To configure an app launcher tile, click the tile, then enter the following parameters:
The title to be displayed on the tile.
Choose Select Icon.
After you have selected an icon, the system inserts a URL starting with the sap-icon:// protocol.
These icons are based on SAPUI5 icon fonts. For more information, see Using Icon Font in SAPUI5.
Alternatively, you can manually enter a URL in any icon located on a Web server (starting with http:// or https://).
|Info||Text to be displayed at the bottom of the tile.|
(dynamic app launcher tiles only)
|Enter the unit to be displayed below the number, for example, USD.|
|Service URL||URL of the OData service from which data should be read.
When the service is called, the values that are provided by the service override the values that have been configured manually in the tile details.
Note that the service is executed on the home page only. On the admin page, sample data is displayed instead.
Tip If you only want to read a number of entities dynamically from an OData service, and read all other content for the app launcher statically from the configuration, you can use the $count parameter in the service URL.
|Refresh Interval||Number of seconds after which dynamic content is read from the data source again and
the display is refreshed.
The launch page uses a default of 10 seconds unless you enter a higher value in this field.
|Use Launchpad||Deactivate this checkbox if you want to define the navigation target using a simple URL
rather than a launchpad entry.
Note Transports of launchpads from higher SAP NetWeaver releases or enhancement packages to lower SAP NetWeaver releases or enhancement packages are currently not supported. If you are planning such transports, deactivate the Use Launchpad checkbox and enter a target URL.
Enter the data for a launchpad entry as defined in transaction LPD_CUST. This is the recommended option for launching most applications.
For more information on launchpad configuration, see SAP NetWeaver Library at .
Note When entering the data for a launchpad entry, make sure you do not enter any leading or trailing space characters, as these can result in errors.
|Target URL||You can enter any URL, for example http://help.sap.com.
Note that you have to provide a complete URL including the protocol (typically http:// or https://)
