FLP: Should we use CONF or CUST scope for Technical/Business catalogs

We are on S/4HANA 2020. The App Manager tool seems to be promoted a lot by SAP. But the problem is it only handles Technical Catalogs, not Business Catalogs, and only in CONF scopeSo we have to keep switching tools from app Manage to Content Manager every time we want to add a tile.

Up to now all our catalogs have been created in CUST scope, to avoid having to switch tools every time you want to do something.

So what is SAP's recommendation now (for a single-client systems):

1. Create all technical and Business catalogs in CONF scope. Use App Manager and Content Manager in CONF mode

2. Create Technical catalogs in CONF scope, Business catalogs in CUST mode. Use App Manager, and Content Manager in CUST mode.

Thanks

Since no one seems to even have an opinion on this subject, I think I'll accept my own answer, after quite a bit of research.

  • If you have multiple clients: maintain your Business Catalogs in Customizing scope (client-dependent)
  • If you have one-client systems: maintain your Business Catalogs in Configuration scope

That way you don't have to maintain multiple copies of the BC's, and keep copying from one client to another  after every change in development.

Hi Ramin, Best to just use client-specific for business catalogs in all cases. There's no advantage in using client-independent (CONF) scope here and if you have to add another client later for some reason you will lose flexibility. Also most of the really helpful features of Launchpad Content Manger are in the client-specific tool... which should be a clue in itself!
