When you open the app for the first time, the app will show you the above screen. You can complete the configuration in 2 different ways.
If you have received a configuration file link and guide from your admin, then follow the steps as per the guide
Else tap/click on the "Create Default Configuration" button that will load the default configuration.
If you are from Oracle 11i/R12 background, you can consider the default configuration the same as a vision instance installation; it will create all navigation paths with some sample charts, queries, and dashboard. For those from SAP ECC background, you can consider default configuration as an IDES installation.
If you tap/click on "Import Custom Configuration," then the app will take you to the below screen where you need to enter the configuration file path.
You can import the configuration file from your local folder (both on phones and on windows) or import it from an external server. Enter the path and tap/click on the corresponding button.
If you decide to upload the file to GitHub or any local server, make sure the get path sends the raw data. In the case of GitHub, share the raw file path, not the normal file path.
The app will ask for your confirmation. Click on Yes to start the configuration.
If you tap/click on "Create Default Configuration," then the app will take you to the below screen where you need to select the application name.
Tap/Click on the application name. If you want to configure both the applications, then tap/click on the "Configure Both" button.
The default configuration will load all the paths for Oracle Cloud Application and SAP Hana S/4 Cloud. Later, you can modify the configuration as per your business need. If you are responsible for configuration at your organization, you can configure all the forms, fields, charts, queries, etc. Export the configuration file and load it to a server (ex: github.com) from where all other users can import the configuration
Once the configuration is complete, the app will take you to the login screen.
The default configuration for both the applications (SAP & Oracle) can take up to 3-4 minutes. However, a custom configuration usually will take less time, depending upon the number of configurations the app needs to complete.
Default configuration times on some devices * Galaxy Fold 2 - 20 Seconds * Samsung Galaxy S7 - 110 Seconds * Nexus 10 - 130 Seconds * iPhone 11 - 80 Seconds * Windows 10 Pro OS (8GB RAM) - 35 Seconds

If you have used the default configuration, then the app will show a few demo instance details. You need to modify the instance details before trying to login. If you have used custom configuration, your admin would have configured all the required instances for you. So, you can ignore the below steps.
You can run the application in demo mode to preview all the menus, forms and configure various entities without using any username/password. To use the app in demo mode, select the demo instance on the login screen.
If you select the demo instance (or SAP sandbox instance), the app will remove the username and password fields. Click on the Sign-in button to login into the app in demo mode.
The app will take you to your default dashboard. You can select one of the sedded SAP/Oracle dashboards as your default dashboard in the settings screen.
You can click on any module icon to view all the menus/entities available in that module.
You can click on any menu to navigate to the corresponding search form. In demo mode, you cant search any data as the app is not connected to any instance. SAP provides a sandbox instance where anyone can view data from a test environment. You can use that instance to view all SAP related functionality without using your own instance. Unfortunately, Oracle does not provide any such features. So, you need to have access to an instance to test OneApp features with Oracle Cloud Application.
If you try to search any document in demo mode, the app will show you the above error message.
Click on the plus sign on the login page, and the app will take you to the instance search screen.

SAP Provides a sandbox instance that you can use to test OneApp without using your own environment. For Oracle, you need to have access to an instance. Till now, Oracle does not provide any feature similar to SAP Sandbox.But, Oracle provides several vision enviornments for testing. However, none of them are open and available only for customers with OPN account. So, if you have access to OPN, you can use any of those vision enviornment for testing.
To use SAP Sandbox, navigate to https://api.sap.com/ and register. The API key is available on all the pages.
Click on "Show API Key" button to view the API key. Copy it, and enter it in API Key field on OneApp instance screen. The default configuration comes with one instance (hana1) with the snadbox hostname details. If you dont use that instance then enter the hostname.

SAP Sandbox only allows to view data. So, you can't create/update/delete any record using sandbox instance
