This might be a basic question but I just cannot find an answer to this. I am new to SAP Web IDE and was trying out the official Hello World tutorial.

At step 4 of Create a Project, it says "4. In the Project Name field, leave the proposed name for your project, and choose Next.". There was no proposed name by the IDE and if I enter the same name as the application, there will be an error saying "A project with this name already exists in your workspace.".

Give a name that doesn't already exist in your workspace.

Can you please share the link to this tutorial?

I did that in the end but was just curious the screen does not follow the official tutorial.


Thanks, I will request this to be fixed.


Should be fixed next sprint.

Same issue. The tutorial still mentions that you should "leave" the project name as specified in SAP Cloud Cockpit. That is the problem, the name of the HTML5 application which was created in SCP doesn't come across to WEBIDE. Changing the project name is not the solution. It shoudl copy across and it doesnt due to whatever reason.

Hmm I asked them to fix it... Will try again using a different approach :)
