2672494 - How to create a FLP@EP custom Bootstrap plugin


  • You wish to create a custom SAPUI5 Fiori Bootstrap plugin to appear on the Fiori Launchpad on Enterprise Portal (for example, to display a custom message box or manipulate tiles at runtime) at certain events. It is not clear how this should be performed.
  • The following events are supported under the Fiori Framework Page:
    • LOAD_TILE_CATALOG -> Events will be triggered while the Tile Catalog (App Finder) is loaded
    • LOAD_HOMEPAGE -> Events will be triggered while the Fiori Launchpad is loaded
    • ADD_TILE -> Events will be triggered while a tile is added
    • EP_VIEWER_ACTIONS -> (EP tiles only) Custom events can be used to add buttons to the menu bar, footer bar etc. once the application gets loaded
    • CUSTOM_EP_RESOLVER -> (EP tiles only) This extension performs an action on the URL of the application that is launched
  • You may be receiving the following error in the JavaScript developer console:
    "Plugin CustomBootstrapPlugin cannot get registered, because the module mechanism for plugins is not valid anymore. Plugins need to be defined as SAPUI5 components. -"
