      2016-09-07 11_06_44-SAP Web IDE.jpg

      But i have configured everything according to the web ide documentation.

      i have checked the prerequisites as in


      and i see that i meet the requirements without any additional note as my system ahs the SAP_BASIS component 7.5


      When i checked the sicf tcode for the /sap/bc/adt node. it doesnt have any discover.xml subnode and when i try to acces it over url, i get the error This resource does not exist.

      Please guide me on fixing this issue.

      Thanks & Regards,
