Where to install HANA Cloud Connector to use SAP Web IDE in a productive environment


Hi experts,

This is my first post on SCN, and I am hoping to get some help from all of the experts out here.

At my client, we are implementing about 50-60 Fiori apps (out of the box Fiori apps + enhancing standard Fiori apps + custom SAPUI5 Fiori like apps). Our client has decided to use SAP Web IDE for productive use (not developer) to enhance these Fiori applications. We have an on-premise Netweaver gateway system that is connected to a Suite on HANA system.

Our questions are as follows:

1) Where should we install the HANA Cloud Connector? Do we need to install it on each developer's machines (we have about 10 developers) or can we install it directly on the Gateway?

2) Is there any supporting documentation out there explaining either solution?

I used the below architecture diagram from this presentation as well as this 6 part blog post to setup SAP Web IDE on my laptop using my HCP trial account. I am wondering if anything would change for a productive environment.

Any help and insight would be much appreciated.
