SAP Fiori Launchpad Prerequisites – Activation of mandatory OData services and SICF nodes, Configuration of SAP Fiori Launchpad Logon/ Logoff Screens

Hello SAP Community

It’s been soo long that I came up with a blog due to Parental care. Now go through on what I have presented.

Right now I am working on S/4 HANA Standard SAP Fiori apps activation and learned many things in which below are some you can check out.

SAP Fiori Launchpad Prerequisites:

Activation & Purpose of Mandatory OData Services:

/UI2/PAGE_BUILDER_CONF – used by SAP Fiori Launchpad Designer Cross Client for configuration of Catalogs.

/UI2/PAGE_BUILDER_CUST – used by used by SAP Fiori Launchpad Designer Client Specific for customization of Spaces & Pages.

/UI2/PAGE_BUILDER_PERS – used by the SAP Fiori Launchpad for personalization by end users.

/UI2/TRANSPORT – used by the launchpad designer to capture the Catalogs, Spaces and Pages changes.

/UI2/INTEROP – used by both SAP Fiori Launchpad and Launchpad designer.

Go to T-Code /iwfnd/maint_service and then Add ServiceRepeat the above for 4 more services. When the particular service is registered, corresponding ICF node will also be activated.

SICF Nodes:

Configuration of Logon/Logoff Screens of SAP Fiori Launchpad:

Logon Screen:

Open Service path: /default_host/sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell in SICF

Double click, choose Display/ Change and go to Error Pages.

Click Configuration

Here you can customize your Logon Pad.

Once the changes are saved, do the test service, and check the Launchpad logon screen changes.

You can repeat the same config changes for below nodes also.

/default_host /sap/bc/ui5_ui5/sap/ar_srvc_launch

/default_host /sap/bc/ui5_ui5/sap/ar_srvc_news

/default_host /sap/bc/ui5_ui5/sap/arsrvc_upb_admn


Logoff Screen:

Open SICF Node: /sap/public/bc/icf/logoff

Double click, choose Display/ Change and go to Error Pages.

With this, you can redirect to logon pad after logging off.


Thanks for reading.

Please do comment & share.

      Hi Dhanasupriya,

      Thank you for posting this blog, very informative.

      Do you have any guidance for the following problem I am having?

      I am using the desktop version of business client which opens in Chromium.

      After a recent update to the logon screen (Dev, Qual, Prod), I am finding the Production logon screen is still showing the old logon screen/picture. We've restarted the gateway server, and that did not work. I can get the new Production screen to show after I clear Chromium cache and restart the business client. The odd part is that when we implemented in Quality, there was no issue seeing the new logon screen after the gateway restart.

      If I use the html link, the new logon screen is ready and available.

      Thank you, Robin
