Migrate P&F attachment logic to FIORI apps


Currently we're migrating the HCM process and forms to FIORI apps. We're stuck with porting the attachment logic from P&F to FIORI.

Any help on this regard will be appreciated at the earliest.

    You mean you are creating custom Fiori apps as a frontend to HCM P&F? In any event, you just said you are "porting" the logic, so yes, it will be custom too. You will likely take the SAPUI5 file upoad control and then will handle the content in your controller to then "trigger" you code on the backend. As this is all very custom, not sure you will have much help from others. I would look at "similar" standard Fiori apps for help.

    Hi Christopher Solomon

    Apologize for the late reply.

    Yes, its a custom fiori app. But the main issue is i cannot see the attachments in the work-item level... Any configurations or patches to be done to enable that. I find that if it gets attached in the work-item level, its visible in the approvers inbox else its not.

    For the P&F also we were having the attachments in the portal level only and not in the work-item level.

    Thanks for you time.

    it all depends on the way the attachments were created in HCM P&F... probably they were classical Archivelink, which is not supported by Fiori Apps.

    At Znk we are specialised in that kind of problematic and we can discuss the best approach with you. For these kind of issues, we have created an SAP add-on: YAC

    YAC is able to manage all types of attachments and to make them visible in the Fiori Apps attachment lists.

    In the same manner it is able to transform any attachment added to a Fiori App attachment list into a GOS or Archivelink (Business Document) attachment.

    Furthermore YAC supports all types of Content Repositories, on premise and in the cloud: SAP, OpenText, CMIS (Sharepoint, Alfresco, ...), File System, and custom !

    And very important: YAC does all this without any change in the SAP Standard or in the Fiori Apps ! No need to customize your UIs, YAC will do the job ! If you wish further information send a mail to
