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.

    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

      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:

      Best Regards,

    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  ( 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 ?

      1. Claudio Mauri

        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,

    Is the Web IDE MultiCloud version available to those who currently use trial SAP Web IDE account or are they required to purchase a license?


    1. Simen Huuse

      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,
