And now a Git panel will be shown on the right side of the Web IDE. Click on Pull to get the latest Widget updates.

Once the Pull operation is completed, you will see a confirmation message at the top right side of the Web IDE

Step 2: Deploy Updated Version of ShortPoint Widget into SAP Cloud Portal

A "Login to SAP HANA Cloud Platform" popup might appear, if you have not deployed yet during the current session.

Note: Sometimes an error may occur during deployment telling you to "Try again Later", if SAP Web IDE current session has been opened for a long time. If it happened with you, simply just refresh the SAP Web IDE page.
