Prerequisites for Implementation

Before implementing the app, you must ensure the following:

  • You must have installed and configured SAP Travel Management.

  • You must have activated Business Function FIN_TRAVEL_4 in SFW5.

Configuration Tasks

To be able to implement the app, you must perform the following configuration tasks in the back-end system:

You can perform the following optional configuration tasks in the back end system in Customizing for Travel Management under Start of the navigation path SAP Fiori  Next navigation step My Travel and Expenses End of the navigation path:

  • Map Expense Types to Claim Category (V_PAOC_CLM_CAT)

    In this Customizing activity, you can decide which icon should be displayed for which expense type.

  • MTE: Field mapping between the Backend and the UI for error handling

    In this Customizing activity, error and warning messages are mapped to fields in the app. As a result, the field which causes the error or warning will be highlighted. You only need to adjust this mapping if absolutely necessary.

  • Define Message Mapping Between App and Back End (V_PAOC_ERR_MAP)

    In this Customizing activity, you can access table PAOC_ERR_MAPPING to define the mapping between your messages and the back-end message classes.

  • Extensibility and Message Mapping for My Travel and Expenses (PAOC_MY_TRAVEL_EXPENSES_BADI)

    You can use this BAdI to extend the UI for the My Travel and Expenses app. You can also use this BAdI (Method, ERROR_MESSAGE_MAPPING) to map parameters within messages from the back-end message classes to the dedicated message class for the My Travel and Expenses app. You can use the BAdI method USERPROFILE_GET_ENTITYSET to change the maximum attachment size for an expense report.
