Need an ability to provide access to the end user to access Mobile application

We are currently working on a POC to develop an offline mobile application using MDK and then deploying the app to Mobile services.

We have downloaded SAP mobile services client from the app store and are able to test the demo application that we created for this POC .
However we have questions on setting up authentication for this app and also trying to find a way to give access to this app to the end users .
Our understanding is the SAP mobile services client which we downloaded from the app store is for development/testing purposes and its a 1:1 mapping between a client and an app metadata definition. Simple put, we cannot ask our users to use this on their device as it will only cater to one application at a time.
We explored the option of building a MDK SDK client using the tutorial mentioned in the link below. however running into multiple errors when we are performing the steps.
https://developers.sap.com/tutorials/cp-mobile-dev-kit-build-client.html#ab1b8b7b-5315-4d7c-b8a6-8a3...

Can we please get some guidance

As per the tutorial I managed to unzip the file but when proceeding with step2 i.e. to run MDK_Dependencies_Installer is where I am getting stuck. mdk-installer-error.png >> Did you already check the troubleshoot guide as per the note mentioned at towards end of step1 ? Did it help?

Thankyou for your response Jitendra.

I couldn't get very far with the troubleshooting guide but after a lot of trial and error it looks like this might have to do with the fire wall settings in my company. I am still trying ways to make it work, but I really appreciate you getting back to me. I love reading your blogs, thankyou for all the help you provide!

Thankyou Bill,

I downloaded the Mobile development kit client from this link. Release 6.1.1

As per the tutorial I managed to unzip the file but when proceeding with step2 i.e. to run MDK_Dependencies_Installer is where I am getting stuck. mdk-installer-error.png

I have attached the file here showing the window that it opens when I click the installer with a blank error window with just the close button on it, which is why I am not able to troubleshoot it further.

On going further on the SDK installer steps in the same tutorial I get error message when running

"create-client.cmd". This command fails saying some files are missing.

Please let me know if I can provide anymore details.

Can you please elaborate a bit more on your question?

  1. Where you are getting stuck in the tutorial?
  2. What version of MDK are you using?
  3. Are you building for iOS, Android, Both?

The other alternative is to look at using Cloud Build Service to create your client. See this tutorial for more information Build Your Mobile Development Kit Client Using Cloud Build Service
