    Hi all,

    You can import the Fiori standard applications from your system into SAP Web IDE, for reference, however it's not recommended to treat them as a starting point for your development.

    Let me explain:
    The Fiori standard apps were built before deployed to the system. This has several impacts, one of them is that they're "flat", meaning all their resources rely directly under the root folder.

    When developing applications in SAP Web IDE, the best-practice is to have the "webapp" folder and all the development resources under it.

    Web IDE expects this structure and may behave unexpectedly if this is different.

    It is against best-practices to import a built artifact and continue developing it.

    You should either create a new app from a template and use the imported standard app as a reference, or create an extension project to the standard app.

    When developing in a team and collaborating, it is recommended to use Git as your source control management (and not deploy to your ABAP system in order for your colleague to have the updated version).

    Here's an example of what can occur when developing a built artifact:
    https://blogs.sap.com/2016/12/26/cant-see-your-sap-web-ide-deployed-changes-at-runtime-maybe-you-are-doing-it-wrong./

    So to summarize, you can import apps from your system (when you click OK in the dialog message, the app is imported into your workspace), however it's against best-practices to keep developing this imported app. Other errors and unexpected behavior may occur further down the line.

    Regards,
    Michal.

    Hi Bahram,

    Ideally you should upload your UI5 project/ BSP app. If you want to upload build project, go to path for importing build project, rather than normal way of uploading ui5 project files.

    Hi Tejas,

    I think you can follow the steps below to import your fiori application from ABAP Gateway server to WebIDE.

    =======================================================================================

    Firstly you need to set up a trial account if you have not done so already,Cloud Cockpit

    You then need to set up destination values to you gateway instance of SAP. SAP HANA Cloud Platform

    Then go on to subscriptions and their should be one for the WebIDE

    Once in the WebIDE you can import and application from an ABAP respository.

    Choose your gateway server from the list and you should then be able to select the app of your choosing.

    ========================================================================================

    Best Regards,

    Kevin

    Did you try with different apps? Anfd, if you click ok, how does the Web IDE react?

    Normally, when you use connector to ABAP and import any BSP project, it should simply pull the pages/content.

    Do you observe any error in the web ide console?
