Connect the SAPWebIDE On-Premise to your SAP Gateway system On-Premise

Hi,

Hopefully you all have successfully installed the SAPWebIDE On-Premise. If not, follow the previous blog:

Start with the SAP Web IDE On-Premise

The SAPWebIDE has some really nice wizards. But if you want to use these wizards you’ll need a connection to your gateway system. You’ll also need this connection to deploy your application to your SAP Gateway system.

Configuration steps:

1) Navigate to C:\SAPWebIDE\eclipse\config_master\service.destinations\destinations

     – If the path does not exists, just create the folders manually

2) Create a new file without extension and call it the same as your SAP Gateway system ID

3) Open the created file with a texteditor

4) Add the following configruation

#ServiceDestination

Description=Gateway Description                                      <– Description

Type=HTTP                                                                     <– Connectiontype

TrustAll=true                                                                   

Authentication=NoAuthentication                                       <– Authenticationtype

WebIDEUsage=odata_abap,ui5_execute_abap,dev_abap    <– described in the SAP Documentation

Name=SYSID                                                                  <– name of destination

URL=http\://0.0.0.0\:8000                                                  <– host and port of SAP Gateway OnPremise

ProxyType=OnPremise                                                  

WebIDESystem=SYSID                                                   <– system ID

WebIDEEnabled=true                                                       <– enable destination for SAPWebIDE

sap-client=100                                                                  <– SAP Gateway client

Follow this well explained tutorial for creating a destination in the SAPWebIDE:

Enjoy the tutorial and in the next blog we’ll use this destination in the SAPWebIDE to create our custom Fiori application. So stay tuned!

Generate your custom Fiori application with SAPWebIDE On-Premise using Gateway On-Premise

Kind regards,

Wouter

      Hi Jitendra Kansal

      We actually use basic authentication. The browser that you use to run the SAPWebIDE will ask you to login to your gateway system.

      In the destination, we say "NoAuthentication" but it wil ask you to login.

      After you deployed your custom fiori application to your gateway system. You could configure it to use the fiori login page instead of a basic login browser popup:

      Create Custom SAP FIORI Login Page

      I wanted to try with BasicAuthentication to access Odata service as i have done with HANA cloud at step #9

      How to use OData service exposed via Integration Gateway (on-premise) with SAP Web IDE Cloud

      I think you could just reuse the same configuration. But instead of using the virtual url of your cloud connector, you will have to use the real url to your gateway system.

      Hi,

      We have tried to simulate your issue by doing a clean install. When we follow all the steps in the blog, we have our system in the dropdown list.

      Could you check the following points:

      Did you delete the descriptions before copying the settings?

      What is the extension of your destination file? It should have no extension.

      Is the name of the destination file and the name of your destination the same?

      Do you have connection to your gateway system? maybe your vpn is not active?

      Could you post the content of your destination file?

      Kind regards,

      Wouter

      Hi Wouter,

      Thanks a lot for your kind help and time on my previous question

      cannot deploy my application to SAPUI5 ABAP Repository - HTTP 500 error found.

      After I follow your suggestion by figuring out the correct host name and port number of my onpremise system and fix the destination configuration file, the issue is gone. I was able to connect to my gateway system now.

      Unfortunately when I continue with my project creation, I was in surprise since I could see my needed OData collection in metadata response however it is just missing in Odata collection drop down list in project creation wizard. I post a new question

      Cannot select the needed OData collection from drop down list in WebIDE

      I just would like to check with you, whether you have meet with similar issue before.

      Thanks a lot for your kind support so far, I really appreciated 🙂

      Best regards,

      Jerry

      Hi Benedick,

      I think that your user is missing some authorizations on your gateway system. Not sure which role you need.. I used sap all 🙂 Maybe you could do a authorization trace with ST01

      Kind regards,

      Wouter

      Hi Juan,

      Can you please look at the Network in the browser's console and copy the response of the request to get the discovery?
      Are you able to get the discovery.xml via the browser? (the call is for /sap/bc/adt/discovery)

      What if you use service url? Can you check debugging? Maybe not all service in your system are activated...
