I need to add push notification to the Fiori PO Approval App

To add push notifications, I need to use HAT to package it as a Hybrid app.

Unfortunately this app was built on an sapui5 version prior to 1.30 and it doesn't have a manifest.json file, so when I try to build a packaged app with Fiori Mobile I get the error message "This project uses an incompatible template that is not supported by Fiori Mobile build".

Has anyone got any ideas about how to build this app as a Hybrid app, then enabling the use of Native features such as push notifications?

Just getting back with the solution if anyone is trying to do the same.

The main hurdle was that the App was built with SAPUI5 version 1.28 and it didn't have a descriptor (manifest.json) file in my extension project in WebIDE. I was able to manually build the descriptor with advice from this document:

Once the manifest file existed I was then able to proceed with building the App with Hat and now the App is deployed on an Android phone with the push notifications working nicely.
