Hi All,

Today, I am going to discuss my experience with SAP Fiori Elements (Analytical List Report/Object Page) as I had done. In this blog series we will cover the introduction of SAP Fiori Elements (Analytical List Page/Object Page) and we will develop a basic Analytical List Page/Object Page application using CDS views and Annotations.

1. Introduction-

  • SAP Fiori elements provide designs for UI patterns and predefined templates for common application use cases.

  • SAP Fiori elements (formerly known as smart templates) provide a framework for generating UIs at runtime based on metadata annotations and predefined templates for the most used application patterns.

  • The Analytical List Page offers a unique way to analyze data step by step from different perspectives, to investigate a root cause through drilldown, and to act on transactional content. All this can be done seamlessly within one page.

  • The Analytical List Page is just a combination of transaction data and analytical chart data.
