Web IDE Build / Space Enablement Tool does not work

Hi all,

I have just installed a SAP HANA 2.0 Platform Edition with XS Advance (XSA) for evaluation purposes in terms of IoT scenarios. Components have been patched to the latest available patch level.

While the whole platforms works fine in general, there is a really strange issue with building applications in the (on premise) Web IDE:

In IE11 browser, I got an error message " Object doesn't support property or method 'assign' " when starting build, so no build possible.

When using Chrome browser, there is an error with the builder: "Build of test02 failed. The builder is either unavailable or outdated. To solve this, try again in a few minutes, and if the problem persists, contact your administrator to deploy or update the builder using the Space Enablement tool".

So I tried to call the Space Enablement tool in order to redeploy the Build Service, but the only thing I get is an empty page with title "Space Enablement". In short words: The Space Enablement tool does not work for any reason, and I have tried several browsers.

Unfortunately, I didn't find a solution for this issue when searching for similar problems in blogs etc.

Is there a workaround for this issue? Can I redeploy certain components (by using "xs install" for example) in order to get this solved? Or are there special requirements on front end side for the (quite new) Web IDE patch, for example certain browser or java versions?

Any kind of help is appriciated...

Thanks and kind regards

    I have the same issue.

  • I have the same issue. When i try to enable the space with the space enablement tool I get:

    Deploy Service is not available in space <XXX> for user <XXX>.

    org HANAExpress not found Could not deploy the builder. Cause: Could not deploy the builder MTA.. Could not deploy the builder MTA. The builder deployment has finished with status: FAILED in space dev.

    What is strange to me is that it cannot find HanaExpress org. my dev space is part of other org than HANAExpress.

    I am having the same issue (blank page after logging in to Space Enablement tool) with Hana Express edition. Did anyone ever find a solution to this?

    can you navigate to the XSA cockpit ... to make sure you have a SPACE create... if you are using the XSA HXE you should have 2 default SPACES created, development and SAP...

    I have seen the blank SPACE drop down when my web ide timed out... refresh your web ide to see if that is refreshed.
