3241708 - How to avoid flex requests for particular html5 module in mta app hosted in CF


Create a custom tile in the FLP module and would like to avoid the requests to /flex/personalization/v1/data and /keyuser/flex/keyuser/v1/data/



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a MTA app with multiple HTML5 apps
  2. Add a FLP module in this MTA
  3. Build and deploy this MTA app to the CF
  4. Access the Fiori Launchpad Runtime
  5. Open one of the app inside this custom Fiori Launchpad, it will send out two requests: /flex/personalization/v1/data and /keyuser/flex/keyuser/v1/data/


If the manifest states the application type is "application",  the SAPUI5 core interpreting this as a full blown application with all consequences.

The SAPUI5 client sees an application and within the portal/launchpad services, every application needs these requests.


1. Open the manifest.json of the app

2. Change the type to component, here is an example:

"": {

"id": "<id>",

"type": "component",

"i18n": "<i18nPathRelativeToManifest>",

"applicationVersion": {

"version": "<version>"


3. Rebuild and deploy the app to CF again
