Enhance existing UI5 (BSP-Application) in SE80

Hello,

I have a short question: I should enhance an existing UI5 application by adding additional navigation to new UI5 pages. Now I wanted to add some new folders (for structuring reasons) into the existing BSP structure in SE80 but it's only possible to add new files (right-mouse click) on webapp[] level.

What is the reason for this and what would be an alternativ?

Kind regards,

Thomas

The answer is simple: SE80 is just an old and ugly transaction.

Basically you have to add the folder using the MIME repository button, described below.

Also, consider using SAP Web IDE to develop UI5 application. In the worst case, use Eclipse with the proper plugin installed but never SE80. Life is too short for that.

Hi Fabio,

hi Jun

thanks for the link but it doesn't help. With the navigation via the MIME repository I don't reach the folder structure of the webapplication. That's the point. I want to add a new folder to new views and components.

When I'd use the web ide is there anything to consider, which settings need to be done to reach the customer system? Is there something to consider when deploying changes back to the SAP system? Is there a risk to destroy the existing app?

Kind regards,

Thomas

Hi Thomas.

To connect to the customer system you could use Cloud Connector (free) and then configure the relevant destinations in SAP Cloud. It will be a little effort but is so worth getting behind you.

When in SAP Web Ide you should check source into GIT and that way all changes are tracked. I think you are forced to created a copy of the app you pull through - and you would also want to deploy by referencing a request.

I know that's a very brief synopsis of quite a lot of work but, again, worth doing. Shout if you need more help (Monday) ;) - got to take a break!

Hi Thomas. Fabio, Bernard and Jun are right: if you want to change your SAPUI5 app (adding a folder is a change), you should use Web IDE and not SE80.

Hope this helps

Now I installed the SAP Cloud Connector and linked it successfully to my SAP Cloud Platform. I connected an external customer system with the Cloud Connector (status: reachable), added the different paths I want to use like dev_abap, odata_gen, ui5_execute_abap, etc.

In the SAP Cloud Platform Cockpit the connection to the customer system is also okay.

How do I get the existing UI5 application from the customer system uploaded into SAP Web IDE? So far I tried the following:

a) Right-Click on 'Workspace' -> Import -> Application from SAPUI5 Repository

Result: Error: The system you selected requires additional configurations....

However up to this point I haven't selected any system/destination. What is the problem and how can I solve it?

b) Right-Click on 'Workspace' -> New -> Project from template: SAP UI5 Application

This doesn't help either because there is no way to select a destination

Any hint would be appreciated. Thanks.
