Extension of Attachment Services for SAPUI5 FIORI APPS To SAP ArchiveLink

Dear Experts,

Landscape: SAP S/4HANA 1610 FPS01, Fully-Activated Appliance

Deployment Model: On-Premise (Hosted)

We have successfully implemented the use cases (Storage Scenarios) for the SAP ArchiveLink solution for the above landscape by storing documents on external content servers / repositories; this we achieved seamlessly with the SAP GUI based transactions including those running in the LaunchPad and being rendered in the SAP GUI for HTML (that is, the Transaction typed FIORI apps).

However, replicating the same steps with the SAPUI5 FIORI Apps deployed on the same server has been elusive. The closest functionality to experiment with is the Attachment Services (AS). We had hoped that with AS support for GOS as claimed here (ref: Attachment Service), some entries would have been created in the link table e.g. TOA01 during a "Create" process by the SAPUI5 FIORI app to link the structured business document in SAP to the corresponding semi-structure document in the external repository.

We had maintained the KPRO customizing entries and done endless debugging of the ODATA back-end services without much success.

Our next experimentation will be to perform an "In-App extensibility" to address our business requirements but we want to check with SAP first to be sure that we are not missing something out.
