  1. First step is to configure Destination in HCP Cockpit for consuming OData service using destination editor.Using Destination editor we can configure HTTP,Mail and RFC destinations.By configuring destinations we can connect our web applications to internet or make it consume an on-premise backend system.We can also send email from our application using an email provider that is accessible from internet.We can also invoke an RFC function module in an on-premise ABAP system.From menu of hcp cockpit choose destination then choose new Destination.Add additional properties by clicking 'New Property'.I am using northwind odata service.Find details in image.
