Backend destination (ES5) not showing up in web ide service catalog sap trial cloud platform

I have a destination configured in my sap cloud platform and i have access to the back end. I am using the same password and user id in the destination and when I log into the back end. When I create a new project from a template and select the master-details template. When I get the connection area and select the service catalog area. I do not see my ES5 destination. Where is it looking for this drop down.

    Hi Dominic,
    I usually forget to add the required Properties for the destination. WebIDE picks only those destinations which are meant to be read by the Catalog browser in WebIDE. The catalog will use the destination to go to the backend and invoke the "CatalogService" which provides a list of all OData services in that back-end.
    As such, you have to add the properties defined by WebIDE to the destination configuration
    WebIDEEnabled with value true
    WebIDEUsage with value odata_abap
    this property in fact leads WebIDE to the assumption that there's a CATALOG_SRV available on that system
    WebIDESystem with a value of your choice, this is a name that appears in the drop down. But it is optional, otherwise default will be used
    sap-client with value of the tenant, e.g. 002, only required if your tenant is not the default

    Cheers and good luck,

    Have you followed the steps described in Create a Neo Destination for the SAP Gateway Demo System?
