XOVP for Fiori

XOVP is a plug and play dashboard app which enables us to create Overview Pages/Dashboards without writing any UI code. We do not need WebIDE to create OVPs. The XOVP admin app provides a simple view to create the dashboards.

Each dashboard can be assigned to different user groups through catalogs. And each card can be mapped to respective fields. You can choose from more than 13 card types and use them in your dashboard.

Navigation from XOVP to other Fiori Apps is much simpler than before. With simple configurations, we can enable the drill down to other Fiori Apps.

And built in i18n model enables us to support multinational users again without leaving the admin app.

Create your OData service as per your business need and create OVP dashboard with simple clicks.

The following table shows differences between standard OVP and XOVP.
