Scanning functionality (RFID / QRCODE / NFC / Barcode) with SAP Asset Manager application

Dear Team,

Can anyone guide if SAP Asset Manager provides the Scanning Functionality (RFID / QRCODE / NFC / Barcode)

I am referring the user guide and I do not see any scanning functionality mentioned there.

Please guide, If this is present in Standard and If NOT, If this is feasible to customize the Asset Manager application and include this functionality.

Request to provide some expert opinion. Many Thanks in advance !!

Thanks and Regards

Neha Mahanty

    Hello and greetings.

    Normally the Asset Manager takes the capability of the Mobile Development Kit SDK capability (API) and what the IOS Core framework supports. Not all features are assumed to be built-in.

    Currently It supports the generic scanning that a iPAD or iOS can support (using the camera or QR Code).

    For special tagging like the RFID and/or NFC (no batteries or sensing tag), you may need to customized the Asset Manager features to extend the Apple Core NFC capability (or Android).

    So in theory, let us say you use the SAPUI5 SDK you will probably need to call the barcode scanner control then use the Apple Core NFC capability (assuming you are using iOS) to support the NFC tagging.

    See Apple NFC Core developer information: (For more information)

    Out of the box, this is a further enhancement to the Asset Manager which is To Be Determine or not available and may need to be customized by a partner or by the actual customer if this is part of the business requirement.
