      Thank you so much or provided information.

      Unfortunately I couldn't utilize described destinations as Web IDE informed me about technical troubles. By the way, I went to desired result using SAP documentation available by the following link:

      Also I duplicate the info in case if the link becomes irrelevant:


      • NameWeb_IDE_PLUGIN
      • TypeHTTP
      • DescriptionBUILD Destination
      • URL
      • Proxy TypeInternet
      • AuthenticationNoAuthentication
      • WebIDEEnabled true
      • WebIDEUsage plugin_repository


      • NameBUILD_Production
      • TypeHTTP
      • Description: Destination for BUILD
      • URL
      • Proxy TypeInternet
      • AuthenticationNoAuthentication. You will be prompted for your BUILD user ID during import.
      • WebIDEEnabled true
      • WebIDEUsage BUILD/SPLASH

        Note that the WebIDEUsage property must be written in uppercase letters (ALL CAPS).

      Step 2 (Enable the BUILD-plugin in Web-IDE) no working

      When I select Repository: BUILD Destination I'm receiving the following message:

      Due to a technical issue we are currently unable to load this repository

      Is it a maintenance problem? Is there something I can do to avoid it?
