If your app uses a KPI tile, you can define new KPIs or adapt predefined KPIs to determine what information is displayed and how it is visualized in the tile. To enable users to model KPIs based on their requirements, SAP provides the KPI Modeler tool.

You can model your own KPIs according to your business needs and activate them. SAP also delivers predefined KPIs which do need modeling but which do not need activation as they are delivered in an active state.

For the information if your app uses a KPI tile or not, see the app-specific documentation in the section SAP Fiori Apps.

Prerequisites

  • You have installed the KPI Modeler product on the front-end server and set up the database tables that are required by the KPI Modeler on the SAP HANA server.

  • Your SAP HANA user is assigned the role sap.hba.apps.kpi.s.roles::SAP_SMART_BUSINESS_MODELER.

Procedure

  1. From your reverse proxy, open the KPI Modeler at the URL /sap/bc/ui5_ui5/sap/ca_kpi/modeler/index.html.

  2. Depending on whether you want to create new KPIs or use the KPIs delivered by SAP, proceed as follows:

    • If you want to create your own KPIs, proceed as follows:

      1. Create the required KPIs.

        You can use the KPI templates provided by SAP to create KPIs.

      2. Create any required variants and evaluations of the KPIs.

      3. Assign authorizations to the relevant users.

      4. Activate the KPIs.

      5. Assign visualizations to the KPIs.

    • If you want to use the KPIs delivered by SAP, proceed as follows:

      1. Create any required variants and evaluations of the KPIs.

      2. Assign authorizations to the relevant users.

      3. Activate the evaluations.

      4. Assign visualizations to the KPIs.

  3. Configure the generic drill-down application for the KPIs.

    Check whether SAP delivers templates to support the configuration of the generic drill-down application for your app.

    Note Note

    If the KPIs use custom drill-down apps, you do not need to configure the generic drill-down application.

    End of the note.
