SAP WebIDE: Timeout errors if you deploy to ABAP repository?


I want to share two issues I had deploying a SAPUI5 application to a ABAP repository with SAP WebIDE.

1. Deploy images timeout error.

If you have something similar to the following screenshot and it appeas while you deploy an image, the problem could be that the ABAP repository doesn’t have enouth resources to create the mime object on 30 seconds ( default timeout ).

So the solution for that from SAP was to create an index in the table SMIMCONT1 for the fields PHIO_ID + SRTF2.

So just go to transaction SE11 for the table and create the index like that:

So with that index the mime object creation process will be much faster as it takes most of the time looking on that table.

2. Deploy any file timeout error ( big js file for example )

If you have problem similar to the previous one but when you deploy a big javascript file, then a solution could be that you increase the cloud conector timeout as SAP suggested. So what you need to do is to specify the timeout on the destinations adding a parameter HTML5.SocketReadTimeoutInSeconds to indicate the timeout.

Here the documentation for that parameter:

So you will have something like this:

When you deploy a big js file for example the ABAP server takes some time to upload it from the cloud, adding this parameter will allow the abap server to work during 300 seconds for every javascript file.

I hope this helps someone as it took me some time until I got the solution

Thanks for reading
