Updates for SAP Fiori 3

The SAP Fiori Design Guidelines now incorporate core elements of SAP Fiori 3: product-wide UX consistency rules, designing for intelligent systems, and the new Quartz Light theme.

Key SAP Fiori 3 updates include:

UX Consistency

Designing Intelligent Systems

Fully-Revised Design Stencils

We’ve completely revised the entire stencil set to reflect SAP Fiori 3. In addition to Axure RP stencils, we now also offer Sketch design stencils for Mac users.

All topics in the following sections have been updated to reflect the SAP Fiori 3 design and the Quartz Light theme:

  • Foundation
  • SAP Fiori Launchpad
  • Layouts and Floorplans

In upcoming releases, we will successively update the content for the General Concepts and UI Elements sections.

About Guideline Updates

With each new guideline version, we deliver two types of update:

  • Updates to reflect new or changed UI controls available with the latest SAPUI5 release.
  • Ongoing updates on how to best apply the SAP Fiori design (such as overarching concepts, floorplans, and additional decision support). These updates are introduced with a given guideline version, but are not necessarily dependent on a specific SAPUI5 version.

Note: Our policy is to update only the latest guideline version. If you are working with an earlier SAPUI5 release, also consider checking out the most recent guideline version to get the latest general guidance.
