Inbox (Fiori)

Promenta requests can be integrated and approved using the SAP Fiori Inbox to give a seamless approval process for your users who are already using the Fiori Inbox.

Please note : Additional licencing restrictions, maintenance fees and service fees may apply. Please check with Promenta.

Please note : Promenta does not offer Fiori consultancy and so cannot advise on standard Fiori implementation.

Fiori Inbox

When integrated into the SAP standard Fiori inbox the approval items appear in the inbox along side other workflows from your SAP system. The example below shows a small set of approval items and one open for approval

The standard Promenta implementation will display summary information in the approval item. To approve the user then hits the “Open Task” button to open the item and review and approve.

The Fiori integration is achieved using the SAP ICF engine much like SAP core Fiori apps. The Promenta solution uses HTML5, JavaScript and SAP Web Application Server (WAS).  

FAQ-7 : What about gateway/firewalls

Gateways and firewalls usually site between the internet and the SAP systems. For gateway/firewalled implementations the SAP Web Dispatcher must be enabled to allow traffic to reach the SAP system safely.
