You can integrate SAP Fiori apps and the SAP Fiori launchpad into the SAP Business Client.

There are different ways of integrating SAP Fiori apps and the SAP Fiori launchpad into the SAP Business Client. They can also be integrated on different levels. You have the following options regarding integration:
  • Via Fiori Launchpad connection type

    Here, you can run SAP Fiori launchpad embedded in the SAP Business Client.

    Deployment of SAP Fiori Launchpad on ABAP Front End Server and SAP Enterprise Portal is supported. There are back-end dependencies for the full usage of theFiori Launchpad connection which is related to SAP Fiori launchpad resources on the Fiori launchpad / frontend server. To be able to render transactions with SAP GUI for Windows, the ABAP front-end server requires at least User Interface Add-On 2.0 SP01 for SAP NetWeaver or component SAP_UI 750 SP01, and the SAP Enterprise Portal requires at least SAP NetWeaver 7.5 SP4.

    For the ABAP frontend server, the launchpad content is defined as described in the SAP Fiori launchpad documentation in the SAP Help Portal published on SAP site (search for Setting Up Launchpad Content under Start of the navigation path User Interface Add-On 2.0 for SAP NetWeaver  Next navigation step SAP Fiori Launchpad End of the navigation path).

    For SAP Fiori Launchpad on Portal, search for the topic Configuring SAP Fiori Launchpad on Portal in the NetWeaver library in the SAP Help Portal published on SAP site .SAP Business Client facilitates the integration of classic Dynpro applications with the embedded SAP GUI for Windows.

    For more information, see System Connections.

  • Via transaction PFCG

    Here, you can enhance the classical SAP Business Client navigation structure in PFCG by singular SAP Fiori apps (or even the SAP Fiori launchpad as an entry page).

    For more information, see SAP Fiori Integration into PFCG

Level of Integration of the SAP Fiori Launchpad
As the previous section explains, you have two options of integrating the SAP Fiori launchpad. Each option provides a different level of integration with the SAP Business Client:
  • Via Fiori Launchpad connection type

    This method provides you with full access to the SAP Fiori launchpad features; you have access to the launchpad shell and its functions such as giving feedback, creating support messages, and changing user settings. Additionally, you can call SAP GUI transactions and have full access to all their features as SAP GUI for Windows is invoked.

  • Via transaction PFCG

    This method provides you with a limited set of SAP Fiori launchpad features. You can use it as an entry page, and call your individual SAP Fiori apps from it. Note that you do not have full access to native SAP GUI transactions using this method; a web-GUI version of the transaction is opened instead with a limited range of available options.
