SAP released a new version of SAP Web IDE: SAP Web IDE, multi-cloud version.

At this time, SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version is being offered in addition to the regularly released version of SAP Cloud Platform, Web IDE.

This version is based on a more capable and scalable open-source server-side foundation, and offers advanced features that are not available in the regular productive SAP Web IDE version, such as:

Support for SAP Leonardo

SAP Web IDE has incorporated an advanced IoT wizard for developing beautiful IoT applications in less than 5 minutes, without any coding. Unlike other Fiori wizards, it supports a divided page layout, with arbitrary horizontal and vertical sections.

Combined with the enhanced layout editor, you can drag and drop smart controls, specially designed for IoT use cases, into any of the sections and easily bind each of these controls to an SAP Leonardo IoT service point. Define interactions and event actions via a dialog, test with live data, and of course deploy the application to Fiori Launchpad on SAP Cloud Platform

Multi-cloud support

We have enhanced SAP Web IDE to support the development not only the UI part of cloud applications, but also the service part of an application. We call this new capability full-stack application development, and we are proud to introduce SAP HANA based full-stack application development for SAP Cloud Platform (Cloud Foundry environments), reaching out to whole new developer communities.

A full-stack application project, also referred to as a multitarget application, may consist of several modules, such as a data model, business logic, written in Java or Node.js, and of course a UI. Create these modules using wizards, define interdependencies and dependencies to existing cloud services, use graphical modelers and context-aware tools to build, debug, and test your code, and finally deploy the entire application project as a single package to SAP Cloud platform.

Full-stack development for SAP Cloud Platform capability is currently delivered in the SAP HANA version of SAP Web IDE (such as SAP HANA Express Edition); it will become available in the on-cloud version of SAP Web IDE in the short-term.

Seamless Integration with SAP API Business Hub

You have probably heard of our recently introduced SAP API business hub, a central catalog that brings together APIs from SAP Cloud Platform (e.g. SAP Cloud Platform business rules), S/4 HANA, SAP SuccessFactors and other SAP cloud products. We have now integrated SAP Web IDE with this catalog, to make the process of finding, exploring, testing and consuming SAP data services directly from SAP Web IDE even simpler. Browse and explore APIs, test an API in its sandbox with mock data, and finally, import a selected API to be used in your application. All of this without leaving SAP Web IDE.

Note: SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version is offered as a new tile in SAP Cloud Platform cockpit. you should enable the new service to be able to use this version.

 

Frequently Asked Questions:

Should I move my development to the new SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version?

You should move to SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version if you have an interest in the new capabilities that are offered in this version.

Follow these steps if you want to move an existing project to SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version.

Do I have to purchase anything to be able to use SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version?

No, you don’t have to purchase a new license. you can use this version under the terms of your existing license.

Will the new capabilities be offered in the existing SAP Web IDE version?

No, we will continue to maintain the current SAP Web IDE version, but new features will be introduced in SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version.

I am working on the project together with other developers from my team and we share project via git. Can we use different SAP Web IDE versions?

We recommend using the same SAP Web IDE version for the same project.

If you choose different cloud versions or use the personal edition together with the multi-cloud version,

all changes to the project settings made in one version must be copied manually in another.

Can I work with the same project in  SAP Web IDE, multi-cloud version and SAP Web IDE personal edition?

Yes, you can migrate your projects between the two versions as described here.

However, some functionality is not is not available yet in the personal edition. You can find more details here.

Also please note that all changes that you make in the project settings must be copied manually.

    Hello Elizabeth

    This sounds  interesting ! Developing IoT apps with the IDE.

    Does this version provide a template? I could not see any wizards or anything in this IDE.

    Does SAP have plans to release starter guides/help documents to get started with this feature of Web IDE.

    Kind Regards

    Sandip

      Hi Sandip,

      In order to create an IoT application in SAP Web IDE you need to enable the IoT feature in SAP Web IDE multi-cloud version.

      After the feature is enables you will have the relevant IoT templates and controls for IoT application development.

