In addition to the OData services mentioned above, the launchpad and launchpad designer also need the SICF services for the application resources from the front-end system.

  • /default_host/sap/public/bc/ui5_ui5/
  • /default_host/sap/public/bc/ui2/
  • /default_host/sap/bc/ui2/nwbc/ for NWBC for HTML

Activate the services mentioned above (either by right-clicking the mouse and selecting Activate Service or choosing Start of the navigation path Service/host Next navigation step Activate End of the navigation path from the menu).

Note In the Activation of ICF Services dialog box, choose the Yes button with Hierarchy icon to activate all the child nodes under this service.
