Defining ApplicationsLocate this document in the navigation structure

Create a new native, hybrid, Mobile BI, or Agentry application definition, which enables you to use Management Cockpit to manage the application.

Procedure

  1. In Management Cockpit, select Applications, and click New.
  2. In the New Application window, enter:
    Field Value
    ID

    Unique identifier for the application, in reverse domain notation. This is the application or bundled identifier that the application developer assigns or generates during application development. The administrator uses the application ID to register the application with the server, and the client application uses the application ID to send requests to the server. Reverse domain notation means reversing a registered domain name; for example, reverse domain notation for MyApp.sap.com is com.sap.MyApp.

    The application identifier:
    • Must be unique.
    • Must start with an alphabetic character.
    • Can contain only alphanumeric characters, underscores, and periods.
    • Cannot include spaces.
    • Can be up to 64 characters long.
    Note Keywords that you cannot use as application identifiers include: Admin, AdminData, Push, smp_cloud, resource, test-resources, resources, Scheduler, odata, applications, Connections, public, lcm (and its variations, such as LCM, Lcm, lCM, LcM, lcM). These keywords are case-sensitive.
    Formatting guidelines:
    • SAP recommends that application IDs contain a minimum of two periods. For example, this ID is valid: com.sap.mobile.app1.
    • Application IDs cannot start with a period. For example, this ID is invalid: .com.sap.mobile.app1.
    • Application IDs cannot include two consecutive periods. For example, this ID is invalid: com..sap.mobile.app1.
    Name Application name. The name:
    • Can contain only alphanumeric characters, spaces, underscores, and periods.
    • Can be up to 80 characters long.
    Vendor (Optional) Vendor who developed the application. The vendor name:
    • Can contain only alphanumeric characters, spaces, underscores, and periods.
    • Can be up to 255 characters long.
    Type
    Application type.
    • Native – native applications, including Android, BlackBerry, iOS, and Windows Applications.
    • Hybrid – Kapsel container-based applications.
    • Agentry – metadata-driven applications.
    • Mobile BI- Mobile Business Intelligence applications.
    Description (Optional) Short description of the application. The description:
    • Can contain alphanumeric characters.
    • Can contain most special characters, except percent signs (%) and ampersands (&).
    • Can be up to 255 characters long.
  3. Click Save. You see application-related tabs, such as Back End, Authentication, Push, and so forth. The tabs you see differ by application type. You are ready to configure the application, based on the application type.
    Note These tabs appear in Management Cockpit only after you define or select an application. Task descriptions use a "navigational shorthand"—such as "select Start of the navigation path Applications Next navigation step Back End End of the navigation path—to indicate the tab where tasks are performed, relative to that selected application, rather than repeating the entire navigation instruction.
