[Update: April 5th, 2016 –  The Live3 on HCP tutorial series was created using the SAP HANA Cloud Platform free developer trial landscape in January 2015. The HCP landscape has significantly evolved over the past year. Therefore one may encounter many issues while following along with the series using the most recent version of the free developer trail edition of HCP.]


In this SAP HANA Academy tutorial video Philip Mugglestone shows how to add a cloud system using the Eclipse SAP HANA Administration perspective to connect Eclipse to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform developer trail account. Watch the step-by-step tutorial video below.

First specify the Landscape host by changing the default hana.ondemand.com to hanatrail.ondemand.com. Then enter your Account name, User name and Password. This information can be found on the SAP HANA Cloud Platform cockpit. The Account name is your p number and the User name is the p number with trail removed. If you’ve log in through SCN then your password is your SCN password. Click next and then choose dev (the SAP HANA Instance you created earlier) as your Trail Instance before clicking finish.

(2:55 – 4:06) Overview of Catalog Folder and HCP Schema

Once completed you will have successfully made a connection from Eclipse running on your desktop to your SAP HANA Instance running in the SAP HANA Cloud Platform trial landscape. Now you have access to different folders in the Eclipse SAP HANA Administration Console. The catalog folder allows you to see runtime objects in your SAP HANA database. Note the specific HCP schema and some of the various procedures and views in the schema that we will use later on in the scenario.
