Fiori cache buster not working in QA system after a transport moved ?

In my Fiori project we have 3 Front-end NW systems:

  1. DEV NW 7.4
  2. QA NW 7.4
  3. Production NW 7.4

There is also a normal transport mechanism so any change assigned to transport and moved from DEV to QA then to Production.
The Fiori Project is 7 custom Fiori apps configured in Fiori launchpad, and the Launchpad URL Link can be accessed from the internet browser so there will be 3 Fiori Launchpad Links for each system:

  1. DEV Launchpad
  2. QA Launchpad
  3. Production Launchpad

I followed the following to activate the cache buster for Fiori in the 3 NW systems (DEV, QA, Production):

Cache Buster for SAP Fiori - User Interface Add-On for SAP NetWeaver - SAP Library

Whenever a deploy happen for new change to one of the custom developed Fiori apps with transport request into the DEV NW front-end server the change will show up in the app after closing the browser then open it again then refresh the launchpad link for DEV.

The Problem:

But once the transport has been moved to QA NW front-end and after running the following SE38 reports as mentioned in the post above:




the changes for the Fiori app will not show up in the browser for the QA launchpad link even if I closed and opened the browser 99999 time or even if I refresh 99999 time, no transported change will appear in QA link Fiori app.

The only way to see the transported change in the QA NW Front-end Fiori Launchpad link is when I clear the browser history (Or uninstall then reinstall chrome browser again) and clear the cache then the new change to the fiori app will appear in QA Fiori Launchpad link.

This is a very high critical problem currently in PRODUCTION because we can't tell the end users to delete and remove there browser cache and history every time a new change happen to one of the Fiori apps (every new transport to production NW server).

Is there any working solution that you have other than SAP solution from below link which is not working at all ?

    I tested the /sap/bc/ui2/flp/FioriLaunchpad.html in DEV and it works.

    The browser keeps loading the cache if you close it and open it or keep refreshing, until I run the following report: /UI5/APP_INDEX_CALCULATE then browser display the changes right away after one single refresh correctly.

    I will create a change and transport it then test in QA .
