    Hi Arjun,

    By default UI5 is a web application which runs in a browser, and browser does not have the capabilities to achieve the mobile device specific functionality like address book, contacts, Media....

    And IMEI / UUID is one of the device specific functionality which cannot be achieved directly from the browser. A cross platform framework like phone gap / Cordova solves this problem to access the device specific functionality from the web apps like UI5. This blog helps to understand what about Cordova and its working.

    Cordova has a plugin as mentioned here to access the UUID. Also have a look at this discussion to access IMEI / UUID via Cordova.

    You might need to package the web app via Cordova and add the necessary plugins to access the native device features .
