Several new or changed features are available with SAP Fiori launchpad.
In SAP NetWeaver 7.4, an automated base-line configuration on the front-end server for the SAP Fiori launchpad and designer is available.
For more information, see SAP Service Marketplace at http://service.sap.com/sltoolset (Installation: Technical Configuration Automation ABAP)
You can overwrite the system alias for the target application using the sap-system parameter for Web Dynpro applications, SAP GUI for HTML transactions, and SAPUI5 Fiori apps.
For more information, see Overwriting the System Alias for the Target Application.
You translate the text of your custom tiles, catalogs, or group titles in the SAP Fiori launchpad using the standard SAP translation tools (transaction SE63).
For more information, see Translating Tiles, Catalogs, and Groups in the Customizing Layer.
Performance was improved in the following areas:
The user interface of the tile catalog has been improved. The group panel has been removed. Instead, from each tile you can open a dialog that lists all the existing groups, and you can add the tile to, or remove the tile from the groups in the list. You can also create a new group, and add the tile to this group as well.
For more information, see Adding Tiles to Groups Using the Tile Catalog.
Tiles are now filtered according to the device types for which they are suitable, so that each device shows only tiles that are supported on that device. The supported device types (desktop, tablet, phone) are configured in the launchpad designer, when configuring the target mapping.
For more information, see Configuring Target Mappings.
It is now possible to create an incident in SAP Solution Manager from any error message by using the Contact Support button.
It is now possible to run an application in a standalone mode by specifying the application directly without referencing a configuration in an ABAP system. This is done by using the intent Shell-runStandaloneApp with parameters specifying the SAPUI5 component and the URL of the application.
For more information, see Running an Application Standalone.
Some changes were made to the documentation structure, including reordering the top level topics to reflect the work flow, and renaming some topics to improve clarity and consistency.
