    hi! i had the same problem now, and could resolve it.

    -In SICF all the related services have to be activated (catalogservice , odata services)

    -i have set the resource to "/" and have set access to path and subpath in cloud connector for my on-premise destination

    -also added the following properties to the destination: (WebIDEUsage: odata_gen,odata_abap,bsp_execute_abap,ui5_execute_abap,dev_abap,odata_gen,bsp_execute_abap, WEBIDESYSTEM: SID of my onpremise system, sap_client: our client number, WebIDEEnabled: True)

    - my error was:

    on Cloud connector i had two connections to the same on-premise system, one with right virtual name and one with IP address instead of right virtual name.

    on hanatrial i used the virtual name in the destination, but In cloudConnector the one with IP address was active, and first i assigned resource to only that. the connection was ok, it was green and worked fine, except that i had that Forbidden403 error.

    Resolution: as on hanatrial i had connection to the one with right virtual name i had to remove the another connection from cloud connector (the one with IP address) and have set the one with right virtual name to be active. (i hope i could write it down clearly ;)

    i hope it can help with your problem

    bye Imola

    Can you access and run the service directly on Gateway? Also check your cloud connector configuration, maybe the resource path is not allowed.

    do you use CloudConnector? Is your setup "INTERNET" or "onPremise"?

    If you use Cloud Connector, the connection type should be OnPremise, not Internet. With Internet connection type the test is fine in Connection screen, but you will not be able to use the service while in WebIDE. If you face issues with type onPremise, check for correct value in field LocationID- it has to be the value defined in Cloud connector.Check note 2447136 for more details.
