Need help with Myinbox FIORI application


Need help with the My Inbox 2.0 app implementation for netweaver 7.5 system. We are looking to implement this app for some approval scenarios like service entry sheet and expenses approval etc.

We have observed that details like info/comments/attachments are not shown in the details area of work item and user has to click 'Open task' to see the details which opens in other tab/window.

Questions around this.

1) If the user want to see the details/attachments/comments etc in the details area itself without open task link, only option is to configure the Embed integration of available FIORI app as provided in the note 2305401?

2) What if there is no standard FIORI app and no plan to create custom one? Can we have a combination of embed option for available and open link for non available?

    Hey Prasad,

    Depending on what you want to do, you could implement different solutions.

    Adding More Info

    You can find many options here in the App Extensibility: My Inbox section.

    I will highlight one option, which I think will be right for your case. It is the extend view option, with which you can add additional fields to the basic CDS view that you want to enrich. For example if you want to add more info in the header details area of a workflow item of the purchase order approval component (as below), you can extend the standard CDS View C_PurchaseOrderFs, as this great blog suggests.

    Of course there are alternatives, like extending the gateway service itself, as suggested in the attached cookbook of the note 2118812.

    Adding Links to Other Apps

    You can add existing links to other apps/views, by adapting the UI, through the Adapt UI option.

    Or if you want to add your custom links you will have to include them in your extend CDS view, depending if you want to implement internal or external navigation.

    Hope it helps,

    • Thanks George for the reply with details.

      We are still not on S4HANA and using MyInbox for Business suite. Also, not looking for extensions to add additional fields.

      Just looking for the options to integrate existing standard FIORI approval apps with MyInbox.

    1) There are multiple standard fiori applications that are integrated into the my inbox fiori app. For example Approve leave request V3 is not standalone app, but called by the My Inbox app.

    2) Yes, the config is done based on the workflow task ID. So you can customize this per process of approval
