Dear SAPLearners, in this blog post we will learn about SAP Fiori Launchpad Content.

Fiori Launchpad Content

The fiori launchpad home page content consists of tiles, groups and catalogs. The content we see in the launchpad home page is called Fiori Launchpad Content.

To make a fiori app available to user in launchpad, several steps have to be configured.

Below is the overview of main components involved in fiori app configuration steps

  • User
  • Role
  • Group
  • Catalog
  • Tile
  • Target Mapping
  • Fiori/UI5 Application

User

Fiori Launchpad users usually business end users, functional consultants or fiori consultants.

Role

Role is assign to User. Role is created using transaction PFCG and the fiori administrator assigns catalogs and groups to a role. It is used to control the fiori launchpad content.

Group

Group consists of tiles and links.Fiori administrators assign tiles to a group and the group is assigned to role. Users can personalize the launchpad home page by adding or removing groups.

Catalog

Catalog is collection of app launcher tiles are target mappings. Catalog is assigned to a Role. Users have access to all the apps that are contained in the catalog via specific role assigned to them.

Tile

Tile is a visual representation of an app on the launchpad home page. When user clicks on a tile, an intent(Semantic Object + Action) is triggered, configured app is opened.

Target Mapping

Target Mapping is a mapping between intent(Semantic Object + Action) and application itself.Target Mappings are created in Catalog. It is very important for the navigation of an app in fiori home page.

Below diagram shows the relationship among the different components explained above.
