My experience with Fiori Elements: Custom App Development & Standard App Extensibility
This Series of blogs will give us perspective for using the various development Approaches, Architecting, Best practices and Guidelines of using the Fiori Elements / Smart controls-based Fiori applications based on my experience.
This blogs series is based on my experience with ABAP ON HANA/ Fiori Elements from various S/4HANA Projects starting from S/4HAHA 1610 to Current Release, I have come across many Business scenarios and approaches which can be used for Fiori apps developments.
In this blogs series, I will try to cover below key topics & important stuff based on my learning so far:
- S/4HANA Project Development Inventory: Typical WRICEF Development.
- Custom Fiori Elements Architecting & Development Overview(Part2)
- Fiori Element’s based apps UI, Backend & OData Modelling(Part3)
- Custom Fiori Elements based applications use cases details.
- SAP Standard Fiori Elements Based app extension apps used in real time S/4HANA Project.
In this first part of the blog series, I will cover the typical S/4HANA Project (on premise) Development scope.
WRICEF Development (Workflow, Reports, Interfaces, conversion, Enhancements, Forms)
WRICEF development in any S/4HANA (on premise) implementation have seen significance improvement with evert release.
|WRICEF Type||Few latest Features|
|Workflow(W)||Flexible Workflow , BRF+ agent determination|
|Reports ( R )||List Report/ Object Page, Query Browser, SAC etc. instead of ALV based reports|
|Interface(I)||Cloud Platform Integration( CPI) based integration with SaaS systems|
|Enhancements(E)||AMDI BAdi, HADI, Custom Field and Logic app etc.|
|Forms(F)||Maintain Form template Fiori app, BRF+ based output determination|
Standard and Custom Fiori apps development & Deployment:
Technology vision is very clear: “Any Where, Any Computer, Any Device”, Browser is recommending more and more and instead of accessing via SAP GUI.
Fiori Apps development/ deployment is being the core and major part of any S/4HANA Project implementation. We have Fiori apps based on various UI Technology such as:
- GUI for HTML
- UI5 Based Application
- Web Dynpro
- URL Link
- Analytics Tooling Based Apps (ex SAP Analytics Cloud Web Client UI, Design Studio etc.
In the next blog, I will cover the Custom Fiori Elements Architecting & Development Overview. Stay tuned.
