How to Manually Install Fiori tools in Business Application Studio (BAS)

BAS features or extensions may vary slightly in different environments. If you need to use SAP Fiori tools but your BAS tenant hasn’t gotten it installed by default. In which case, no worry about it. You can install it manually by yourself.

Step 1: Download SAP Fiori tools Extensions

To download the extensions, please open each of the links SAP Fiori tools – XXX listed under Included Extensions in SAP Fiori Tools – Extension Pack:

Click on Download Extension and save each vsix folder in your local folder.

Unzip the folder that includes all the extensions.

Step 2: Upload Extension Artifacts to BAS

Then, you should upload the extension artifacts into the BAS dev space (where you had installed the Fiori generator and npm registry set to https://registry.npmjs.org/), here we provide one of the methods to upload them.

Start command SAP Business Application Studio: Import Project.

Choose the zip file you just provided.

Step 3: Install Extensions

To install extensions in the BAS dev space, start the command “Deploy Plugin by Id” and specify the path to vsix files.

In the input box, enter the path where you store the vsix files, for example: local-dir:/home/user/projects/Fiori Tools Extensions:

Once that’s done (it may take a few minutes), please check in the command palettes whether you see Fiori commands. If you see that, you can proceed to create a new Fiori app.

Step 4: Upgrade Extensions

You can follow the same progress to manually upgrade to newer versions.
