    • Before registering to FLP (on HCP), app has to be deployed to HANA Cloud Platform first

    • add mode=admin at the end of the FLP url to look into management cockpit of SAP FLP (of course you should have admin role

  8. Prior to deploying apps (from HCP) to SAP Fiori Launchpad, it’s best to create at least one catalog, role and a group in Fiori Configuration Cockpit

    • Go to service  on SAP HANA Cloud Portal

    • create a new site (if not done before) and select Fiori Launchpad

    • Click manage catalog > click on '+' , provide some name

    • Navigate to Roles , click on '+' , select 'Everyone'

    • Come back to FLP admin cockpit home page, click on Manage Tile Groups
