SAP Easy Access Menu in Fiori Launchpad for S/4 HANA

S4HANA Fiori Launchpad AppFinder 8

In my recent project assignment I was asked to enable SAP Easy Access Menu for Fiori Launchpad.

At first i was not sure about the approach, after spending some time on internet and going through SAP best practice guides i am able to show the SAP Easy Access Menu (or) SMEN transaction with some hick-ups during the implementation.

The SAP Menu and the User Menu are also known as the SAP Easy Access Menus

Step-by-Step Procedure

1. Log On to SAP Gateway system if the Fiori deployment is Hub, in case of embedded deployment log-on to the system in which SAP_UI component is installed ( my case it is Hub deployment S4HANA system as backend system and SAP Gateway as Front End Server).

2. Launch Activate and Maintain Services transaction using the tcode – /IWFND/MAINT_SERVICE. (..don’t forget to add /n in-front of the tcode)

3. Activate below OData services

/UI2/EASY_ACCESS_MENUEasy Access Menu service
/UI2/USER_MENUUser Menu service
