Here is the Video for this blog based on SAP S/4HANA 1909 FPS0 (Not SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS1 but process is similar):
The blog is based on SAP Note 3132689 – Composite SAP note: Rapid Activation for SAP Fiori in SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS01 Please use the blog only as a reference and follow the actual note which may have been updated.
Please find the rough sketch of steps. There are 3 sets of steps that are separated by thick line. Activate Enterprise Search (A) is kicked off and while it is running, you can do steps in group (B). And after enterprise search task is completed you can do tasks in group (C).
TIP: For notes applicable to other releases, please check the SAP Note 2902673 – Rapid Activation for SAP Fiori in SAP S/4HANA – Overview
In this blog the text is shown in this COLOR it is for selection and copy/paste
(A) Enter tCode SPAM - button Package Level, tab (1) Installed Product Versions, Check the below Product versions are installed – (2) SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS1 or higher and (3) SAP FIORI FOR S/4HANA 2021 FPS1 SAP FIORI FRONT-END SERVER 2021 SPS01.
(B) The S/4HANA system has to be with embedded Fiori deployment as per SAP Note 3132689 – Composite SAP note: Rapid Activation for SAP Fiori in SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS01
(C) Ensure that SGEN is already completed on the system
(D) Proper ICF/ICM setup including FQDN
(E) Ensure the system is configured for SSL
icm/server_port_0 = PROT=HTTP,PORT=80$$,PROCTIMEOUT=600,TIMEOUT=600 icm/server_port_1 = PROT=HTTPS,PORT=443$$,PROCTIMEOUT=600,TIMEOUT=600 icm/server_port_2 = PROT=SMTP,PORT=25000,TIMEOUT=180
(F) Suggested memory parameters. The strategy here is to double the memory parameter until runtime errors do not occur any more. You can reset back these memory parameters after activation. You can copy and paste lines into instance profile.

In Work client, enter tCode STC01 – SAP_ESH_INITIAL_SETUP_WRK_CLIENT
TIP: All tasklists in this blog are to be performed in the work client
(A) Select Models to Create Connectors” - specify software component for search models: SAPAPPLH
(B) Leave default at SAP Use SAP HANA Primary DB Connection : DEFAULT
Execute task and select Background, the job will run for 1.5 Hours or more (New Installation on S/4HANA with approved hardware and Software Component SAPAPPLH only before data migration).
If you get error – Internal session terminated with a runtime error PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE (see ST22) please refer Note 2149849 – Runtime error PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE on ESH software component update which refers Note 147568 – PXA_NO_FREE_SPACE Ensure PXA value in SAP profile abap/buffersize is enhanced, e.g. to 2.500.000 kB (Documentation)
TIP: While the Activate Enterprise Search task list is in progress in background you can do the activities form STEP 3 – 8 in parallel. The Fiori Content Activation task list should be done after the enterprise search is completed.
After task completion, the screen should look like this:
Please install Note 1322182 – Memory consumption of ABAP Shared Objects
Enter tCode SU25, Make sure Step 1 “Initially fill the Customer Tables” has been at least executed two times. If date/time entry for this step is empty, click on the step and press execute (with default settings). Ref Note 440231 – SU25 | FAQ: Upgrade postprocessing for Profile Generator

Execute the same procedure second time and get the numbers as below. It is verified that below screenshow is correct.
Ensure logical client is assigned to target client in SCC4
Execute manual steps as per SAP Note 2289865 – Configuration steps for S/4HANA Analytics as shown below in work Client 100.
Check that note is applied as per STEP 1 – SAP Note 2510134 – Fiori Setup: Updates for task lists for Gateway/Fiori configuration
enter tCode STC01 – SAP_GW_FIORI_ERP_ONE_CLNT_SETUP
After task completion which takes about 20 seconds, the screen should look like this
Check that Note is applied as per STEP 1 – SAP Note 2712785 – Fiori Setup: Initial Setup for Fiori Applications S/4
In Work Client, enter tCode STC01 – SAP_FIORI_FOUNDATION_S4 This task list activates (1) ICF Nodes (2) ODATA Services required for WebGUI and other generic Fiori launchpad features, (3) Initializes classic UI technologies, (4) Generates working SAP Fiori launchpad user admin roles including composite roles.
Please run this task in Foreground so its easy to handle if error occurs in next screen. For the task Set Fiori 3 as default theme – by default Belize theme is activated. To switch to Fiori 3 theme go to change mode and open the task UI to set the overwrite flag and save. The difference between the two themes is below:
After tasks are completed, the screen should look like below.
