SAP HCP openSAP course guide week 6

[Update: This course is being repeated with updates]

Hi everyone, please be informed that the course “Introduction to SAP HANA Cloud Platform” was updated with new functionalities of the platform. Some of the units from the first course in 2013 no longer work seamlessly. To avoid issues on your side, please look into the repetition of the course “Introduction to SAP HANA Cloud Platform”. There is also a course guide available with the links to all blog posts I wrote for the updated course.

Course Guide Week 6 – Advanced Features

Hi everyone,

we’re coming to the end of the  course Introduction to SAP HANA Cloud Platform.

This last week will provide you with some insights into additional features like the SAP HANA Cloud Portal, Gateway-As-A-Service and SAP Mobile Platform – cloud Version.

Find below some additional information related to this week of our course.

Table of Contents

Unit 1 – SAP HANA Cloud Portal

Additional Information

Promo video of SAP HANA Cloud Portal

Unit 2 – Gateway As A Service

Common issues

You can’t access Gateway as a Service

In case your account was already created at the time when Gateway-As-A-Service was not available on the trial landscape you are not able to use Gateway-As-A-Service. The only way you can fix this is by creating a new account on the trial landscape again.

Unit 3 – SAP Mobile Platform – enterprise edition – Cloud version

Unit 4 – Wrap-Up And Outlook

      It seems that allot of people (including myself) are unable to access gwaas. Looks like it has something to do with our cloud accounts being created before gwaas was available. We don't have the "account" option under Authorization Management -> Roles to be able to select gwaas and therefore add the necessary roles.

      There are posts on the course forum about this but no announcement of any action at this stage?

      Regards...

      Hi Fabian, see my comment above to Jason. To get this fixed you'll have to create a new account on the trial landscape. Sorry for that.

      Hi Fabian, you'll have to use another email address. Sorry.

      Hi Fabian,

      if your mail service supports that you could also try to use <user>+suffix@yourdomain.com. (See "Subaddressing" in RFC 5233 - Sieve Email Filtering: Subaddress Extension ). Mail should be delivered to your "original" mailbox.

      br, Marc

      Hi Jason, we have worked on fixing this issue and currently the only way to get around this is to create a new account so that you have access to the GWaaS functionality (see also the forum post https://open.sap.com/courses/7/discussion_topics/4705).

      Sorry that this seems to be the only way we can handle this.

      Best,

      Hi Rui,

      It was really very tough to pace up with the load of information provided in the six weeks course. I had several issues that I looked through the blogs and resolved. In this week6 Cloud portal exercise, I was not able to see any demo sites neither the "New Site" button delivered any action. Please help me out on what I have missed in configuring the HCP.

      Also, I started using Windows 8.1(x64) on my new laptop and tried to install HCP Eclipse tools. The installation was successful with no errors but when I tried creating new server, the list didn't show SAP HCP or local runtime options. Where I am wrong on this ?

      Thanks for your help in advance.

      Hi Wasim,

      with the details provided it's very difficult to help.

      If you'd provide a more detailed description of your issues in the forum of the openSAP course at https://open.sap.com/courses/7/discussion_topics?module=45 it'll be much easier for us to help.

      Best,
      Rui
