Increase timeout to avoid 504 error on deploy from WebIDE Full-Stack

If you get a 504 when deploying from Web IDE Full-Stack set the additional property HTML5.SocketReadTimeoutInSeconds to 300 on your SAP Cloud Platform destination (Cockpit>Connectivity>Destinations).

In my case I was deploying to a Netweaver Gateway system and it kept getting stuck on one file before throwing a 504 error.  Setting the property resolved the issue.  It is listed in the Web IDE documentation, but the path to the answer is rather convoluted, so I thought I would share it here.

Note that the property name won’t appear in the dropdown list, but that doesn’t matter.

      Nice, short and to the point!  I like it.  I'm trying to get access to WEBIDE to work with my company.  Since they don't want to connect to the cloud for that it is an uphill battle.  If I get to use it, this could become and invaluable reference.

      Thank you for taking the time to update us!

      Good luck with that discussion, Michelle.  Back in 2015 when I was using Eclipse for UI5 development I was a bit of a skeptic regarding Web IDE.  Since then it has improved a great deal, and there are so many different things you can do with the full-stack version.

      I'm sure you know that you need the Cloud Connector running on prem so that Cloud Platform (incl. Web IDE) can connect to your back-end systems.  Did you also know that you can actually install cloud connector on your own machine?  As long as your machine is running you could at least try out Web IDE and deploy apps to your back-end systems.  Then, once the 'battle' is won with management they can install cloud connector on a server for you.

      Nice!  Yes, I knew I needed the cloud connector.  That's what I needed them to install.  I did not know I could install it on my machine.   I'm excited now!

      I'm playing with build and it uploads into WEBIDE.   Very cool.
