How to create an SAP package

4 years ago · 1 MIN READ


This post will outline with as many photos as possible how to create a package in your SAP system. We need packages to create new SAP UI5 applications but also tiles, catalogs and groups for our SAP Fiori Launchpad.

Login and navigate to SE80

Login to SAP Logon and navigate to the transaction SE80. SE80 will generally have open the last thing that you were working on.

Select 'package' from the dropdown

Following clicking on the green tick you will be prompted to assign the package to a transport request:

Finally click the green tick and your package has been created, assigned to a TR and ready to move through your landscape.


That's it! a package has been created and we can now assign that package to our custom UI5 developments as well as things such as our Tiles, Catalogs and groups in the Fiori Launchpad designer.

This was a really quick blog on SAP things that you might need to know when being a UI5/ Fiori applications developer.
