Effects on Existing Data

If the tile for an affected analytical app was available on a user's SAP Fiori Launchpad in a previous release and the user opens the app as of SAP S/4HANA 1709, the app opens with the new Design Studio look and feel. The Web Dynpro version of the app is still available and can be added to the SAP Fiori Launchpad using the App Finder.

Please note the following differences in Design Studio apps:
  • When you open a Design Studio app, you are prompted to enter criteria for filtering the data. These filter criteria are not automatically displayed in the Filter Bar.

    To see the filter criteria, open the Settings dialog by clicking Settings. Then click Information.

  • In the new Design Studio version of the apps, you have to re-create your filter variants. Use the Web Dynpro version of the apps to find your variants for reference.

  • If you need a screen reader, please use it with the Web Dynpro version of the app for the best results. The accessible tile has the same name as the Design Studio tile, but, on the SAP Fiori Launchpad, the word "Accessible" is included in the lower right corner.

Identity and Access Management

This change in application type does not affect the existing set up of your business catalogs or business roles. Users who had access to the analytical apps before this release will also have the same access with the new Design Studio versions.

If you create new roles for users to have access to these analytical apps, we recommend that you use the template roles delivered to create your new roles.
