SAP Fiori transactional applications and fact sheets consist of SAP NetWeaver Gateway OData services and HTML5/SAP UI5-based Web-enabled content managed by the Internet Communication Framework (ICF). You must use the transaction SICF to activate the ICF services required for the applications that you want to use.

The following anonymous ICF services are common to all SAP Fiori apps and must be activated:

  • /sap/public/bc/ui5_ui5

  • /sap/public/bc/ui2

    This ICF service is only required if you use SAP Fiori ICF system logon class /UI2/CL_SRA_LOGIN for form-based authentication.

The following authenticated ICF services are common to all SAP Fiori apps and must be activated:

  • /sap/bc/ui2/start_up

  • /sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell

  • /sap/bc/ui2/iframe_logon

  • /sap/opu/odata/UI2/PAGE_BUILDER_PERS

For further required ICF services for individual applications, see the app-specific SAP Fiori documentation.

Note Note

If your firewalls use URL filtering, also note the URLs used for the services and adjust your firewall settings accordingly.

End of the note.
