Fiori Monitor External Requirements (F0246) extension - add selection fields in Filter bar

Hello experts,

We are looking to extend the Fiori app Monitor External Requirements (F0246) in an S/4HANA 2020 landscape; specifically we want to add additional selection fields in the Filter bar of the first screen.

The extensibility document App Extensibility: Monitor External Requirements does not mention any extension point for adding selection fields to the filter bar, does this mean that the only way to achieve this is to go with a view replacement/copy the entire UI5 app into a customer namespace and then perform the changes?

Also, we have observed in the UI5 code of the app PP_UNCOVSO_MRS1, that the filter bar comes from another UI5 app PP_MRP_REUSES1, which is a reuse component. In such a scenario, how do we go with the mentioned extension - do we also have to copy the reuse component app into custom namespace and then adapt the code there, or just do the required change directly in the source app PP_UNCOVSO_MRS1?

Thanks

Saurabh

Hi Saurabh, It's a freestyle SAPUI5 app, so you are limited to what the developer has provided as extension possibilities. I would suggest:

1. Raise this requirement in a SAP Incident and ask for it to be passed to the Product Owner as a roadmap request ... the aim is to try to reduce future TCO. Make sure you are explicit on what additional filters you need and why you need them from a business perspective.

You should also check the roadmap to see what else is planned for Production Planner

2. Copy the app or create your own app from scratch using F0246 as inspiration.If you don't have the skills in house to do this, several of the partners can help.

That would be the pragmatic approach that covers you for now and for the future.

Hello jocelyn.dart,

As always, thank you for your valuable inputs!

For now, we have done what you have suggested in point 2 - we have copied the standard BSP app for F0246 into the customer's namespace and modified the code accordingly, to add the required fields into the app's filter bar (default view + FacetFilters).

Also, many thanks for providing the roadmap link. We will also raise this request as an incident to SAP as you have suggested, and check of we can have them provide an extension point for the filter area in any future release.

Regards

Saurabh
