Cloud Connector Configurations for SAP MII

Cloud Connector Introduction:

The cloud connector serves as the link between on-demand applications in SAP HANA Cloud Platform and existing on-premise systems.

The cloud connector runs as on-premise agent in a secured network and acts as a reverse invoke proxy between the on-premise network and SAP HANA Cloud Platform. Due to its reverse invoke support, you don’t need to configure the on-premise firewall to allow external access from the cloud to internal systems. The cloud connector provides fine-grained control over:

  • On-premise systems and resources that shall be accessible by cloud applications;
  • Cloud applications that shall make use of the cloud connector.


In This blog showing Configuration settings of cloud connector while connecting with SAP MII.

  • Click here to download cloud connector zip file.
  • Extract zip file and run go.btach file.
  • Launch cloud connector by entering https ://< hostname>:8443 in browser where <hostname> is the host name of the machine on which you have  installed the cloud connector.
  • If you access the cloud connector locally from the same machine, you can just enter localhost where 8443 is an open port.
  • Log in to the Cloud Connector:

While logging first time provide username as “Administrator”

Password as “manage”.

Note: Both UserName and Password are case sensitive.

  • You will find two installation types,
    1. Master Installation
    2. Shadow Installation

           Use Master Installation, if you are installing a single cloud instance.

  • Change your Password from default.
  • Establish connectivity between Cloud Connector and Cloud Platform

          Provide  Account Name and Account user details of SAP HANA Cloud platform.

  •     Provide IP address and Port number of server on which  SAP MII is running.SystemMapping2.png
  • Provide Virtual host and Port  as URL Property of the HTTP destination configuration in SAP HANA Cloud Platform.
  • As Virtual host name we can give any dummy name which does not need to exist for example in above image given as “test”.
  • The Virtual Port allows you to distinguish between different entry points of your back-end system, for example, HTTP/80 and HTTPS/443, and have different    sets of access control settings for them.

  • Additionally we can check connectivity status of connector with Cloud by logging in Cloud platform.
  • Login to Cloud platform.
  • Go to Connectivity Tab, Select Cloud Connectors and check the details of Configured Cloud connector and Exposed back end.

Note: While Configuring Destinations in cloud platform, provide Virtual host name and Port number in URL.

Check the connectivity status by clicking on “Test Connection”
