  • Hello Jesse,


    Thank you for the news, it would definitely simplify things.

    Last year, we installed and configured the sap webdispathcer for the sole purpose of having the Web Assistant in Fiori.


    Now that the same feature is beng provided "natively' in sap Front-End System, is there any advantage of switching from the sap webdispatcher to the sap front end ?

    Is the the same ''Web Assistant'' that is configured in both tools ?


    Thanks and Regards

    • The benefit would be you would not have to set this up or remember to maintain it.¬† If you already have everything working I would say leave it alone until you upgrade to the newest version of S/4HANA.

      Hope that helps!
