This blog was written to walk you through the creation of a BASIC Apple SWIFT mobile application and integrate it with the SAP Hana Cloud Platform Mobile Services ( HCPms )

We won’t go into many complex details in this blog, we will keep it very very simple. The point is to provide you with an understanding on how a SWIFT application and HCPms can work together.

This first part of the series will walk you though how to create a new application within HCPms

LOG INTO YOUR HANA CLOUD PLATFORM (HCP) AND LOAD YOUR DASHBOARD

URL : https://accounts.sap.com/saml2/idp/sso/accounts.sap.com

After logging in your will be presented with an overview of your HCP Dashboard

LOAD THE HCP MOBILE SERVICES ( HCPMS ) SERVICE

Please note that there is no service called HCPms, instead it is called Development and Operations under the Mobile Services header

ENABLE THE DEVELOPMENT AND OPERATIONS SERVICE AND LAUNCH THE SERVICE

Ensure that the Development and Operations service is enabled. You should only have to do this once.

After the service is enabled, click on the Go to Service

The structure of the URL is as follows: https://hcpmsadmin-<ACCOUNT ID>trial.dispatcher.hanatrial.ondemand.com

CREATE NEW MOBILE APPLICATION

After the Mobile Services dashboard loads, you will want to create a new MOBILE application. Please note that these applications are different thanthe JAVA or HTML applications created in HCP ( Yep, confusing I know )

Click on the Applications tile

CLICK ON THE CREATE APPLICATION ICON

 

CREATE NEW HCPMS APPLICATION

Use similar information when creating the HCPms application

EDIT APPLICATION BACKEND CONNECTION DETAILS

We want our example to provide an integration point to a backend system. We don’t want to go into the complexities of integrating into an ECC system, so we are just going to use a publicly available ODATA Service

Click on the ‘Configure’ icon to edit your application

EDIT APPLICATION BACKEND INFORMATION

Click on the Back End tab

You don’t need an SSO Mechanism just select No Authentication

Check out Part 2 and learn how to build an Apple SWIFT application to integrate with your new HCPms Mobile Application.
