Custom App Launcher not available in Launchpad Designer on S/4 1610

Hi,

after reading the very informative blog Creating custom tiles with SAP HANA UI Integration Services (UIS) from Wenjun Zhou I would like to do something similar on our system.

On HCP (or SCP as you like) I did already something like that in Portal Service.

Unfortunately - I can't see such thing like custom app launcher in Launchpad Designer. System is S/4 release 1610.

Does anybody of you have an idea what I am missing?

I also wonder if this custom app launcher is only available on HANA systems. I would have expected it to be available more generally on some recent Netweaver.

Any help appreciated, of course :-)

    Hi, Meinrad.

    Netweaver does provide a way to create custom tiles. You can find information on it here:

    Implementing a Custom Tile Type - help.sap.com

    If this isn't what you mean by "custom app launcher", please feel free to clarify further requirements.

    Thanks,

    Hi Keith,

    thanks for trying to help. Your suspicion is correct. I'm not looking for creation of custom tile type. What I want to achieve is described in Creating custom tiles with SAP HANA UI Integration Services (UIS) by Wenjun Zhou. Please see the screenshot

    https://blogs.sap.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/03/4_4_660163.png

    provided in this blog with its explanation.In my understanding I should be able to specify an app or component in a SAPUI5 application along with the view as a tile

    Something similar can be done in SCP Portal Services:

    Actually - this has been done already in our team.Works quite nice! Now we would like to get this working on prem.

    Hope that makes my question clearer

    Regards

    Meinrad

    Hi Meinrad,

    That tile type is not supported in S/4HANA On Premise 1610 at the moment. Remember in 1610 the Launchpad is hosted on the ABAP Fiori Frontend Server.

    However if you are trying to create chart-based tiles similar to Wenjun Zhou's examples in Creating custom tiles with SAP HANA UI Integration Services (UIS) then an alternative is to use the Smart Business tiles which are created using Fiori apps assigned to the Analytics Specialist role, such as Manage KPI Workspaces. You'll find some more information on this here Smart Business Modeler Apps

    Rgds,
