    Hi Shreedhar,

    When you try creating a new Fiori Starter Project, after you enter the name, you will land on the "3. Data Connection" wizard step. If you select "service catalog", do you see any systems in the drop down list? If so, when you select one of the systems, does any error appear? For example:

    In any case, the prerequisites for using a back-end system as data provider are (for the cloud WebIDE):

    • to connect the system using the Hana Cloud Connector (I guess that you have done this step). You must be sure to allow access to the /sap/opu/odata or /sap/hba (for HANA XS OData) paths (including subpaths)
    • create a destination for your system, here you must assure that you have the additional parameter WebIDEUsage, with the following values: odata_abap,odata_gen, odata_xs (the last one is only if you have a back-end HANA XS engine).

    Also, if nothing else works, you can try and register your service in the HCI oData Provisioning service of the cloud account (cockpit -> services -> HCI OData Provisioning). If it works, then the problem is with the WebIDE parameters.

    • Hi Shreedhar,

      Can you open Chrome's developer tools (left click on something -> Inspect element) and see if there are an errors? If not go to the "Network" tab in the developer tools and refresh the page, then open the "Change Customer" popup. After doing this you will see all requests done by the page. One (or more) of these requests should be to the odata service. If you double click an entry in this list, you can see the response of the request (i.e. the oData service response).

      To find our exactly which odata service your app is using, go to Component.js and look into the metadata definition for the serviceConfig object (check the screenshot below).

      This URL is actually a virtual one, and is mapped to a destination according to a route-mapping defined in the neo-app.json (the virtual path is the path attribute and the real one is the entryPath). You can navigate through the oData model directly using a browser if you determine the real URL (just add the ECC's host:port in front of the /sap/opu/... URL).

      You can also try out the HCI oData Provisioning service to navigate through the data (you would have to add the destination in the HCI and add the oData service).