Enable Analysis Path Framework (APF) apps, by adding a missing authorization via transaction PFCG edit role Z_FLP_USER – change button, Authorizations tab, Change Authorization Data button, (1) Click Manually, (2) Add Auth Object /UIF/LREP . Edit - /UIF/ROLE = select using checkmark APFUSER and Save (3) Generate and go back.
Similarly add below to Admin profile Z_FLP_ADMIN – Add Auth Object /UIF/LREP - Edit /UIF/ROLE = select using checkmark APFADMIN and Save. Generate and go back.
There are some additional task lists under Automatic Activation of Embedded-Deployed SAP Fiori as mentioned in the note 3132689.
Task Lists are /UIF/SCHEDULE_LREP_JOB and Task list /UI2/FLP_HEALTH_CHECKS
In case you get error below for task list /UI2/FLP_HEALTH_CHECKS this has been reported and we are awaiting solution.
Add role Z_FIORI_FOUNDATION_ADMIN and role Z_FLP_ADMIN to a test user.
Test using tcode /UI2/FLP or directly via url: https://vhcals4hci.dummy.nodomain:44300 /sap/bc/ui5_ui5/ui2/ushell/shells/abap/FioriLaunchpad.html
You should get screen below: Click on the (1) Icon on top right and select (2) App Finder, you should get screen below
From Fiori app reference library identify relevant business roles for activation. We will select all roles for the sandbox but you can restrict to only the required roles.
Select All apps for SAP S/4HANA = by Back-End Product = SAP S/4HANA
IMPORTANT TIP: In case you want to select all the Roles for certain scope items activated like BKP, 1Z3, 3QD, 1GA…. etc then click on the filter icon shown above and select the Scope Items.
(A) Select all (or alternatively you can select the roles you need), (B) Aggregate, (C) SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS1, (D) Down Arrow, (E) Download
Click on Export list of Business Roles (536 roles for SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS1 currently) and save the list as csv file. The number of roles may be different as new roles may be added or old ones deprecated.
Split the list of roles into lists with number of roles limit around 160. Also prepare separate list for roles with presteps. So you must have at least 4-5 lists of roles that you want to use for next step considering you want to activate all roles.
TIP: In case you have selected below roles, you may find it convenient to remove the below roles and activate them separately as they need some pre-steps.ROLE COMMENT SAP_FND_BCR_MANAGER_T SAP_HCMFAB_BCR_EMPLOYEE_T SAP_HCMFAB_BCR_MANAGER_T SAP_MDG_BCR_APPROVER_T SAP_MDG_BCR_REQUESTOR_T RESOLUTION: Activate using task list SAP_FIORI_FCM_CONTENT_ACTIVATION SAP_BR_PA_REPRESENTATIVE Service: NPA_BILLINGEXCPTN_SRV 1 failed / ICF Node: not available RESOLUTION: Please do not use this role SAP_BR_BUSINESS_ANALYST_IOG SAP_BR_DEFERMENT_ANALYST_IOG SAP_BR_FC_ANALYST_PROD_IOG SAP_BR_FIELD_OPERATOR_IOG SAP_BR_FORECAST_MANAGER_IOG SAP_BR_FORECAST_SPECIALIST_IOG SAP_BR_HYDROCARBON_ANALYST_IOG SAP_BR_PROD_DATA_SPEC_IOG SAP_BR_BILLING_CLERK_IOG SAP_BR_INVENTORY_MANAGER_IOG SAP_BR_PRICING_SPECIALIST_IOG SAP_BR_SUPPLYCHAIN_MANAGER_IOG SAP_BR_SHIPPING_SPECIALIST_IOG SAP_BR_TERMINAL_OPERATOR_IOG SAP_BR_TRANSP_SCHDLR_IOG
Activation will be skipped with warning if Business Function/Switch is not enabled
RESOLUTION: Activate Business Function as per SAP Note 3132689 – Composite SAP note: Rapid Activation for SAP Fiori in SAP S/4HANA 2021 FPS01
The activation of all the business functions required for these roles take long time in the range of 16 hours
TIP: In case you get typical error message like for example – Service: C_SRVCCONTRFINQUERY_2_CDS 1 failed / ICF Node: not available. For detailed analysis activate failed service manually with transaction /IWFND/MAINT_SERVICE, please follow steps as below:
Enter tCode /n/IWFND/MAINT_SERVICE
Enter (1) Technical Service Name as C_SRVCCONTRFIN*, (2) Checkmark on Co-Deployed, (3) Click on Get Services, (4) Select the service C_SRVCCONTRFINQUERY_2_CDS and then click on (5) Add Selected Services
Click on Local Object.
