SAP HANA 2.0 Express Edition | URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the HALM

SAP HANA comes with different tools that can be accessed via Browser. The URLs, of course, differ and also require certain permissions. In addition some minor configuration to the SAP HANA database needs to be done to make all tools fully available.

This is a list of all my blog-posts about those tools:

URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the Web Dispatcher

URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the HALM

URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the Web-based Development Workbench

URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the XS Classic Server

URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the HDBLCM

URLs, Permissions and Configuration for the SAP HANA Cockpit for Offline Administration


In this blog I explain how to access SAP HANA’s HALM which stands for SAP HANA Application Lifecycle Management. It is the main tool if it comes to developing, transporting, installing applications for the XS classic server.

I am using SAP HANA 2.0 Express in a VM Ware Container.

How to download & install SAP HANA Express is explained in this Youtube-Video

I am using the Package “Server only virtual machine”.


Required Configuration

In case the HALM of the System Database shall be reached, no configuration is required.

To be able to reach the HALM for a tenant database, the Web Dispatcher needs to be configured to forward incoming requests to the tenant database. The routing is done via the hostname used in the caller’s URL.

Beside the configuration of the Web Dispatcher, virtual hostnames need to be defined as well. In this example this is done by adding virtual hostnames to file /etc/hosts.

For a detailed description about all this please read my blog SAP HANA 2.0 Express Edition, Transport between Tenants. It also includes a description about howto create a tenant database.

Required Authorization

To be able to logon to HALM as administrator create a new user and add the following roles.

HALM offers a link to the development workbench (ide). To be able to access the ide from HALM the user needs additional roles.

At least role “sap.hana.xs.ide.roles::Developer” is required.

All details about the roles are described in the SAP HANA Security Guide.


URLs of HALM, to reach tenant SRC are:



Login to HALM was successful.

Also the link to the ide is working.

That’s it, thank you very much, please like and subscribe Feel free to leave a comment..
