S4 System in CAL and WebIDE config

Hi

We have a S4 system in CAL.,have created a Trial account in HCP, installed Cloud connector in laptop. But I am not able to start using WebIDE, I keep getting the message - Catalog service is unavailable while trying to access the Service Catalog in Data Connection in WebIDE.

Can someone please share the Destination config settings in HCP Cockpit? what should be the URL - the IP of my S4 system - do we need to specify ports?Proxy Type: Internet?

Also, what settings we need to use in Cloud Connector? Anything in Configuration? Cloud to On-Premise config?

Thanks,

Bidwan

    Hi Bidwan

    The Cloud Connector installation needs to be able to access both HCP and your S/4 system. A Cloud Connector running on your laptop will only be able to access HCP, not the S/4 system in the cloud. Where is the S/4 system actually running? Amazon? Azure? If you install Cloud Connector on the same virtual machine as S/4, you will be able to connect.

    Remember to create your HCP Destinations as type OnPremise, rather than Internet. This signals to HCP that the connection has to go through the Cloud Connector's tunnel.

    Regards,

    Morten

    My S4 system is on Azure. Just trying to understand, why will a cloud connector running in my laptop wont be able to access the S4? I access the S4 system via my laptop using the sapgui ports and https connections.

    Thanks,

    • Hi Bidwan

      Well, if you can access the S/4 service, you want to call from Web IDE, from your laptop over the internet, you don't really need the Cloud Connector at all; in that case you can just create a Destination pointing to it in HCP. Usually, though, it requires configuration of the cloud VM to be able to access its ports from the internet.

    Thanks a lot Morten! Awesome!

    For the benefit of others. Here is the destination details in HCP.

    Name:<SID of S4 CAL>

    Type:HTTP

    Description:S4

    URL:http://<IP of S4 CAL>:50000 (Port is opened in CAL by editing an creating a custom entry)

    Proxy Type:Internet

    Authentication:BasicAuthentication

    User:BPINST

    Password:<password>

    Additional Properties

    New Property

    WebIDEEnabled = true WebIDEUsage=odata_abap,dev_abap,ui5_execute_abap

    Check Connection=SUCCESS!

    FYI - If I change Proxy Type to On Premise,

    Check Connection=Failure reason: "Backend status could not be determined"

    If you get something like 'Peer not authenticated' - it may mean your port is wrong or something is wrong with the URL.
