500 Internal Server Error


I am debugging in the B1 HANA Web IDE. When I run a test on javascript code and there is any kind of error I get just a generic error back from the server with little information.


500 - Internal Server Error


Please contact your system administrator

What do I need to change so that the server will display the internal error itself rather than a generic message? I have noticed that in the eLearning videos a more descriptive message is returned.

Thanks for any help.

    Hi Mel,

    Have you activated the developer_mode in XS Engine on your HANA system?
