Stop spending hours editing Excel sheets to maintain the SAP Fiori Launchpad catalog and role assignments

Typically each S/4 HANA implementation has a number of huge Excel sheets containing application details and its assignments to catalogs, groups, and roles. Unfortunately, these sheets get often out of sync causing most of the parts not to be up-to-date. Once they are out of date handling any catalog or role hanges becomes a nightmare.

That is how typical Excel sheet for grouping and catalog assignments for SAP Fiori Launchpad applications looks like

As SAP Fiori developer or SAP basis specialist who, in most cases, is in charge of provisioning Fiori launchpad changes, you are the one responsible for keeping apps in order. You have two choices: either spend the time maintaining spreadsheets, or spend even more time discussing, with project team members, how to maintain them so they can come up with consistent requests for changes. Either way – you end up spending more time on not doing what you are specialized in, which can be very frustrating.

Fiori Tracker takes away this repetitive, administrative task by presenting how the existing apps are linked with the existing catalogs and what impact the changes will have to the catalogs. You get the view on the history of the changes that get logged with date and time stamp each time the change is made.
