Custom context for Fiori Launchpad and apps


My client for the moment has a Web Dynpro FPM application with a context of "Product". Over there he has a few UIBBs from which he can run different actions and see relevant complex data for the Product. You can consider this page as a "Product Detail" page. He can open this page from a page with a filtered product list.

Now, he wants to go for Fiori apps. We implemented a small app for displaying the categories of the product and the stores available. For this app the first screen is a Product List and then Product Detail page with 3 tabs.

But we are now facing an issue. We cannot go an enhance this app over and over with more and more tabs and functionality. The maintenance will be really hard for it and accessing by roles would be hard. We would like to have more apps for different actions split by roles. How can we configure the Fiori Launchpad to first select a product from a list and then send this context for the other Fiori Apps from the Launchpad? The selection of a single product is an essential point. This sounds like a custom launchpad for a product

We would like to avoid the situation when the user opens an app from the launchpad, selects a product -> does something in a screen, then go back to the launchpad, opens the second app -> selects again the same product -> completes and action on that product.

Any suggestions?

    I think you are looking for Cross Application Navigation where you can call one FIORI app from another FIORI app in the FIORI Launchpad

    So, I hope this image will clear things out a bit. We would like to avoid calling one Fiori app from another Fiori app (this is what we do now, but we cannot benefit of the automatic Fiori Catalogs and Roles management if we do this on our own implementation).

    The idea is that I would like to be able to choose from a Product List a product and then get to a page like this with a lot of tiles that handle different workflows for a Product entity.

    I would like to avoid implementing the Product List in each App, so that the final user can have a nice user experience by selecting only once the product and then open different apps for different actions.

    Also building one single app with many tabs (each tab for different action) is hard to maintain, develop and handle the roles of the user. This is why I'm searching for a way to select a Product in the main Fiori Launchpad.
