SM02 System Messages in Fiori Launchpad

Hi guys,

apparently there is no standard mechanism to display system messages created by SM02 in the Fiori Launchpad. Is this true? If yes, what's the alternative? In the future some users should not even log in to the backend system but work exclusively in the Launchpad (according to SAP). How do those users get informed about system messages (e.g. emergency shutdowns)?

Cheers, Klaus

    Hi Klaus

    Some customers have used a News Feed tile to show System messages such as SM02 messages.

    This is custom development but works quite nicely - Matt Harding has done something like this I believe?.

    You want to lock the tile group so that it always appears and users can't hide it - otherwise of course they won't see the message.

    • Hi Klaus, I would expect that a wrapper function of some kind would be needed to provide the local absolute URL for each system. Or you can go with the shell plug-in approach as the others have recommended.

      If you decide to take the plug-in approach, make sure that when using help.sap.com you search first on your NetWeaver version, and get to the Product Page, then search for the related Fiori Launchpad guide. That's the easiest way to make sure you have the latest information

    I would suggest using Fiori Launchpad plugins for this purpose. You need to create a service to read SM02 message and show them.
