If you want to create your own APF-based application, we recommend using the generic APF runtime application, which is shipped with APF. This generic application already contains important elements that are required for an APF-based application. For example, a BSP application along with the application configuration file is already there so that you only need to create a configuration using the APF Configuration Modeler. In addition, the semantic object and the action, which you need to integrate the application with SAP Smart Business, are already defined for the generic application so that you can easily configure a Smart Business KPI tile to launch the app.
To use the generic runtime application, proceed as follows:
Click the + icon to create a new application and enter a description. The Semantic Object field is already filled with FioriApplication. Save your application.
This step is not required if you create an additional configuration in an already existing APF application.
Create a configuration using the APF Configuration Modeler app.
You can now launch your application from a Smart Business KPI tile.
