Add a Chart as Custom Tile to Fiori Launchpad - Module Path

Hi everyone,

I want to create a custom tile in Launchpad which displays a chart. So far I have created a small app called MicroChartApp in Web IDE using code from the Explored App. When I run the app as standalone app from Web IDE the chart is displayed. Running the app from a Static Launcher in Launchpad works as well.

However, I have a requirement to display the chart as preview in the tile itself. From what I understand there is an option to create a Custom Launcher for the app. Now, I am not sure which values to enter in the Visualization tab. I have tried various path combinations and none seem to work. I keep getting 404 - Not found in the console when I load the Launchpad preview and the tile displays an error "Error in MicroChartApp".

The app project was created using the standard "SAPUI5 Application" template. Project source path is set to "webapp". Folder structure looks like this:

Custom Launcher configuration:

I am not sure what to put in the highlighted fields. I have tried many different combinations and none seem to work. The app has been deployed to the HCP and registered to Launchpad.

Error in console:

This is what the app looks like as standalone app:

Summary:

- I need to display a chart view from an app in a custom tile in Launchpad.

- I assume that there is an error somewhere in the path configuration.

I can provide additional screenshots if needed.

Thanks for your help!

      Thanks, unfortunately I can only use the resources available in SAP Cloud Platform Trial version. I don't have access to an ABAP backend or similar.

    Please look at this blog: https://blogs.sap.com/2015/03/09/creating-custom-tiles-with-sap-hana-ui-integration-services-uis/

    Custom Launcher configuration for visualization need to be changed. Please look at the example in the blog.
