Using Extensibility Options in SAP S/4HANA after system conversion


In this blog, we will find the Step-by-Step procedure to perform the addition of custom fields to SAP Fiori Applications and an SAP GUI transaction through the Extensibility features provided by SAP S/4HANA.

Example Scenario

As we know that after system conversion, the code used in Sales order transactions i.e Function modules code has been removed in SAP S/4HANA. Due to this a custom control field of Checkbox used in transactions VA01, VA02 and VA03 has been removed. There is a need for a new checkbox in transactions and the Sales Fiori app is also just like a custom control field.
