This document covers the general steps to take when installing SAP Fiori apps. Where necessary, these instructions refer to app-specific documentation.

System Landscape

According to the type of app you want to use, the system landscape for SAP Fiori apps consists of different components for the front end and the back end. For more information, see Setup of SAP Fiori System Landscape with ABAP Environment.

For the installation of SAP Gateway, we recommend using the Central Hub Deployment option, which means that you separate business content from front-end content. You therefore have to install components on a back-end server and a front-end server. For more information, see Deployment Options.


You have set up the following software:

  • anyDB


    SAP HANA, platform edition

  • SAP NetWeaver

  • SAP Business Suite product

For information about the required releases and support package stacks, see Installation Requirements (Transactional Apps).

Software Update Manager is shipped as part of the software logistics toolset (SL Toolset) 1.0 – independently of the applications.