TIP: You should prepare your own list of roles. I have prepared a list of roles for S/4HANA releases that is shared in the link. There are 2 files for roles that were downloaded from Fiori App Library – the second list contains roles that require presteps. All these lists are available also in a spreadsheet S4HANA2021FPS1_FioriRapidActivation_BusinessRoles.xls
The first list S4HANA2021FPS1_FioriRapidActivation_BusinessRoles_List1.txt contains 513 roles and you can activate all of them together in an hour. The second list has first 5 roles that have to be activated using task list SAP_FIORI_FCM_CONTENT_ACTIVATION. And there are some that need Business Function/Switch to be activated.
TIP: Before scheduling Content Activation task list ensure that task list for Activate Enterprise Search from STEP 2 is completed.
Check that note is applied as per STEP 1 – SAP Note 2686456 – Fiori Setup: Content Activation for SAP Business Roles
In Work Client, enter tCode STC01 – SAP_FIORI_CONTENT_ACTIVATION
The 513 roles in SAP S4HANA 2021 FPS1 as you see below have many country specific roles like SAP_BR_AA_ACCOUNTANT_JP , etc. There are 12 roles just with *_JP. So don’t try to activate all roles as they are country specific and industry specific. We strongly recommend to customers to do a conscious decision about the role scope to be activated.
In the first task, (A) checkmark first task, (B) Click on Parameter and paste the list into the box that pops up, click on OK (Continue) at the bottom of the Define Business Roles” dialog window, and then click on (C) execute.
After clicking OK for the first task, if there are errors as below, please remove the roles that have no SAP Business Role and move the others into list that requires presteps and handle them separately.
Please see below for triggering activation of 513 roles:
Please note that there are 5 roles which are to be activated using task list STC01 – SAP_FIORI_FCM_CONTENT_ACTIVATION
TIP NO 1: Run the task list above in background (use menu option). While the task list is running, please check dumps in ST22 in separate session.
TIP NO 2: If all ODATA/SICF are activated for the first time, each group of about 150 roles takes about one hour +. But if you get an error and then you reactivate the same list it should be done in few minutes. If some ODATA services are already activated the time required should be reduced accordingly.
TIP NO 3: TIME SAVING TECHNIQUE – Once you have the list of roles, you can split the roles into multiple lists like say if you have 200 roles, split them into 2 sets of 100 roles. You can then create 2 separate sessions and run the task list. Keeping the number of roles in these 2 sessions unequal will help to know the session, like keep 98 roles in first session and 102 helps to distinguish them. I had to increase the parameter abap/shared_objects_size_MB = 512 to 768 to run parallel session. Alternatively you can set the automatic memory parameter PHYS_MEMSIZE.
TIP NO 4: After activating a role like for example SAP_BR_AP_MANAGER, if the ODATA/SICF are already activated, the delta role SAP_BR_AP_MANAGER_US takes much shorter time as some services are already activated. So as a result your subsequent lists will take lesser time than earlier ones.
TIP NO 5: If you get error first time, please try with same list second time and some errors may go away. Like the below list of errors reduced to no errors for second run. One of the reasons for this is – the service activation is a generation and can finish successfully later on after the logs show error. So on retry the activation finished successfully.
TIP NO 6: For the subsequent activation run, if you get error Not enough shared memory exists , you can clear the shared memry in tCode SHMM. If you dont have access to SHMM or if there is possibility of impacting other users and processes, easiest way is to logout and login. If this does not work, double the parameter abap/shared_objects_size_MB = 512 as per Note 2766677 – Not enough shared objects memory exists, will require SAP bounce.
At the end of activation you should see result as below:
Please ensure that web dispatcher is setup correctly and working as it will be required before users can use the applications by logging in through the web dispatcher.
TIP: As a Post Activation step you can revert back Memory Parameters that were temporarily increased for activation.
You can open OSS messages using component BC-INS-TC-CNT Please mention the SAP Fiori UI software components
There is a transport capability added to the Fiori launchpad content manager task list S AP_FIORI_FCM_CONTENT_ACTIVATION
