ES5 authorization issue - keeps on asking authorization in SAP Web IDE

0 Kudos

Hi Experts,

While trying to configure Data connection -> service url(ES5) in my SAP Web Ide , it keeps on asking for authorization.

It has been working previously but not sure all of a sudden why its behaving this way.

Also just to add, all my previous applications configured using ES5 are working fine. I'm facing issue while configuring odata for creating a new application

PS: I had configured the destination in SAP Cloudplatform cockpit , Selected "no authorization" too - - no luck.

I could login to web ide and sapes5.devcenter with same credentials smoothly.

Can you add a screenshot of your destination?

What about via the Service Catalog option? Does it work through there?

Hi Michal,

Thanks for your quick response.

Please find attached screenshot for ES5 destination configured in SAP Cloud Platform cockpit.

I had updated the "Authentication to No Authentication" recently...

Also, I couldnt see the ES5 destination selection from "Service Catalog" option mentioned

First, if you want it to appear in the Service Catalog option, you need to insert odata_abap in the WebIDEUsage property.

Second, if it worked for you before you set it to "NoAuthentication", then which user was configured in the destination?

When the browser pops-up the dialog for credentials, can you try entering another user?

Maybe your user was locked for too many failed logins?

Your destination seems configured properly.
