As you already know that SAP recently announced the launch of SAP Mobile Start – a native mobile app that serves as an entry point for users to access various applications and contents. You can use the SAP Document Management iOS application to connect to SAP Mobile Start. With this use the deep link URLs to launch documents and folders directly through emails or through the link that you shared in any mode.

For detailed information on the SAP Mobile Start, read this blog post.

Business Use Case:

In case you want to provide access to the important documents or folders to all your users, you can configure a direct URL to that document or a folder in SAP Cloud Portal Service (Standard Plan) or SAP Launchpad Service (Trial Plan). In the SAP Mobile Start, it can be made available to all users whom you would like to share it with. To accomplish this, it is necessary to follow some configurations that I have explained in the following sections.

Before you start, kindly request you to meet the following preparatory steps:


  1. You have successfully set up the Cloud Portal Service. For more information, follow the steps mentioned in this help portal link.

  2. You have successfully configured the SAP Mobile Start and configured content in the SAP Launchpad Service. For more information on the setup, see the Configuration Guide.

  3. Use the Cloud Portal Service – Site Manager - Content Manager to onboard the SAP Document Management iOS application on the dashboard. For more information, see Integrate Apps and Shell Plugins.


Step 1: Onboarding SAP Document Management  iOS Application

Navigate to the Site Manager - Content Manager in the SAP Cloud Portal Service.

Navigating to Content Manager

Add the following details while you are adding an application to the Cloud Portal Service.

  1. Title - All My Documents

  2. URL to Launch App - “docmanagement://

  3. URL to install App - “

All My Documents Application


Note: You can also give the path to a specific folder under the URL to launch the app.
i.e. docmanagement://v1/open?rep=e9bd7beb-2201-43b4-a672-74115cbe9101&obj=flrv_wjx47bd6pYt1_ZitkPr8SCuOR1...

Step 2: Create Role and Group in Site Manager - Content Manager.

In this section, you will have to create a role and group and then assign the onboarded SAP Document Management application to a defined role and group as well.

Step 3: Add Application to the Role that You Created.
