HANA Express 2.0 SPS2 - Web IDE Che Gateway Time out

Hi folks,

I am running HANA Express 2.0 on VMware with 24 GB ram ...

I regularly get the following error when trying to run scripts from within the webide:

"Application is starting ..."

"Request failed: Gateway Timeout URI: /che/runner/workspacezmn3yjpzoy7ad3yc/status/1"

Sometimes when I start web ide I get similar che popup errors and eventually have empty projects ...

Apparently there is somewhere a time out occurring ...

Any pointers on where I could configure these ?

I should also note that - although I have a very powerfull laptop - it sometimes takes up to 45 minutes before all XS apps are started ...

    Hi Steven,

    this problem, among others, is fixed with the latest Web IDE release. Unfortunately, it is not yet contained in the latest HANA Express version. However, you can download the latest Web IDE release from the SMP and update it manually. To do so

    1. Go to the SMP (

    2. Go to Support Packages and Patches -> H -> SAP Hana Platform Edition -> SAP Hana Platform Edition 2.0

    3. Download the latest release of SAP HANA RUNTIME TOOLS 2.0 and SAP WEB IDE 2

    4. Go to the Web IDE release note ( and download the file sap-xsac-devx.mtaext

    5. Install HRTT with "xs install XSACHRTT04_43-70002322.ZIP"

    6. Install Web IDE with "xs install XSACSAPWEBIDE02_7-80002257.ZIP -e sap-xsac-devx.mtaext"

    Unfortunately, after the update, you have to "re-enable" your development space. For that,

    1. Start the "space-enablement-ui"

    2. Login with the XSA_ADMIN user

    3. Update your development space.

    In time the latest Web IDE release will also be included in HANA Express, but up to now it is not clear when the next HANA Express version will be released.

    As to your startup performance: The time to get the system up mostly depends on your disk performance. Do you use an SSD or HDD?

    Best regards,

    • Got everything back working and patched the webide using Lucia's blog ...

      Also moved the VM to the SSD - which seems to give a huge difference in performance ..

      Thanks again ... learned a lot of new stuff going through this painful excercise .. ... :-)
