment for transport throughout your system landscape.

Some configurations are the kind where you configure first in Development and then adjust later in Production.  With this sort of configuration typically you would:

  • Set up a starting configuration for initial go-live in your Development environment,
  • Transport (or import/export) them to the rest of your system landscape, and
  • After go-live you can adjust them further in your Production environment as needed.

For example, defining validation rules, setting up product configuration simulation models, creating Teams, or defining flexible workflow templates to adjust your workflows to meet changing market conditions or seasonal needs.

Finally, there are configurations for the new business processes and the delivered with SAP S/4HANA intelligent automation use cases that are only available via SAP Fiori. For example, advanced Availability to Promise, Group Reporting, Central Procurement, Machine Learning, and Situation Handling.

Important: Before using new Line of Business processes you should check your licence bundle with your SAP Account Executive.  The Feature Scope Description of SAP S/4HANA clarifies which processes are included as part of core enterprise management of SAP S/4HANA, versus which are part of Line of Business processes that may require additional licence.

  • Some new processes have additional licence requirements, for example Line of Business processes such as Group Reporting and Intercompany Matching and Reconciliation (ICMR), and Central Procurement.
  • Some, such as Advanced Compliance Reporting (ACR) are offered in a basic (included with SAP S/4HANA) and an advanced premium version (requires additional licence).
  • Capabilities such as Flexible Workflow, Machine Learning, and Situation Handling are included as part of SAP S/4HANA.
    • For some use cases, the processes using those capabilities may require additional licence.

Note: Where additional licence is needed, licences are based on the process as a whole, there is no additional licence required for individual apps included as part of the process.

The vast majority of these apps are contained in a small set of SAP Business Roles, namely:

  • Administrator
  • Analytics Specialist
  • Business Process Specialist
  • Configuration Expert – Business Process Configuration

If you are using SAP Fiori rapid content activation, you will find a “Select recommended SAP Business Roles” feature that will help you pick up these configuration roles.  Make sure you have applied the latest version of these SAP Notes to get this option:
