  6. Select the appropriate security configuration from the Security configuration drop-down list.
    For applications that do not require authentication, select the anonymous security configuration or the Anonymous access checkbox.
  7. Select the appropriate domain from the Domain drop-down list.
  8. Select a Base Template to use as the template for the application connection settings.
    To review the properties of the template, click View. You can modify the template properties after you create the application.
  9. Enter the URL pointing to the EIS as the Application Endpoint.
    OData applications require a proxy type connection endpoint. You can automatically create the proxy connection endpoint by entering an OData URL as the Application Endpoint. This creates a proxy connection endpoint with the same name as the Application ID. If the OData application uses an anonymous security configuration, the newly created connection endpoint will have the Allow Anonymous Access property set to True and the Address (URL) property set to the Application ID. If you want to create the proxy connection endpoint manually, create the proxy connection endpoint through the SAP Control Center Domains node.
  10. Enter the SAP Mobile Platform URL used by the EIS to forward notifications as the Push endpoint.
  11. Click OK to complete the application definition.
