Setup your SAP Web IDE on HANA Cloud Platform Part 4

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 5 parts:

part 1

  • 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 this part 😉
  • 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

The connection to our remote system is finished, now we can test it with a simple application 🙂

Reopen SAP Web IDE or refresh it if it’s already open
Click on File – New – Project from Template
Select for example the SAP Fiori Master Detail Application template from the SAP Fiori Application category and click on Next
Enter a name for the new project and click on Next
From the Service Catalog drop down list, choose the name of the server we have just defined. It’s GM6 in this example
Provide your credentials for that server
Wait until the entire list of services is loaded.
Start typing the name of a service to locate the one that you want, for example if you type “sra018” you should be able to find this service.
Fill out the form.
Click on Next and Finish
Run the new application: Open the webapp folder -> right-click on test.html -> Run -> Run as -> Web Application
It should work fine

But since the new SAP Web IDE Version, the Application will preview in Full Size Mode.
If you want the old preview, right click the project folder and choose Run -> Run Configurations.
Choose Web Application –> App in FLP Sandbox –> With Frame
Click Save and Run
Congratulations! We have now configured and tested our SAP Web IDE on HANA Cloud.
In the last part I will show you how you can deploy your application to your HCP Account and how you can register it to your HCP Launchpad.

    • Hi,

      which system you have used?

      At step "Wait until the entire list of services is loaded" did you get something?

      Or did you get no data when you preview the app? Did you get there an error or no data? It could be possible that you need a other username to "see" the data.



      (Cloud Connector is started without errors?)

  • Hi Claudia,

    Thanks for the effort in writing this.

    For me, everything is good and can create a Project out of the Fiori Master Data template.

    Instead of timesheet approval I searched for the good old flights gateway service.


    However, When I run the application, the "master" section displays "No entities". This is the same with the timesheet approval example you used.

    The sflight table has data .

    I guess if the WebIDE via cloud connector can detect the gateway services available, then it can also display the data and so I don't think there's an issue with the connectivity/integration points.

    Am I missing something here ?

    Thanks !

    • Hi Prem,

      I had this issue only with a "wrong" username. I can see and select the services during the creation, but when I run the app I cannot see any data...then I found the right user, and I got also data.

      Have you checked whether your username gets data for this services?



  • Hi Claudia,

    I have followed the previous 3 parts of your blog and configured everything as described.

    But when I try to access the system in WebIDE I get an error message

    "Unable to access the selected system. Check your credentials and try again...."

    However I did not even had the chance to enter user/password.

    When I try to import an existing Fiori Application from my system (Import->Application from  SAPUI5 ABAP Repository) the error message is the following:

    "Cannot select the system. Check the configuration for ABAP Development Tools"

    In the Cloud Connector system mapping I have chosen HTTP (using HTTPS gives an error). The Principal Type then is set to "Kerberos" automatically.

    The state is green.

    In the destination configuration of the Cloud Platform Cockpit I have tried any combination of Proxy Type and URL protocol (http vs. https). Nothing worked.

    Do you have any idea, where I could have set something wrong?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    Best regards,


    • Hi Jürgen,

      could it be possible that your browser have stored an old username/password ?

      But you aren't trying to use the system which I use?



      • Hi Claudi,

        thanks for your quick reply!

        I now found the error: The service for the ABAP Development Tools (/default_host/sap/bc/adt) in our system was not activated. After activating it, everythings works fine 🙂



  • Hallo Claudia,

    I have followed the previous 3 parts of your blog too and configured everything as described. I try to use one of our maintenance system. But like Jürgen I get the error message "Unable to access the selected system. Check your credentials and try again...."

    How can I get more information about what can be wrong?

    Best regards,


  • Hello Claudia,

    I have followed all the steps but before Data Connection step i don't see any pop-up for providing User ID & Password of the corresponding backend system. Hence moment i select my system from the service catalog it throws an error "Unable to access the selected system. Check your credentials and try again.If the problem persists, check if the odata service is available and contact your backend system administrator".

    Could you please help.
