Dear SAPLearners, in this blog post we will learn how to integrate Fiori apps in SAP Cloud Platform Portal.

Before going into further details, let’s understand about Portal service in SAP Cloud Platform and its features.

What is SAP Cloud Platform Portal?

A role-based, multi-channel and central point of entry for employees, customers, and partners to access business apps. It is available as a subscription service in the Cloud Foundry and Neo environments.

We can access business apps and content from SAP Cloud Platform and also from other SAP products like S/4 HANA. More overs content from other providers can also be accessed from Portal.

We can integrate different types of apps like SAPUI5, SAP GUI for HTML, Web Dynpro ABAP in SCP Portal.

Let’s look into the steps to integrate fiori apps in SAP Cloud Platform Portal.

Step-by-Step Procedure

1. Log On to SAP Cloud Platform Cloud Foundry environment. Navigate to Subscriptions and subscribe for Portal service.

2. Meanwhile, to expose fiori apps in Portal we need to add launchpad information to the manifest.json file. In fact, it’s the same process for all kinds of HTML5 applications.

3. We assume you have already ready with the fiori app, if not we recommend you to create, build and deploy the fiori app by following this tutorial.

Configure the manifest.json file

4. Navigate to manifest.json file of the fiori app and add below launchpad configurations.

Semantic Object and ActionThis defines the navigation intent of the app in the portal launchpad.

"crossNavigation": {
            "inbounds": {
                "intent1": {
                    "signature": {
                        "parameters": {},
                        "additionalParameters": "allowed"
                    },
                    "semanticObject": "portalDemo",
                    "action": "display",
                    "title": "Fiori App",
                    "info": "running in Portal",
                    "subTitle": "my subtitle",
                    "icon": "sap-icon://account"
                }
            }
        }
