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 6 parts:


part 1 this part 😉

  • Opening SAP Web IDE for the first time
  • Entering the Git User Settings
part 2
  • Installing and configuring the HANA Cloud Connector
part 3
  • 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

What is…?

  • SAP Web Integrated Development Environment (or SAP Web IDE) is a next-generation cloud-based meeting space where multiple project stakeholders can work together from a common web interface – connecting to the same shared repository with virtually no setup required. It includes multiple interactive features that allow you to collaborate with your colleagues and accelerate the development of your HTML5/UI5 applications.
  • SAP HANA Cloud Platform is the in-memory Platform-as-a-Service offering from SAP, which enables customers and developers to build, extend, and run applications on SAP HANA in the cloud. With flexible subscription models and optional services for apps, database, and infrastructure, it provides instant access to the full power of SAP HANA.

This is the complete landscape of our model: let’s spend some words about it.

  1. SAP Web IDE is in the cloud: it reads the destination we define in the SAP HANA Cloud Cockpit. You may have several destinations for different scopes.
  2. After reading a destination, SAP Web IDE looks for the virtual system specified and tries to get the real system by examining the Access Controls specified in the SAP HANA Cloud Connector installed on the user’s local machine.
  3. Any Access Control in the SAP HANA Cloud Connector points to one or more resources in the physical external system. This system can be an ABAP system or any other with OData capabilities.

Prerequisites

  • You need a valid account on the https://account.hanatrial.ondemand.com portal (you can use your SCN password!).
  • You will also need your SCN password. If you don’t know it, here you can reset it.
  • In the next part you will install the HANA Cloud Connector. This software, at moment, is only available for 64bit platforms, so before you continue with this guide ensure you are in the proper condition. Please check also the prerequisites of it.
  • Be sure to have your Internet browser up to date.

    Hi Claudia,

    We are trying to setup our Web IDE on a HANA XS local installation. Unlike in the Cloud version we cannot find a “HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit” where everything (e.g. Git Service) is turned on/off and configured.

    Our Basis Admin who set everything up found quite a lot of reading material but Hana Platform Cockpit is no where mentioned and “HANA Cockpit” seems to be different.

    Best regards,

    Denis
