OData don't connect, Data Set not defined

I used automatical OData connection with SAP Web IDE. Unfortunately, data don't connect and Layout Editor says that Data Set "not defined". I have tried to connect by coding, for example<Table items={/Stats}>, but it doesn't work either. When I use project template (Master-Detail or Worklist), there are no problems with connection and Data is automatically connecting, but when I want to make my project and make a connection, there are always some problems.

I don't really understand the difference between template OData connection and my connection. I cannot find this very important difference in a code.

It's picture how connect data with template. I have local installation of SAP Web IDE and I would like to connect SAP Backend.

There are some code samples of automatical connection to my project. I hope that you can help me understand what should I add that my project could connect to database.

  • Hi,

    I think you should re-tag your question and put it under SAPUI5 as it is not really related to the SAP Business Client. You have more chance of getting an answer in the SAPUI5 area.

    You do not have a default model defined in your manifest.json. Under sap.ui5.models, below the i18n entry try adding

    "": {
        "dataSource": "UI5STAT1_SRV",
    	"settings": {
