SAP E-Book


To enable the access from the SAP Fiori launchpad to Web Dynpro ABAP applications and SAP GUI transactions, you have to replicate information about these applications from the back-end server to the front-end server. Each app has an app descriptor which provides this information.

You have to execute the replication before you enter the SAP Fiori launchpad designer to create your own business catalogs.

All aliases maintained in views /UI2/V_SYSALIAS and /UI2/VC_SYSALIAS will be considered for the replication. As a result of the replication, read-only technical catalogs are created on the front-end server.

For more information, go to, select a release and choose Product Documentation --> UI Technology Guide --> Web Dynpro Apps and SAP GUI for HTML Apps



  • A technical catalog with application descriptor has been created in a back-end system (or the same system in case of a single system setup).
  • If the launchpad content that you want to replicate resides on a different system than the front-end server and SAP Gateway:
  • Connections between back-end and front-end systems have been established. See Establish RFC and HTTP Connection. In a single system setup, this configuration is not required. The replication will use the local system as source.

  • The system alias pointing to the relevant back-end system has been maintained in view /UI2/V_SYSALIAS or /UI2/VC_SYSALIAS.

  • (Optional) A mapping in view /UI2/V_ALIASMAP exists for all technical catalogs found in the backend.

Note that the alias lookup uses the client-dependent table /UI2/V_ALIASMAP but the replication is done from a client-independent table to a system table (configuration layer).



Standard Variants



1.,,Mark the Test Mode checkbox and choose Execute. The catalogs will not be replicated. A log is displayed.

2.,,If the log does not contain any errors, deselect the Test Mode checkbox and choose Execute.

3.,,We recommend to schedule the report to run daily. As the report needs to run after every system update, scheduling the report ensures that you always have up-to-date information in the SAP Fiori launchpad designer.
