Use case: Enforcing naming conventions for groups, catalogs, and roles

Each set of the implemented SAP Fiori apps will require grouping them into the Fiori launchpad catalogs and groups. In projects with functional streams, a number of functional leads (3-7) come up with their set of groups depending on their stream users needs.

The consistent naming convention, that is shared between the streams, will speed up the process of dealing with catalogs and groups later when other team members, like the SAP Fiori developers or Basis specialists, start handing them in the process of support and maintenance.

To address that need Fiori Tracker has a function of enforcing the naming conventions. By default, it enforces a fixed prefix:

ZC_* for catalogs and ZG_* for groups.

It can be also set to enforce the stream linkage in the following form:

ZC_P2P_*, ZC_O2C_*.

All this enables speedy navigation in other tools like SAP Fiori designer. Entering a fixed prefix allows listing all custom catalogs and business groups. Extending it with the stream name limits the list to a particular stream which later, when different team members manage the catalog, proves to be very handy.
