Troubleshooting SAP Web IDE Destination Issues


When experiencing destination connectivity problems, please follow the noted steps and include the results in your post.

Using Google Chrome clear the cache of your browser and reopen it.  Open Web IDE and prior to replicating your issue open the javascript console, if you are unsure about how to do, this steps can be found here.

Using one of the templates, File -> New ->  Project From Template, provide the necessary information up to the point of where you select your destination.  You may want to clear the console prior to selecting the destination, check the link for the steps.  After selecting the destination you should see an error displayed in the console.  Right click on the link in the console and choose Open link in New Tab.

At this point you should see an error within the browser window.  Provide this, your destination configuration and your HANA Cloud Connector configuration.

Common Errors…

Error: Cannot open tunnel with id account:///<USER ID>trial

Cause: Most likely the HANA Cloud connected is not connected or not running.

Error: Unable to open connection to backend system

Cause: Check the Internal Host name in the Cloud Connector

Error: Connection reset by peer

Cause: Check the protocol of the backend system in the Cloud Connector

Error: Access denied to resource /sap/opu/odata/IWFND/CATALOGSERVICE/$metadata on system…

Cause: Check the URL Path or Access Policy of the “Resources Accessible” of the connection in the Cloud Connector

Error: HTTP Status 500 – Could not connect to remote host

Cause: The destination url can not be accessed, maybe a typo or an incorrect Proxy Type

Error: Astaro Security Gateway….

Cause: Check the Proxy Type of the destination

  • Hi Jaime,

    My name is Deepti.I am facing an issue while connecting to the Hana Cloud connector.It says to install Microsoft Visual Studio,and when I try to install it is redirecting to Visual C++ redistributable SP1 2010.I am confused totally ,and not able to install visual studio and not able to Hana Colud Connector. Can you please guide me



    • Hi Deepti,

      You need to install the Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2010 runtime libraries which is the Visual C++ redistributable, not Visual Studio.



  • Hi Jamie,

    I did that.As the next thing when I try to run the SAP HANA Colud connector it is showing the following popup.


        I am trying to upload the image somehow it is not taking. but the message it says is

    Microsoft Visual Studio C++ 2010 SP1 redistributable is not installed.

  • Hy Jamie,

    I have managed to configure everything correctly (Cloud Connector and corresponding destination) in order to use an ODATA service from an ABAP Backend system. For the data connection, it looks like the Web IDE automatically tries to connect to the first available client of that system (001 in my case)? Is there any chance to specify which client the Web IDE will connect to?



      • Hi Nico,

        i face same problem and already added additional property "sap-client" to destination. It doesn't work.

        In Web-IDE when you choose New Project from Template ... Choose Data Connection ... where you choose your destination, i get the following error in the java-script console:

        GET https://webide-<removed>;v=2/$metadata 403 (Forbidden)

        When i test the given link, i get the error

        Access denied to system <removed>. In case this was a valid request, ensure to expose the system correctly in your SAP HANA Cloud connector.

        It's an OnPremise system.

        When i test it on HANA Cloud connector, everything is fine.

        If sap-client would work, everything would be fine. It seems that sap-client is ignored because there is another "default" mandant where i get this error message.

        Any ideas why sap-client is ignored or something i could have make wrong ?



        • Did you check the resource paths in the cloud connector?  If you are still experiencing issues please open a post with the information the blog details to provide.

  • Hi,

    I have performed a local installation of WebIDE (1.8.4) and created a new destination file under the directory "C:\SAPWebIDE\eclipse\config_master\service.destinations\destinations" named NorthWind. Here are the content



    Description=Northwind OData Service






    But this connection doesn't appear in the Data Connection screen - doesn't matter which ever application type I choose to create a new project from template from.

    Please help!

    Thanks in advance

  • Hi,

    should direct access work for the WEB IDE, too?!

    When trying: from outside SAP network I get a "ERR_CONNECTION_TIMED_OUT" on the index.html.

    I would assume that a WEB IDE on public address should work. Instead I don't get even index.html loaded or get any error message fom the IDE back.

    It would be realy cool if we can get this working from remote place without logging into SAP Network for Win8.1 devices such as any .corp address (or JAM)  is working now on Win8.1.

    Best regards

  • I am facing the following problem :

    Setup : HCP with HANA Cloud Connector and R/3 back-end system.

    Configured destination in the cockpit and when performing 'Check Connection', I get a success message.

    However, when opening the WebIDE console gives me following message :

    Destination 'R3_2' is either not a Web IDE destination or not valid because the WebIDEUsage or URL properties are missing in the destination settings.

    Check your destination settings in the SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit.

    Importing applications (FIORI) from back-end (was) working, but when executing, the flower icon kept turning or another error message was displayed.

    Connection type is internet/HTTP with following properties

    sap-client 500

    WebIDEEnabled true

    WebIDESystem RCK

    WebIDEUsage dev_abap,ui5_execute_abap,bsp_execute_abap,dev_gen,odata_abap

    Any ideas ?

  • Hi Jaime,

    My error is "Cannot select the system.Check the configuration for ABAP Development tools". Attaching the screen shot with console information. Can you please help me on this.


  • Hi All,

    I am getting the below error when I am trying to execute the custom app created through Web IDE 1.34.9 Version .

    HEAD 405 (Method Not Allowed)

    GET 504 (Gateway Timeout)

    followed by other error messages

    As per one of the solutions in other threads I had added the below two parameters in the to avoid the above to messages model.js




      ], function (JSONModel, Device) {

      "use strict";

      return {

      createDeviceModel : function () {

      var oModel = new JSONModel(Device);


      oModel.useBatch =  false;

      oModel.disableHeadRequestForToken = true;

      return oModel;





    oModel.useBatch =  false;
    oModel.disableHeadRequestForToken = true;

    Even after adding the above parameters the issue is not resolved .

    I am getting the below error now.

    HEAD 500 (Internal Server Error)

    GET 504 (Gateway Timeout)

    Followed by other errors.