      These are the relevant documentation links:

      https://help.sap.com/viewer/825270ffffe74d9f988a0f0066ad59f0/CF/en-US/90999000744441c6b1fe486d43428b4b.html

    Hi Elizabeth,

    I’m currently evaluating SAP Hana using Sap Cloud Platform with a trial account. Sap Web Ide Multi Cloud looks promising, but from official documentation  (https://help.sap.com/viewer/825270ffffe74d9f988a0f0066ad59f0/CF/en-US/a71bf8281254489ea8be6e323199b304.html) I read that “In the current version, only HTML5 modules are supported”.

    Is there any scheduled date when a fully functional version (with both HDB, Node, Java modules) will be made available even on SAP CP ?

        By the way, is it also planned to introduce a full support at code editing even for java / spring boot modules by the  end of Q3 ? At the moment – I’ve tried it on Hana 2.0 SPS 01 trial  when it has been made available for download – code completion / check  isn’t still supported for java, while works very well for javascript / node.js modules. Actually working  with java is quite tricky (for example one needs to use git to sync code written outside WebIde, or copy and paste source code from an external IDE like Eclipse).

        Hi Claudio,

        We are searching for early adopter customers to experiment in full stack development before it becomes generally available.

        Let me know if you are interested.

        Best regards,

        Lisi

      Hi Suzy.

      The Web IDE multi-cloud version is available to the trial accounts, just as the previous version. You should be able to see it from your services catalog and enable it from there.

       

      Kind regards,

      Simen

      Hi Chris,

      Do you refer to the optional features?

      If so then some of them already exist (e.g. HAT, Build, Cloud Portal and more), and some will be

      available in time.

      Regards,

      Michal.

      Hi,

      Is the “regular” Web IDE working for you?

      Did you change something in your Trust configuration? If so try reset it back to default or undo your last change.

      Or it might be an issue with SAP Cloud Platform.

      Regards,
      Michal.

        Hi Michal,

        Yes, regular WebIDE works fine.

        In my Trust config:

        under LSP: Config Type->Default, Principal Propogation->Enabled & Force Authentication->Default

        App Identity provider->default-accounts.sap.com
        Is it correct one?

        Regards,

        Jitendra

    Hi,

    I’m using the regular Web IDE everyday but for some reason I can’t use the Multi-Cloud version on my productive accounts. The service is enabled but when I try to access it, it gets stuck on the loading page. I can see some authorization related issues in the console.

    I believe this might have something to do with principal propagation configuration but unfortunately I can’t access the documentation on help.sap.com, I get a 403 you don’t have the rights to view this page error. Really SAP, I can’t even view the documentation for SAP Web IDE Multi-Cloud?

    I’ll open a ticket but someone should really fix this, it’s such a terrible user experience.

    Cheers,

    Pierre

    We tried to migrate sources from webide to webide multi-cloud version. the links about “to migrate source” to help.sap.com dont work.

    when we import sources, the structure of the folders is differnt (e.g. folder test gets deleted , where e.g. files like index.htm are in there in the old webide etc.) – when synchronising with git it gets a complete disaster. e.g. a new structure (webapp) is in the folder-structure with all files inside.

    will be there smooth migration to this version any time? it is a lot of work to import manually, ok at the moment we cannot use it .

    regards oliver

      Hi Oliver,

      I hope you got answers to your questions about the migration in the meeting yesterday.

      We fixed the documentation issue. you should be able to access it now.

    I’ve been notified via Sap Web Ide newsletter that Sap Web Ide Multi-Cloud now supports HANA DB and Java Modules. I tried to have a look using my trial account, but I have no options like “Add module -> Java module”.Is this feature enabled only for accounts with a full subscription ?

    1. Michal Keidar

      Hi,

      Currently in hanatrial only the DB module is added. The Java module exists in the non-trial landscape. It will exist in the trial landscape as well, but I cannot say exactly when.

      Regards,
      Michal.

    Hi Elizabeth Gutt,

    Nice blog !!!.

    I need a information, We are running a SAP UI5 custom apps which is running in the Web IDE. While tested in IE, Chrome its working fine.

    We tried the same in iOS its not working as needed. We are using Custom tiles.

    My question is

    Do we need to use SAP Web IDE- multi cloud and deploy the same application in it? or any changes that i have customise so that it run flawlessly in iOS.

    Let me know your comments as well.
