Activating Business Content

Administrators need to activate a content package to add its business content to a site, so that the content is available for publishing.


You have added one or more content packages to your site. For more information, see Managing Business Content Provided by SAP.


You activate a content package using the Content Packages editor.

To activate an SAP S/4HANA content package, you first need to assign one or more back-end systems to the content package.

After activation, you can work with the content of the package in the content management editors. For example, you may want to assign local roles to groups and catalogs.

When you are done, you can preview the site to view the content, and then publish the site.

  1. In the SAP Fiori launchpad configuration cockpit, select Content Packages from the side panel.
  2. Select an SAP S/AHANA content package and click Edit (at the bottom right corner of the screen).

    When you click OK, the system is added to the list and is selected. Select additional systems, if necessary. A system can be assigned to one content package only.

  5. Click OK and then Save.
  6. Click Activate.

    A green check mark is added next to the activated content package in the list.

    The content is added to the content management editors, and the package information is added to the content filters.

    You can also deactivate a content package either by using the Deactivate button, or by removing all the systems assigned to the activated content package.
