HR Renewal UI5 - Gateway Hub, WebDispatcher forwarding?


Hi Gurus!
I have been searching for this issue some time, but cant seem to find the correct answer anywhere.

we have a central gateway(hub installation) , and we have a backend system (HCM system).

HR Renewal is installed on the HCM system.
and the Odata services are registered on the gateway server.

But - none of the HR (ESS and MSS) applications are installed on the gateway server - they are only installed on the backend server (HCM system).

How do we "connect" theese?

do we "forward" all requests made to: sap/bc/ui5_ui5/sap/* on the gateway - to the backend (hcm) system?

OR - do we forward all requests made to the /sap/opu/odata/sap/ on the HCM to the Gateway?

in another word:

what is the best way to serve the users?

should they logon to the HCM systems webdispatcher: http://hcmsystem:port/sap.....

or the gateway : http://hcmsystem:port/sap...

I cant seem to find any advice.

Fiori is different - because here you have an UI part - which you install on the gateway - but this does not seem to be the case with the new HR Renewal UI5 applications - they only seem to be delivered with the HR Renewal packages.

I found thisthreads:

Which mentions the forwarding - so that is why i am looking in this direction - but is this the "right" way?

Best regards
