Cannot see Device Type in WebIDE

Hi all,

I have recently follow instruction on SAP Help (SAP IoT Application Enablement: Quick Start : https://help.sap.com/viewer/9dfedbe95cbe4a9f9a5ceddbef7f88e5/1.69.0.0/en-US)


to configure SAP IoT Application Enablement (on Cloud Foundry) and SAP Web IDE Full Stack (on Neo).
However, after configuring everything, I'm not able to see the Device Type I created in the Thing Modeler.

Here's the Package (computeriotdevice) I configure in my IoT AE. Scope = Tenant

Here's the Thing Type generice_computer_3 I configure in my IoT AE
I found in the trial IoT AE, connectivity has been configured to connect to CF IoT Service.
I also have an IoT Service instance running on my Cloud Foundry environment with device, capabilities, etc.
But I don't have how to configure in IoT AE accordingly.

Here's the result in creating Freestyle IoT Project in Web IDE (Neo)
I can't find generic_computer_3

Any advice? Thank you

    Please make sure you stick to using the REST-based thing modeler and apis. REST-based is the default for most customers at this point. OData-based will give you the new flexible mapping from thing to device but will have limitations in particular when using the web ide iot template. We will provide a what's new/release note at https://help.sap.com/viewer/DRAFT/2b12f896e29d4c4e94323df5a26fcc25/latest/en-US once this is resolved and then it is a good idea to move to the odata based thing model.
