Prompt "invalid URL ..." when connect to an internet odata_gen destination with BasicAuthentication

Hi Colleagues,


I 'm using the local version of SAPWebIDE for some study, and met a back-end system connection issue, following is the details.


SAPWebIDE 1.16.4


The target system is NetWeaver for Java 7.4 (short for N74), which has the BPM Odata Service I want to consumed, and which has a access control of BasicAuthentication type of authentication.

The system is in our group's sandbox environment, I could only access it from my PC use static IP in company's intranet. The SAPWebIDE is installed on my PC.

According to the guide pdf, I choose ProxyType=Internet for my destination config, I used a hostname ("" in the snagit) instead of IP, it was configed in my PC's host file properly. the Authentication is BasicAuthentication, finally the Odata Service is nerver worked.


I succeed connecting to northwind odata service. and succeed consuming N74 BPM Odata Service via my proxy which write in Java, the proxy did the BasicAuthentication, the destination work fine with NoAuthentication.


I also attched some pictures of the screen short.

version-info.png  --- Shows the SAPWebIDE Welcome tab page. could see version information.

dest-info.png       --- Shows the actual configurations of my destination.

prompt-error.png --- Shows the step of adding a OData Service, but failed with prompt "invalid URL Enter a valid URL and try again"

Hopefully someone could help, thanks a lot!

Best Regards,

Hi everyone,

I'd like to do some updates regard to this issue,

Laterly, I moved all my work to, And with its WebIDE (version is 1.16.4), the previous error disappeared!

version info:

correct result:


In order to move env from local to, the HAT environment should be upgraded to latest (a newer) version. it will takes some time to download, install, and initialize.


1. The Cloud version of WebIDE is always the best choice for UI5 Mobile develop. It will has less bugs, and you don't need any extra effort spending on publish service from intranet to internet.

2. My version of local SAPWebIDE might have bugs on doing Basic Authentication.

Best Regards,
