Adapt UI in SAP S/4HANA Cloud to hide New Item Icon in the SAP GUI screen MIGO


SAP has provided an interesting option called ‘Adapt UI’ in SAP S/4HANA Cloud which is based on SAP Screen Personas. It enables classic applications to behave more like SAP Fiori apps. It simplifies the complex classic applications by redesigning the screen elements like hiding an icon/field, changing table properties, formatting the labels/fields, grouping the required fields from different tabs into a single screen as per the business needs in a very simple way without any prior technical knowledge. Even the functional consultants can easily make the classic screen changes to meet the client requirements.

In this Blog post, I will show you how to hide ‘New Items’ icon in the SAP S/4HANA Cloud classic screen MIGO (App name: Post Goods Movement) using Adapt UI functionality

As a pre-requisite, Create Assignment category before proceeding with the below video.

Access fiori app ‘Manage Flavors’ > select ‘Assignment Categories’ > Click on ‘Create’ icon > Input the Assignment category name and click on ‘Continue’.


Figure1: Create_Assignment Category

Now, while creating flavor as per below video, you will be able to assign it to the assignment categories. And then it will show the assigned flavors under the Flavor Assignment tab of the Fiori app ‘Manage Flavor’. Flavors can be assigned to the assignment categories using two ways either from the Manage Flavors app or using the share icon in the create flavor screen (as shown in the below video).


So, now by using Adapt UI, we have hidden the New item icon based on a condition that if Goods issue option is selected. Similarly, you can try formatting any other fields, labels, buttons, icons and table properties.


How to get started with the new Adapt UI functionality for classic applications in SAP S/4HANA Cloud.It gives information on the Business roles and assignment:

      I have below scenario.


      I have created custom business object and UI. I have hidden the field using Adpot UI for business user. However we need to update the value using API in that field. Will API able to update the value since field is hidden using Adpot UI?

      Hi Dhrupesh,

      Yes, it is possible to update values on the hidden fields using API as it is only hidden from the UI.

      Thanks and Regards,
