Creating Navigation TargetsLocate this document in the navigation structure

Users can use the Open In… button in the footer of an APF-based runtime application to navigate to other applications. The context of the current analysis path including start filters and other filters such as selections made in the charts up to the active analysis step are handed over to the other application.

When the user navigates back to the APF-based application, the analysis path is reloaded in exactly the same status as it was when navigating to the other application, that is, all analysis steps and all selections made are retained.

You can define multiple navigation targets for each configuration. To create a navigation target, click Start of the navigation path Add Next navigation step New Navigation Target End of the navigation path. Enter the semantic object and action as defined in the corresponding target mapping configured in the Fiori launchpad designer. The description is taken over from the target mapping. As soon as you enter a semantic object, the value help for the action is filled with all actions that are available for this target mapping and that you are authorized for. The Action field is prefilled with the first action in this list.

At runtime, the navigation targets are displayed in the Open In… dialog in the same order as they appear in the tree structure. You can change the order of the navigation targets by moving them up or down the tree structure using the arrow icons.

The list of navigation targets in the Open In… dialog can be different from user to user. Whether a navigation target is visible for a user depends on the following:

  • The user is authorized for the target mapping of the navigation target. This is the case if the user has a role to which the catalog is assigned which contains the target mapping.

  • The navigation target supports the form factor the user is currently using: desktop, tablet, or smartphone. This is also configured in the target mapping.
