What's New

New features and enhancements in the SAP Cloud Platform Mobile Services Cloud Foundry environment.

September 2020

Feature Type Description
Enable API keys for Anonymous Access from the client New Enable client-side applications to use API keys as credentials.
Configure regional URL for Discovery Service New You can now configure a regional URL for Discovery service via SAP Cloud Platform. If configured, the regional URL appears in the Mobile Services cockpit when you select Settings > Discovery Service.
Changed Mobile App Update user interface for MDK Change Updated the Mobile Services cockpit user interface for Mobile App Update. The Mobile Development Kit now reflects current names. Also updated the user documentation to better reflect MDK.
Support for crash dumps New Upload files to support crash dump processing for iOS and Android clients. When enabled, the SDK uploads crash logs from the client to the server.
Generic QR code for MDK New Mobile Services cockpit now supports generic QR codes for applications developed with Mobile Development Kit. Previously separate QR codes were generated for Apple and Android applications. You can still configure separate QR codes manually.


Feature Type Description
New authentication method New A new app-level security authentication method is available, "API Key Only". Use cases provide "anonymous" access or "no authentication" options, similar to what is offered in the Neo landscape. Only AppRouter allows API Key authentication. The Anonymous section is now renamed to API Key on the app Security tab.
Application plan New A new column called License Type now appears on the application overview page, and the information appears under Application Details. This enables you to identify the application plan that was in place when the app was created.
Change the Mobile Services cockpit language Change You can change the Mobile Services cockpit user interface language via User Setting. Previously, you could only change the UTC/time zone through User Setting.
Test destination links in a browser New Use the new Launch in Browser icon to test destination links that cannot be tested using Ping or OData tests (for example, destinations involving Cloud Connector or, in general, destinations that cannot be invoked from the logged in administrator). Previously, Ping and Testing OData Destinations tests had been disabled for this type of destination.When you select Launch in Browser, the mobile application URL is used to test connectivity (the same URL that the application uses to interact with the destination). The application URL is modified and routed through App-router, which allows a separate login by a business user (end user). The results appear in a separate web browser tab.
