In this and the next Blogs I will show you how you can set up your SAP Web IDE on Hana Cloud. I cut this in 5 parts:


part 1

  • Opening SAP Web IDE for the first time
  • Entering the Git User Settings
part 2
  • Installing and configuring the HANA Cloud Connector
part 3 this part :wink:
  • Connecting to the remote system
part 4
  • Test the SAP Web IDE
part 5
  • Enable your HCP Fiori Launchpad
  • Register your App to the HCP Launchpad
part 6 (old part 5)
  • Deploy your application to the ABAP Repository
  • Test your application at the ABAP system
  • Import your application from SAP Gateway to SAP Web IDE

In the part 2 we have configured our SAP HANA Cloud Connector with a virtual server pointing to a given real server. This was pretty easy to do: now we have to say to our SAP Web IDE to point to the virtual server we have created, mapping to it all the related resources. We are going to setup, in the SAP HANA Cloud Cockpit, a new destination: this destination will give to the SAP Web IDE, the information about where to look for the specified backend.

Since you want to use the paths “/sap/opu/odata”, “/sap/bc/adt” and “/sap/bc/ui5_ui5”, you need to specify the usages odata_abap, dev_abap and ui5_execute_abap according to the table in the previous part.

Connecting remote system

From the HANA Cloud cockpit click on the left side on the link Destinations

Click on New Destination

Enter the following parameters and click on Save


Then click on New Property

Add the following new additional parameters:


When finished click on Save

At the end you should have the following situation

Pay attention to the fact that:

  • the WebIDEUsage is a concatenation of some of the usages taken from the table at the previous part: just the ones we want to include in our
  • the URL is not really the address of the real server, but it’s just the name of a virtual server.

If you have reached this point, you might want to know if your system is really working or not. Let’s test it by creating a new SAP Fiori App that will consume the OData services provided by our GM6 backend. See part 4 :smile:
