Use own namespace in HCP Mobile Services

Dear community,

I recently activated HCP Mobile Services (trial) for my S-user, to try to deploy an hybrid application to HANA Cloud Platform.

Unfortunately, it seems like there is no possibility to use our own namespace. I have Gateway service registered in corresponding namespace in our on-premise SAP system. In SMP on-premise I had to create a security profile named like the namespace to get it work in a pure on-premise environment.

But where can I create my own Security Profile in HCP Mobile Services?

Moreover, we were used to utilize the HTTP Basic Authentication to authenticate with SAP user against an own BSP page running on SAP on-premise. This was done by providing the BSP URL in the target URL of the corresponding security profile. But now I don't see any possibility to change the Basic Authentication URL? Maybe that comes along with creating an own Security Configuration somehow?

We don't have SSO / SAML 2.0 in our development on-premise landscape and want to keep on using the HTTP Basic Authentication concept...

Looking forward to any idea to solve those two problems.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Tomas,

    HCPms security works a bit different to what SMP provides. HCP mobile services relies on the security mechanisms that are provided by HANA Cloud Platform.

    Once a client request hits the HCPms URL, HCP is authenticating the request even before it is redirected to HCPms. So in order to allow HTTPbasic auth you have to configure this in HCP not HCPms (the same is true for SAML auth).

    Since HCP is now responsible for security, there is no concept of "Security Configurations" anymore in HCP mobile services.

    So those two items are closely related.

    Find information about how to enable HTTP Basic Auth for here:

    I don't know if this is possible with the free developer account (trial).

    Kind Regards,

      No, in the current scenario we have following infrastructure:

      SAP ERP / Gateway (on premise) <---> HANA Cloud Connector (on premise) <----> HCPms <---> Client

      Is there the problem?

      Best regards,
