Rows and Column limit on Fiori Apps

Introduction-S/4 Hana Rows And Columns Limit

S/4 Hana Fiori Apps have a restriction on the amount of data retrieved from the server. It has a limit on the number of rows and columns being shown on the app. In this article we discuss how to resolve this issue as a workaround and also by creating an app setting that shows all rows and columns. By default the setting on any Fiori app is to show

  • Rows restricted to 10000
  • Columns restricted to 50

If there are apps that require more than 50 columns it would not be shown and this article talks about how to find the right way to bring those additional column on the app. Some of the options provided to resolve this issue is as below. Please read on to find more.

  1. Swap the row and Axes
  2. Download data in excel which shows all columns and Rows
  3. Manually override the setting on the browser link
  4. Update Target mapping on the tile

The above workaround would need to be done every time the app is loaded. if you are looking for a fix that works every time the app loads automatically then use the Custom tile app to create a new tile that has the same link as the original and append it with the below Hash
