SAP Cloud Platform SDK for iOS Walk Through – Part 1

May 2, 2017

This blog was written to walk you through the creation of a BASIC Apple SWIFT mobile application and integrate it with the SAP Cloud Platform.

We won’t go into many complex details in this blog, we will keep it very very simple. The point is to provide you with an understanding on how a SWIFT application and the SAP Cloud Platform can work together.

This first part of the series will walk you though how to create a new application within HCPms

Log into your SAP Cloud Platform and load your dashboard


After logging in your will be presented with an overview of your SAP Cloud Platform Dashboard

Load the SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Service

Please note that there is no service called SAP Cloud Platform, instead it is called Development and Operations under the Mobile Services header


Enable the Development and Operations service and Launch the service

Ensure that the Development and Operations service is enabled. You should only have to do this once.

After the service is enabled, click on the Go to Service

The structure of the URL is as follows: https://hcpmsadmin-<ACCOUNT ID>


Create new Mobile Application

After the Mobile Services dashboard loads, you will want to create a new MOBILE application. Please note that these applications are different thanthe JAVA or HTML applications created in HCP ( Yep, confusing I know )

Click on the New App tile

Create New SAP Cloud Platform Application

Use similar information when creating the SAP Cloud Platform application

Edit Application Backend Connection Details

We want our example to provide an integration point to a backend system. We don’t want to go into the complexities of integrating into an ECC system, so we are just going to use a publicly available ODATA Service

Click on the ‘Destinations’ link to create the backend connection

Click Next

For this example, lets utilize Basic Authentication.
