Using an Interactive ABAP Report to SynchronizeLocate this document in the navigation structure

You can either upload a SAPUI5 application to or download a SAPUI5 application from the SAPUI5 repository by using an interactive ABAP report.


Uploading or Downloading a single SAPUI5 Application


You have installed the SAP UI Add-On 1.0 or SAP NetWeaver 7.4 or later.

To upload or download a single SAPUI5 application, use the report /UI5/UI5_REPOSITORY_LOAD. When running the report, enter the name of the SAPUI5 application in the respective input field on the screen. The report selection screen also features a checkbox allowing you to specify whether or not the line endings should be adjusted automatically during the upload.


Compared to the ABAP team repository provider it does not offer a built-in code merge. Here, a separate source code repository like git or Subversion (SVN) may be used. The report is shipped via SAP note 1793771 Information published on SAP site Up/Download SAPUI5 Application into/from UI5 Repository and as part of the UI add-on for SAP NetWeaver SP03 delivery.

Uploading one or more SAPUI5 Applications from an Archive


You have installed the user interface add-on version 1.0 SP06 or SAP NetWeaver 7.4 SP05.

  • To upload a SAPUI5 application from a zip or war archive, use /UI5/UI5_REPOSITORY_LOAD_HTTP.
  • To upload several SAPUI5 applications from a zip or war archive at once, use /UI5/UI5_REPOSITORY_LOAD_HTTPN.

To execute the report, you need to provide several parameters, as displayed in the following screenshot.


You can either enter the parameters in the displayed input fields or you provide them in an optional file .Ui5RepositoryUploadParameters located in the archive. Each line represents a parameter. The format is <parameter name> = <parameter value>.

The report can be run in several modes:

  • Delta Mode: Mark this checkbox in case you only want to upload those files, that are new or that have been modified.
  • Test Mode: Mark this checkbox in case you want to see a log file displaying what the report is doing.

Additionally, both reports and the function module /UI5/UI5_REPOSITORY_LOAD_HTTP have the following features:

  • They can automatically convert text files from unix format to windows-like format.
  • You can schedule them on the SAP Web Application Server.
  • The possibility to automate Maven builds as a remote-enabled function module is available.

For more information, see the report documentation as well as the documentation of the function module /UI5/UI5_REPOSITORY_LOAD_HTTP in the system and SAP note 1893133 Information published on SAP site.
