  • You’ve created an account on the Gateway Demo System: Create an Account on the Gateway Demo System. Note that when you create your account, make a note of the user name and password that you entered – you’ll be needing it in this tutorial.

Step 1: Open your subaccount
  1. Log on to SAP BTP and click Enter Your Trial Account.

    Log on to SAP Cloud Platform
  2. Click on the trial tile to navigate to your trial subaccount in the SAP BTP cockpit. If you’re using your own subaccount, you can select it instead.

Step 2: Create destination to SAP Gateway Demo System

In this step, you’ll create connectivity between SAP BTP and the SAP Gateway Demo system account.

  1. In the left navigation panel, click Destinations under Connectivity.

    Open destinations
  2. Click New Destination.

    New destination
  3. Add the following destination properties:

    Important: If you haven’t already created a user in ES5 as explained in the prerequisites above, please do so now and follow the steps in this topic: Create an Account on the Gateway Demo System.

    Field Value
    Name ES5
    Type HTTP
    Description SAP Gateway ES5
    Proxy Type Internet
    Authentication BasicAuthentication
    User Name Your ES5 Gateway user
    Password Your ES5 Gateway password
  4. Make sure that the Use default JDK truststore checkbox is checked.

  5. Enter the following Additional Properties depending on your scenario. Click the New Property button each time to add a new property.

    If you are not sure which ones to enter, enter all of them.

    Field Value
    WebIDEEnabled true
    WebIDESystem Gateway
    WebIDEUsage odata_abap,dev_abap
    sap-platform ABAP (enter this property manually as it is not available in the dropdown list)
    sap-client 002
    HTML5.DynamicDestination true

    Note that SAP Business Application Studio reuses SAP Web IDE properties. In this way, the destination configuration as well as the migration from SAP Web IDE to SAP Business Application Studio, is much simpler.

    For more information about these properties, see Connecting to External Systems and Configure (HTML5) Destinations.

    Your screen will look like this:

    Destination Properties
  6. Click Save.

  7. Click Check Connection to make sure that everything is working.

    Check connection

    You’ll get confirmation that the connection is established.

    Connection established

    This is not an error. The check connection operation tries to open the ES5 URL and gets redirected to the login page.

Why do you need to create this destination?
