What is...?

  • SAP Web Integrated Development Environment (or SAP Web IDE) is a next-generation cloud-based meeting space where multiple project stakeholders can work together from a common web interface - connecting to the same shared repository with virtually no setup required. It includes multiple interactive features that allow you to collaborate with your colleagues and accelerate the development of your HTML5/UI5 applications.
  • SAP HANA Cloud Platform is the in-memory Platform-as-a-Service offering from SAP, which enables customers and developers to build, extend, and run applications on SAP HANA in the cloud. With flexible subscription models and optional services for apps, database, and infrastructure, it provides instant access to the full power of SAP HANA.

This is the complete landscape of our model: let’s spend some words about it.

  1. SAP Web IDE is in the cloud: it reads the destination we define in the SAP HANA Cloud Cockpit. You may have several destinations for different scopes.
  2. After reading a destination, SAP Web IDE looks for the virtual system specified and tries to get the real system by examining the Access Controls specified in the SAP HANA Cloud Connector installed on the user’s local machine.
  3. Any Access Control in the SAP HANA Cloud Connector points to one or more resources in the physical external system. This system can be an ABAP system or any other with OData capabilities.


  • You need a valid account on the portal (you can use your SCN password!).
  • You will also need your SCN password. If you don't know it, here you can reset it.
  • In the next part you will install the HANA Cloud Connector. This software, at moment, is only available for 64bit platforms, so before you continue with this guide ensure you are in the proper condition. Please check also the prerequisites of it.
  • Be sure to have your Internet browser up to date.
