Unsupported project in WebIDE, and project type settings

Sometimes when adding project into the Web IDE workspace, you may face a strange behavior in the project itself after its import. Basically, project settings might not be configured adequately turning project not legible for deploy.


Not able to deploy an UI5/Fiori application in the ABAP backend. A Unsupported project message is shown during deployment.

Reason and causes

Main causes are:

  • Missing properties in manifest.json
  • Wrong key/pair values in manifest.json
  • Project type is not yet set.


  • First approach: Access manifest.json file using Code Editor option.

    (right click on manifest.json, then Open Code Editor);Under tag, property type should appear with value "application"


  • Seconds approach: Edit your project settings, and select SAP Fiori type

    (right click on project, then Project > Project Settings);
    (check SAP Fiori on Project Types)
