SAP HANA Cloud Platform Cockpit – The New Home for all Cloud Portal Roles

Today, you can create and assign technical roles in Cloud Portal (Administrators and Site Creators) by accessing the Cloud Portal administration space under the Authorization tab. However, organization roles (as known as operation roles) are created in the HANA Cloud Platform cockpit from the portal application subscription view.

With the new release of Cloud Portal (scheduled for February 26) we intend to align all Cloud Portal roles creation and assignment to be fully carried out in the HANA Cloud Platform cockpit. In addition, the technical roles Administrator and Creator have now been combined into a single Administrator role, defined as TENANT_ADMIN in HANA Cloud Platform.

The Authorizations tab in Cloud Portal will be revised to accommodate these changes, including a direct link to the cockpit where you can manage all roles.


To assign a technical role:

  1. Open the HANA Cloud Platform cockpit.
  2. Select Services from the view on the left.
  3. In the HANA Cloud Portal entry, click Configure Roles.


  4. Assign the role of TENANT_ADMIN to one or more groups or individuals.


With this change, all existing Administrator and Creator roles from both trial and productive landscapes, will be automatically migrated to fit the new roles mechanism. More details can be found in the Cloud Portal online documentation.

      Hi Ifat,

      Good to know this update. I have a question. We have full license to HCP and we faced one peculiar issue when we got the access to our account. We had an ID that had Tenant_Admin role assigned on platform, but that ID did not have "administrator" role on Cloud Portal. And therefore, we were not able to see any content on cloud portal. Ideally, we should have got "administrator" role for account admin ID in CP as well, right?

      Now, that roles are getting aligned, what happens to existing users? For e.g. In our situation in which our account admin ID did not have administrator role assigned on CP, how will aligning roles on cockpit will help? As I understand, managing access in cockpit should reflect corresponding access in cloud portal, am I right?

      Best Regards,

      Hi Ameya,

      All existing users that were assigned to Cloud Portal roles were migrated to the web-application role TENANT_ADMIN.

      Now, you have only one location where you should maintain your user access to Cloud Portal.

      Best Regards, Amit
