SAP UI5 app development using SAP Business Application Studio

Hello All

These days i am working on new learning’s. This blog explains a basic workaround on custom controls development and I have used SAP Business Application Studio as my IDE tool.

Lets begin the development. Make sure to have an active subscription to SAP Business Application Studio from Cloud Foundry environment.

Click on Create Dev Space

Name the Dev Space like zdemo, choose SAP Fiori and then Create.

Check for Running state and press zdemo

From below landing page, go with New project from template

Follow the below steps to create the project.

Name your project

From the workspace, create folder control and file CustomControl.js


I used sap.m.ComboBox for demo purpose. This can be replaced by our own custom design.

sap.ui.define(["sap/ui/core/Control", "sap/m/ComboBox", "sap/ui/core/Item"],
	function (Control, ComboBox, Item) {
		"use strict";
		return Control.extend("ns.HTML5Module.control.CustomControl", {
			metadata: {

				aggregations: {
					_combobox: {
						type: "sap.ui.core.Control",
						multiple: false,
						visibility: "hidden"
			init: function () {

				this.setAggregation("_combobox", new ComboBox("idComboBox", {
					items: [
						new Item({
							key: "1",
							text: "Supriya"
						new Item({
							key: "2",
							text: "Sainath"
						new Item({
							key: "3",
							text: "Bhuvana"
			renderer: function (oRm, oControl) {
				oRm.openStart("div", oControl);


Mention the created control in view.xml

Now it’s time to run our application. Click Run from Left Pane.

Choose + sign

Proceed with below steps.

Finally the output can be seen in New Tab once we press on Expose and Open.

Comments are accepted 🙂

Thank you!!

      SAP WebIDE is far better than BAS, i was under impression that WebIDE will be central tool for all SAP related development which SAP declared earlier, and all of sudden BAS, its very confusing for developers.

      Did someone already understood how to import an ABAP Repository Fiori App into SAP Business Application Studio ?

      It was quite simple to import ABAP repository App into WEB IDE, change the App and Deploy Fiori again to ABAP repository. Even if I use /UI5/UI5_REPOSITORY_LOAD to download the ABAP Repository App, I did not understood how to upload it on Business Studio.


      Any idea how to solve this gap ?

      How to connect to ABAP repository on-premise???

      The only difference I see is development tool is migrated from SAP cloud to AWS cloud which might be more expensive for customer.
