When I was running SAP Web IDE with trial of SAP Cloud Platform, I got an error like below attachment file.

"Undefined or null reference property can not be retrieved"

I was able to process it without problem on last Friday.
Have there been any problems with SAP Web IDE since then?
Please confirm it.

Best regards,

This could be an issue with the UI5 Innovation version (1.50). Can you please try with a lower version?

Hi, Michal

Thank you for your prompt answer.
I chose "SAPUI 5 1.44" when making from Template.
As a result, errors were avoided and applications could be created without problems.

However, until now, it was made with SAP Innovation (1.50).
Do you know what is the cause?

Thank you and Best Regards.



This is a bug in the innovation version of UI5 and a fix is on the way.

As a workaround please use version 1.44.

Hello Atsushi,

unfortunately, we have a technical issue in the 1.50 version of the templates at the moment. We created a correction which will become available very soon on the public Web IDE instances. It will resolve the issue so that the templates can be created as expected again.

As a workaround please select the version "SAPUI5 1.44" and create a template from this version - this should work fine for the moment.

Another alternative until the fix is available is to download the corresponding demo apps from the Demo Kit which contain similar coding. Click on “Download” in the header, choose the corresponding app (FLP or non-FLP) and import the resulting zip file into SAP Web IDE to have a template project in your workspace:

Kind Regards,
