Hi Guys and Girls,

I have created a extension project of my timesheet application (HCM_TSH_MAN) in my workplace. Once this has been done I wanted to create a new extension. So I tried to right click on my extension project name, I click on new and no option appears (even the arrow is grey).

Then I thought I could use the general menu bar but there as week I'm not able to get any option. I click and nothing appears.

This is not a local installation of the WEB Ide.

What could be the problem here?

Thanks in advance for your help!

I would suggest trying to clear you browser cache and appending settings=ignore to the url as shown at

Thanks for your answer. By the way it is not working,

The only way is to use right click on a file instead of using it on a folder.

If ever I use it on a folder, then the right click and the menu bar are bot usable anymore without a proper refresh.

Hello Thomas,

I am having the same problem. We cant deploy single files, we have to select the folder. Were you able to resolve the problem?




What is the URL of your Web IDE?
What kind of app do you have?
Do you have any enabled features?
Is there any error or warning in the browser console?



Thank you for asking.

I read somewhere to check syntax errors in manifest.json file. There were some errors, (I made no changes to it, so I have no idea why they existed), and I managed to fix them using JSONLint. Problem was resolved then.

Maybe this could help someone.

Thanks anyways.
