Error: "Make sure /sap/bc/adt/discovery is reachable and returns a valid XML

Hi,

We are trying to deploy our gateway system into WEB IDE Personal Edition(Not Cloud),

We have created the required file with system details under Destinations folder in installed SAPWebIDE.

While trying to connect to the back-end system we get the following error,

  • Error: "Make sure /sap/bc/adt/discovery is reachable and returns a valid XML. If a login page is presented, change the configuration of your system to Basic Authentication as Form Authentication is not supported

I checked the services in the system and activated ADT, But I am not able to find the service /sap/bc/adt/discovery

I have found a OSS note 2494880 on the error, it says,

  1. Make sure the service /sap/bc/adt/discovery is enabled in your backend system, via transaction SICF. If it shows a yellow status, reactivate it

But I am not able to find the services itself, I need to know how to add the service in SICF, also let me know if I miss any steps.

Thank you,

Arun

    Hi Arun,

    I think your chosen tags for this question are not the right ones.. You should ask the relevant backend experts. In the relevant backend forum/tag.

    SAP Web IDE is the client side and your question is related to the server side. I can try and google your question but if you want to ask the experts, please use the relevant tag.

    Regards,
    Michal.

    Hi Keidar,

    Thank you for the reply, I have tagged the question to related teams,

    I gone through one of the older form you have replied as below,

    Are you able to download the discovery xml when approaching it directly in the browser without Web IDE? Just try to access <host>:<port>/sap/bc/adt/discovery

    We are able to download the XML by approaching directly in the browser, but not able to find the service in SICF.

    But we get the error message Error: "Make sure /sap/bc/adt/discovery is reachable and returns a valid XML

    when we connect through WEB IDE(Personal Edition), can you help us with your ideas. Can I configure the downloaded Discovery XML ?

    Regards,

    Arun.

    You would find /sap/bc/adt. Activate the service. Then have authorization Object S_ADT_RES for /sap/bc/adt/discovery assigned by Security team to developer role,

    Hello,

    We had the same problem, after deactivating SAML SSO we were able to deploy the apps to the backend.

    Thanks,
