Creating a Northwind Destination

Configure a destination in the SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit in order to bypass the same-origin policy of the browser.

To be able to test your app, you can use a remote OData service that provides product data from the Northwind demo service of the OData group.

Choose Destinations from the navigation bar of the SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit and then choose New Destination from the toolbar.

Enter the following values into the corresponding fields:

With this configuration you can use the destination for any app inside the SAP Web IDE. Whenever an app calls a (local) service beginning with /destinations/northwind/*, the created destination becomes active as a simple proxy. This helps to smoothly prevent any possible issues related to the same-origin policy of browsers.
