[SAPUI5] Extending an Fiori Elements Object Page with extensionAPI


Hi UI5-Developers,

I created a List Report Application with Fiori Elements and then made a few changes with the annotation modeller.
Now I am trying to implement an header extension for the Object Page which looks like this:

The view shall implement the URLHelper library and bind the actual data of the odata model used by the application. ( The screenshot displays the example from the API with a draft JSONModel.

My intention is to bind the view to the context of the Object Page so that I can bind the mail address of that object and using the list as a way of hyperlinking the mail address.
Now I am basically wondering how I use my odata model in the extension controller.

To do that I thought of using the extensionAPI like this post states However, right at the start, I am getting following error code when trying to use the extensionAPI object:

The Reference does not seem to be wrong, since I am reaching the functions defined by the API under sources in my dev tools.

Controller Code:

	"sap/ui/core/mvc/Controller", "sap/ui/model/json/JSONModel", "sap/suite/ui/generic/template/ObjectPage/extensionAPI/ExtensionAPI"
], function (Controller, JSONModel, extensionAPI) {
	"use strict";

	return Controller.extend("namespace.ext.controller.CommunicationExtension", {
		onInit: function (evt) {
			var oModel = new JSONModel({
				"SupplierCollection": [{
					"Tel": "+49 6227 747474",
					"Sms": "+49 173 123456",
					"Email": ""
		onAfterRendering: function (evt) {
// raises type Error -> this.extensionAPI is undefined this.extensionAPI.getViewId(); }

Thank you very much for your help.
