Hi all,

We want to display Fiori Overview Page with KPIs on a large screen in our warehouses. The overview page should refresh automatically every 5 – 10 minutes. Is this possible in OVP template apps?

Thanks for your help.

Best regards,

Hi Alej,

If you could find a suitable hook method in your component controller, like onInit( ), you may be able to achieve a refresh with a time bound with the following approach:

	var that = this;
	},300000); // Interval time in milliseconds (5 minutes)

PS: I never tried this kind of solution before, so you'll need to test and see if it's possible to implement this logic inside an OVP.

Yes we have an automatic refresh feature starting SAPUI5 version 1.48 onwards.

The users can decide if they want to refresh the card data on a specific intervals. To enable this, the users will just have to include the property - “refreshIntervalInMinutes” in the manifest.json. The property should have a value more than or equal to 1 minute. If the refresh interval is set to less than 1, then the interval will be considered as 1 minute. If the value is more than 1, then the refresh interval is taken as specified by the user. After the specified minutes, the models will be refreshed and the card data will be reloaded.
