Create a new application in Management cockpit and configure the application settings as given below:
Define backend connection. I am using an existing Odata service from Gateway trial system: http://sapes1.sapdevcenter.com:8080/sap/opu/odata/iwbep/gwdemo/
Under Authentication tab create a new security called “SAPSecurity” >Click on New and choose “HTTP/HTTPS Authentication”. Provide the Odata URL: http://sapes1.sapdevcenter.com:8080/sap/opu/odata/iwbep/gwdemo/ . Choose Control as “Required“.
The security profile defines server authentication during user on boarding.
Finally Save the application. Select the application created and click on “ping”, that should give a success message. The created application details are used during development of native app.
