Register to SAP Fiori Launchpad does not use flp-config.json settings

Hello Web IDE Experts,

when you follow the instructions from Create/Deploy to the SAP Fiori Launchpad you get the File flp-config.json generated. I've done this for one of my projects in SAP Web IDE Full Stack on SCP Production. Now I want to reuse the flp-config.json with some small adjustments in another project which I've then already deployed to SAP Cloud Platform. The content defined i.e. the Semantic Object:

In the Web IDE I do a right-click on the project and choose Deploy -> Register to SAP Fiori Launchpad:

Now I would expect that the wizard would read an existing flp-config.json and pre-populate the wizard form fields with i.e. the Semantic Object. But this is not the case as you can see here:

There seems to be one location where something that I've defined in my project is taken into account. That is the SCP Cloud Portal. When I add a new app there, then the Intent Navigation is taken from what I've configured in my app. But I don't think that this is the content of flp-config.json. I think that is coming from the manifest.json of my app:

So another question occurs: Why is there a flp-config.json file when already the manifest.json can define many details of a tile?

Best regards

    Hi Gregor,

    I'm afraid this is not supported. The wizard creates this file which is then being sent in the request, not the other way around.
