  • You’ve created an account in SAP BTP and have subscribed to and configured the SAP Launchpad service.
  • Step 1
    1. Log on to SAP BTP.

    2. Select your subaccount.

      Select subaccount

    If you’re using an SAP BTP Trial account, after you log in to SAP BTP, you would first need to click Go To Your Trial Account.

    Enter trial account

  • Step 2

    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 In workshops, use: <your unique identifer>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’re 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?
